IF that is the case then from about 1980 to about 1985, Ventura 
Publishing was one of the better publishing softwares for the PC. 
MS Word from about version 5 is usable. For the Mac world there 
was Pagemaker, Framemaker and Adobe Illistrator. For Sun 
workstations there was Interleaf(grief). Framemaker crossed 
platforms and became available on both PC and Sun workstations.  

And the latest news is that Mac is crossing over and the next 
generation Macs will use an Intel Processor. Looks like there will be 
little differences now.
