ZNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes says that after more than two decades of being a dedicated Windows power user, and having invested tens of thousands of hours into mastering the platform, and run versions spanning from 3.0 to 8.1, He’s now all but given up on Windows.
Kingsley-Hughes says he’s devoted his 10,000 hours to mastering the Windows platform, plus thousands more, and got the point where there wasn’t a file, registry entry, or command line trick that he wasn’t familiar with. But now his day-to-day work is mostly done on a variety of OS X, iOS and Android systems, his primary work system a MacBook Pro, which he says in the ten months he’s had it has flawlessly done everything he’s asked of it, from running Microsoft Word to render 4K video, and by far, the most reliable system he’s owned, wich he partly attributes to the fact that it isn’t running Windows, and he sees nothing in Windows that excites him sufficiently to tempt him back into the Microsoft ecosystem, noting that he’s spent almost his entire adult working life involved with PCs, and the more PCs you are around, the more sick and dying PCs you encounter.”
He continues with a long and detailed critique of Windows shortcomings, that should be required reading for anyone wavering between whether to go Windows or OS X/iOS/Android.
