I've not had much of a problem (as an Apple user) interacting with those in the Windows environment, and I've been doing it for decades now, both in my previous work environment (which was entirely Windows-based) and at my university (which was mostly a Windows environment).
I've always hooked up my laptop to the projectors and sound in the classrooms, bypassing the Windows computers they had in those classrooms with no issue at all. My laptop connects wirelessly to the school's network without a problem. My iPhone connects via Bluetooth to both our Subaru and our Prius; the cars play my sound files just fine and display the GPS maps. I can export files from the iPhone or my (Macintosh) laptop to Windows machines without problems (for instance, I export my Keynote [Apple-only] presentations as .ppt files and they'll play, though the Keynote animations are better-looking). YouTube doesn't have any trouble uploading my movie (.mov) files. And so on. I upload pictures I've taken on my iPhone to this bulletin board and others without issue.
At least in my experience, there's been very few problems using Apple products in a mixed environment, FWIW. Sometimes you can't use the native Apple-based files -- for instance, no Windows computer will recognize a .key (Keynote) file -- but you should be able to export the files in a compatible format for other computers -- to keep with the same example, by exporting your Keynote presentation as a .ppt (Powerpoint) file, assuming of course that the Windows user has MS Office on their computer.
