Does one term have two more words than the other? Yet they share all the same letters, save one?

By "difference of one letter" do you mean: one has one more letter than the other? One different letter? Are all the letters in the same order in both terms?

Do the two terms have two different words? And one different letter? Are all the letters that are the same in the same order in both terms? (e.g. "I stopped" and "Is topped")?

Does any of the terms describe: hardware? software? A company? A process? A brand? Is any of them acronyms? Are they both well known computer terms?

Are the two words WORDs? Together making a DWORD? Which represents a single character?

Could it be "DWORD" (2) and "QWORD" (4) ?

I suppose so, Vadron, since it wasn't a difference of two "Words" in the expected sense.

Are they two acronyms, and they have one letter different, but two words? (for example, LCD and LED have a difference of one letter and three words)

So this is two computer terms, one of which represents hardware and the other software, which are acronyms?
