Operating system is not really important... the issue mostly arises with how different browsers interpret code and how the website is displayed at different resolutions/screen sizes. Browsers these days are more standardized than in the past, so that is not really so much of a problem as it used to be, but still crops up from time to time. The big issue today is compatibility with mobile (smartphones+tablets). Sites that can change their design dynamically to fit mobile browsers are known as "responsive".

Since you don't seem to have much experience designing websites, I would recommend contracting a designer or using a website like Zenfolio, Smugmug or SquareSpace where most of the work of compatibility with different browsers and screen sizes is done for you. You may also find some luck with Wordpress, which is a blogging software that offers a lot of "responsive" templates where all you have to do is load the images into a pre-designed page.

Remember...some tablets like IPads don't handle flash

So if you want to gain their attention, don't use flash pages

+1 on the flash. Nothing says "irrelevant" faster than a website full of flash that will not play on an iOS device. About a third of my website hits are mobile and almost 90% of those hits are from iOS devices.

I am currently in the process of setting up my own page.

It is very basic right now, will share on here a bit later maybe.

But I am using godaddy for hosting and domain registration, using wordpress and some plugins, it is fully optimised for tablets, mobiles etc.

WOrks great on chrome, safari, firefox... yet to try IE...
