Needs a third option... I don't care either way, because I'll load up Linux 😀
I hate mac, although I can acknowledge that apple builds a really good and working ecosystem. It is vendor lock at its finest of course, but it is rather good quality from what I hear.
Windows on the other hand is just shit.
I really really LOVE the FOSS community :)
@redstarfish I hate Windows, but I hate Mac with a passion.
@redstarfish I'm not good at hating anything, but Windows is the system I just don't care for. Mac is worse, it's that system you loved, and it betrayed you.. it's personal
@redstarfish You're one of the black-or-white kind of people, right? 😉
Instead, it always depends on the set of requirements you need to address.
For *any* given tool I can find use-cases & requirements where this tool is be the best choice.
I can find positive as well as negative aspects for pretty much any tool, OS, ...
Such #surveys promote hated or at least a very narrow picture of the world.
Stop this bullshit, please.
I'm perfectly fine with being an 'immature' 60 year old who is sick of wasting time with the inbuilt constraints imposed by practices of ingrained corporate, time-wasting greed.
I always feel like a backstreet gutter whore whenever I take money to work with either of those companies.
I'm resolved to never do it again.
I have no plans to stop hating on corporations any time soon. They are not people. Only legally defined greed machines.
@redstarfish I don't really really hate either. But I'm pretty annoyed with people who turn software use into religions >:(
@redstarfish I really don't see either of them as remotely usable. Mac is more useful to me as a Unix, but lock-in and it's pushing the app store harder and harder makes it not worth using ideologically.
Windows isn't useful for more practical reasons (difficulty to access common power user utilities) on top of its outright admission of cooperating with mass surveilance and vendor lock-in.
Both these platforms are crawling towards requiring proprietary app stores, too
@redstarfish After using both, I prefer Mac, but getting a Mac was never a consideration for myself. Window's nonsense is what drove me to Linux and then FOSS, though
MacOS X on the other hand, is a pile of non-sense controlled by Apple, which likes to have full-control on the user's choice of everything.
i don't care that much about Mac, but i don't like Windows. WHat should i choose if "hate" is overkill for me?
I don't hate Mac OS, but the hardware costs/lack of variety made me want to try Linux, which I now like much better due to its openness and modularity.
@redstarfish honestly a bit surprised
