comment Difference Between “Computadora” and “Ordenador”
I believe it has nothing to do with 'putting in order', is rather that you 'give orders/commands' to the ordenador.

comment Difference Between “Computadora” and “Ordenador”
Totally agree. I know in Spain they use ordenador. In Mexico we say computadora more often, but we do understand ordenador, though it sounds a bit too proper.

I'm sorry, the phrase mala gente does exist, it's just is much less common to hear. There's even a song by colombian singer Juanes called Mala gente

comment What is the difference between “personas” and “gente”?
In México there is a common phrase to refer to someone as being buena gente, which means someone is good, nice, trustable: Conocí a Juan, parece que es buena gente. can be translated as I met Juan, he seems like a nice guy.. However, there is no such phrase as mala gente, it is only used in the positive way.

Note that gente does not have a plural form, even though some people use it. It is wrong and may make you sound illiterate.

comment What is the difference between “tuyo” and “suyo”?
The correct translations would be: - Mi vehículo es mejor que el tuyo/suyo. (non-formal/formal) - Tu gato es más gordo que el suyo. - Tu foto es más fea que la suya.

comment Is it an insult to call someone 'cabrón'?
+1 because the answer explains all meanings I have heard 'Cabrón' used for (I'm mexican too). But please! use proper punctuation marks and capitalization!

comment Past passive form of “Godzilla ha comido el hombre”
I agree #3 is gramatically correct, though is not very often to hear that tense on a conversation. It actually sounds a bit too proper for me, something you may found only in literature.

comment What's the difference between “vamos” and “vámonos”?
This is common in Mexico as well, but is really slang.

comment What is the difference between “tuyo” and “suyo”?
Sus has no gender, it's used either for masculine and feminine stuff. Note that it's different from Suyos/Suyas where the gender is specified: Estas gafas son suyas.
