Yeah, but what's the real
difference between 3/4 and 6/8 time?

I've sort of developed my own theory, but I still use the terms interchangably in some instances.
I'm wondering whether there is a be-all-end-all way to determine if a piece of music is in 3/4 or 6/8 meter, or whether it's more a matter of personal interpration.
