This debate came up in a computer programming seminar that I attended. Huge debates on core differences. Really- what are these core differences? The UI design may be different, but what are the differences anyway between these versions of Windows?

 iPod touch 5th gen - iOS 8.0.2
 Mac mini Server M10 - OS X 10.9.5
