You'd be surprised. Bandai's Gundam software used to run on PCs until
the Gundam Shop CD-ROMs came out. They require Japanese windows to run.
Fortunately if you have a Mac the Mac version will run on a U.S. machine
without the need to install a Japanese OS.

I have the Mac version of Pro for Mac and used to have the PC version of
Lite. The user interface is totally difference. Lite's interface is more
GUI-like and extremely easy to use (but appears more limited, too), while
the Pro version is less intuitive with its interface, and you definitely
need to be able to read the manual to know what each icon stands for.
The Lite version also comes with less 3D models - you get the popular
mobile suits, but not a complete collection of all the ships, vehicles,
etc. that the Pro version gives you.

The PC version of Lite wouldn't work on U.S. Windows 95, but appears to work
on U.S. Windows 98. Dunno about the Pro version though.
