No, it's for all Macs, but for Macs only. All Macs will use this info  
(such as window size and position and, in applications, font choice,  
font size, last used printer, last options for this printer, and so  
forth). But only Macs will be able to use it.

On Macs resource forks will be invisible. But on other OSes they will  
appear as ._something files, where there might confuse readers of the  
magnum opus.

Similarly .DS_Store files are used only by the Mac OS X Finder and  
are invisible to its user. But on other OSes they will appear as  
additional .DS_Store files.

For more info see the pointers provided by Enrico Franconi a few  
months ago:


Hope this helps,
