while (x == true)--This is a boolean expression that will evaluate to either true or false based on the value of x. If x is true, the expression will evaluate to true. If x is false, the expression will evaluate to false.

while(x=true)--I am not completely sure about this one, but I think I got it. This is an assignment statement, not a comparison. So here you are assigning a value of true to x, and then x evaluates to true.

Yep, you are assigning true to x and the evaluating the loop
