Thought OS by Apple — Emotional OS by Microsoft

When your thoughts and feelings, like a computer, run on different operating systems, is it any wonder that humans are so conflicted?

Thought is much simpler to clarify and explain than emotion. Yes, thought can get totally complex and into some really-deep and difficult topics. Yet thought is, overall, straightforward.

Emotions are complex on even their most base level. For example, no two people experience emotions in precisely the same way. We may give an emotion the same name, but what it looks like and how it feels is wholly unique to each of us.

Getting thought and feeling to communicate

If you know anything about computers then you know that Apple’s OS X and Microsoft’s Windows might have some similarities, yet also have some pretty key differences.
