What do you mean by OS commands?
Yes there are differences, but they are minor enough to most people that only a few would be working at the level where you would know.

Most applications these days regardless of type are running on top of a OS layer. So either you are working with normal logic code, or calling OS commands to perform some system function. Very rarely are developers working straight to the metal.
