The article was published in 2005 and the following statement is no longer true:

"While the Macintosh can natively generate graphics in PDF format, the
PC cannot (without jumping through some hoops and purchasing Acrobat,
that is)."

Stata 12 for Windows can export graphs in PDF format without jumping
through hoops.

. sysuse auto
. scatter mpg weight
. graph export graph.pdf

I would be grateful to receive advice from experienced users on problems and
pitfalls to look out for when transferring between Mac and Windows versions
of Stata.  The scenario is that the user will have their own Windows system
in the office but will wish to use their Mac system on a laptop when not in
the office. Therefore, they may be transferring Stata files of various sorts
from one system to another on a regular basis.

Many thanks

Best wishes
