IMHO the "operating system" is something like DOS, OS/2, etc. Windows is a
"platform" in that it operates on top of the DOS operating system, but the
user uses it to launch his or her applications, including those based on the
operating system.

This can get even more complicated because there are other types of
platforms deep down inside the works too, particularly with mainframes.

I would never consider "operating system" to be synonymous with "platform."
