I don't know about Macs but I wonder if it has to do with the conversion in the ASCII system. 
  In ASCII, which is used in the DOS system, that I think is still part of MS, the quote mark is :00100010, and Cap A is 01000001, lower case is 01100001, orher values for decimal. Perhaps Jobs wanted to confuse MS users.
  Just a thought .
  Binary alphabet or ASCII  alphabet. ?
  Another thought in the music vein
  Listening to a CD from Legacy Recordings, In the tune WISTDS, Louis in 1931, vocal  exchange with a member of the band, refers to Louis as "Dipper" , could this have been in reference to "Dipper mouth Blues"   ?
  Just another thought
