comment What is the difference between these two versions of the Mishna Berura?
@Bochur613 there are no specific perushim in dirshu, it just brings sources and interpretations on the mishna berura on the daf e.g. it will bring a Psak from Rav Shlomo Zalman on the Halacha on the daf.

comment What is the difference between these two versions of the Mishna Berura?
Mishna Berura Oz Wehadar is very Makpid to bring every exact source in literally every citation. Mishna Berura Dirshu doesn't have that previous idea but it brings interesting interpretations and additions from the later and contemporary authorities on Halacha.
