RE: Platform versus Environment
I would not use either term. They're both too vague.
If you're talking about the operating system, say, "operating system." If
you're talking about the hardware, say, "hardware."

Subject: Platform versus Environment
Microsoft Manual of style suggests the use of "environment"
in place of
"platform". Do you do use "environment" ? I thought
"platform" was more
In a mainframe shop platform describes the purpose of the software suite, while environment describes the area in which it is allowed to run.
