David and Goliath. Kirk and Khan. Harry and Voldemort. Bitter rivalries can permeate more than pop culture—perhaps none more so than the unrelenting standoff between Apple and Microsoft.

In fact, the companies themselves even reinforce this idea.

On the flip side, Microsoft paints Apple fans as sheep who flock blindly toward anything and everything Apple does, while their own users are smarter, better spenders, and infinitely more tech-savvy.

But are the rivals’ users really that different?

According to this infographic from Business Insider and Ranker, the opinions of Apple fans and Microsoft devotees definitely diverge on some things. Check it out:
