Yes, check out the open source, free software called Audacity.  Otherwise, there's many commercial options too.

Used to be that the hardware was better and so those who were learning their craft when Apple had that advantage learnt on that platform and stuck with it - no need to relearn for a Windows version.

Nowadays there's really nothing to choose between systems as long as whichever you choose has the resources to process the data.  You'll find professional studios with both Windows and Mac.

"Used to be that the hardware was better"

but the point is, when using windows we can choose whatever OTHER hardware we like , right? no APPLE supposed to release the best music hardware, right?

I think so, that;s why I do not understand.

just like choose a DB platform, no matter it is open source DB or paid SW, as long as it works for you , Open source can be a good choice for anyone.
