Over the years , a certain couple of companies have tried to make sure PC = or its perception to mean "Windows " being what makes a PC to be a PC..example screwgooled marketing campaign, and of course Apple's famous : I'm a Mac & I'm a PC viral marketing campaigns..

iOS devices are locked to iOS. Windows Phone to Windows Phone. Google also likes locking devices to Android.
