    Re: sentence correction

    Neither is correct without the right capitalisation.

    Microsoft Windows
    Apple iOS

    Neither of your sentences has a final punctuation mark.
    There are two missing question marks.
    Your final sentence is grammatically incorrect and has no final punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Before we answer your question, please show that you understood my last post by either clicking "Edit Post" on post #1 and making the relevant changes, or posting the whole thing again with correct capitalisation and punctuation.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: sentence correction

    I prefer neither.
    "I would like to give a brief comparison between Microsoft windows and apple ios"
    [Note that I haven't fixed your punctuation or capitalisation.]

    Comparison and vs don't go together for me either.
