I have not used Mathematica in a long time, but am about to get back 
into it. In it's first few versions (the only ones I have used) the Mac 
version was by far more polished, had more features, and was much 
stabler than its Windows counterpart (well, for everything I wanted to 
do, which was a lot). Such was the case for quite a few other programs 
at the time, including Microsoft's own cash caws, Excel and Word. 

Well, things changed for the Office suite- The Windows versions of Excel 
and Word have been "ahead" of the Mac versions for years (since v.5 of 
Excel).  What about Mathematica? On which OS is it "ahead" by and large 
/these/ days? How does its release/update history compare on the two 
platforms? The computer I will load this onto runs Mac OS 10.5.2, WinXP 
sp3, and of course Unix.

Many, many thanks in advance.
