To give you a little idea most people say Windows is more "newbie friendly" meaning easier to use while Mac is a bit more technical on most of their features. There are lots of differences between these two operating systems, too many to state in just one post, so it would be better if you'd just read up on some of these links below:

Hi Jeremy,

EPS is a Post-script that conforms to Document Structuring Convention (DSC) standards.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Document_Structuring_Conventions. The Post-script in this case usually has some sort of restrictions that can be as a graphic file format. There is no one way to Identify EPS file because of the different ways the files are previewed. So the difference between a Windows EPS file and a Mac EPS Files is:

1. A windows preview must start with 4 bytes in hexadecimal format, C5 D0 D3 C6. The file format is available on all Microsoft windows platforms

2. The Mac preview should have a resource fork. This preview is usually a PICT resource with ID 256.  The EPS should have an EPSF file type code.
