    What is really the difference between Apple and Microsoft?
    This is probably a stupid question,,
    The reason why I don't understand this difference is because you can install Windows in an Apple computer, and you can install MAC in a PC.

    So what makes the difference between PC and Apple? Apart from design and iPhones, iPads etc?

    cheers!

    You can't legally install OS X on any old PC.

    MS is a software company that makes some hardware.
    Apple is a hardware company that also makes software, primarily for use with their own hardware.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    You can usually get the job done on both but I have found that for me it is
    faster and easier on the Mac not to mention some of the worries I have with
    the PC I don't have with the Mac.

    What is the difference between Earth and Mars?

    They're both planets, both have water, yeah Mars is a bit colder but it could be made habitable. An no, there's no atmosphere AS SUCH on Mars, but you could wear a spacesuit. Mars is totally workable if you're willing to put up with some inconveniences and challenges -- so what's the real difference?

    If you work out the answer to my questions, you'll have the answer to your question.
