Re: Change for the Red Dot
Mac does have some advantages. Don't underestimate the power of muscle memory and the placement & use of the cmd key instead of ctrl for many things, especially cut and paste.
But that's just a keyboard, and I could use a mac layout on windows if I really wanted. The OS is good, doesn't have some of the craziness that's in Windows. QA is lacking on both sides, but Apple are nowhere near as bad as Microsoft over the last year. HiDPI still doesn't work properly on Windows too, it's a lot better on Mac. Microsoft still don't have a multi-tab terminal/console app. Talking of apps, the MS 'app store' is a junkyard.
There are some softwares that are much loved and only on Mac - DevonTHINK, Sketch, Keynote, anything by Omni. The same goes for Windows, there are some great tools there too that aren't on Mac (can't think of one right now though). Pick one and run with it.
As for Linux, I can't run a large wedge of software on there including Adobe. Not that it would matter with a broken butterfly keyboard anyway. It was the keyboard and not the cost that led me away from Apple - I spent the same amount on a Windows machine (Dell XPS 15).
Apple is all about taking things away - USB A, MagSafe, F-Keys, replaceable parts, SD Card reader. All the things I want and need. Now they've taken quality from the keyboard. iOS 13 promises to be more desktop-like, so the end is coming for OSX/MacOS, and probably Intel-based devices too.
