The Stream classes can be used for any type of file, because it just reads and writes the bytes of the file. It doesn't look at what those files mean.
For text files, the Reader and Writer classes are better since they are able to convert the bytes into actual characters. While for simple ASCII text files you won't notice much difference, you will feel differently when reading unicode text files.
