    Question What is the difference between Apple and PC

    Hello all, What is the difference between apple software and PC software? It is still made with zeros and ones right? I'm just not sure why a PC can't read a program written for Apple Computers. Just curious.

    Thanks
    Dave
    How do you keep a programmer in the shower all day?
    Give him a bottle of shampoo which says "lather, rinse, repeat."

    It's not that simple. Yes, all software is binary, but it has to be coded to run on a specific platform. Same reason why PS3 games won't load on a Xbox.
