You will need to define what kind
of differences you are interested in. For example, the user interface can be very similar. Further, if you just use a web browser, you might never see ANY difference.
Look at the file and directory structure or the actual code in the kernel, and it will be like night and day.
From another viewpoint:
Windows evolved from MSDOS by adding layers of code (some of which MS ported from companies they acquired). All of the evolution took place in a proprietary environment.
Linux (the kernel) was written from scratch relatively late in the game. (After Unix, MSDOS, MacOS, etc.) Linux (the complete OS) then evolved in an OpenSource environment starting with the Gnu utilities that already existed.
