If Macs could read/write to NTFS partitions natively without needing a third party solution

The number of Windows to OSX converts would skyrocket.

If you're already stuck in the Windows 10 quagmire (such as yours truly), minimize your exposure to Microsoft's products and services. That means not using Microsoft's browsers, Bing, Onedrive, Outlook (Hotmail), Skype, Office 365.

And use a local account, not a Microsoft account. Avoid the Microsoft app store.

Anyhow, the schism between Macs and Windows PCs has been mostly resolved long ago, when Macs switched from PowerPC chips to Intel chips.

A Mac is something I will seriously consider in future. The major bugbear would be gaming, but most modern games are crappy products that fleece you through microtransactions. The games I really love to play are the ones from 1980s to mid-2000s, with a few strategy games published this decade. A Windows partition could take care of this problem. Steam on Mac takes care of most modern games.
