I will discuss the so-called two-families scenario in which stars having
small radii and masses smaller than a critical one are made of hadrons
while the most massive stars are strange quark stars. I will present the
main phenomenological implications of that scenario and I will also
compare it to the so-called twin-stars scenario. In particular, I will
present the many predictions of the two-families scenario that will most
likely allow the confirmtion or ruling out of that scheme in the next few
