Apple is a hardware company.

Microsoft is a software company.

Everything else follows from that.


Microsoft is a marketing company first and a software company second.

Apple depends on marketing much more than Microsoft does. In fact I don't think Microsoft could make a successful marketing campaign if their life depended on it.
