Some of you may have noticed this before, but for those who aren’t familiar with this site, let me start off this article by saying that I’m a lifelong Windows user on the desktop side. This makes me a bit of a rare bird as a writer for an Apple site, but if you look at device ownership statistics, I actually write from a perspective that is quite common among iPad and iPhone users, overall.
I use Windows for work because I don’t have a choice. The apps I need to use for work aren’t available for any other OSs, so moving isn’t an option. It is what it is. While I don’t dislike Windows, I also don’t have any great love for it or devotion to it. Windows 10 gets the job done for work and that’s fine. I do think Microsoft has at least done a good job of making Windows 10 more secure and stable over the last few years.
As for the Mac, since I use my iPad Pro and iPhone for anything personal and have a work laptop with me most of the time, including at home, I just don’t have any incentive to introduce yet another OS into my life. I may try out a MacBook one of these days, but it seems like a lot of money to spend on something I don’t need.
I bring all of this up to say that, despite what you may think of the title of this article, I’m not just an Apple fan taking a cheap shot at Microsoft. I write this as a long-time Windows user who has gotten very used to disappointment over the last 10 years.
