Two _distinct_ objects that are not different, actually (this also
applies to numbers -- their values get compared, not their identities).
I think you have the right ideas, just trying to perfect your choice of
words here -- distinct vs different. I think the best usage is:
"A is different from B" -> "A != B"
"A is distinct from B" -> "A is not B"
