I think it’s popular now to criticise Apple, and particularly Macs, but there’s one simple reason that I switched to Macs and have been using them ever since:
I was tired of spending time on my computer working on my operating system instead of working on my projects.
Do read: 25 Years to Mac – How Ubuntu Pushed Me Away from the PC. I do go back to Ubuntu every now and then in Virtual Machines, but it doesn’t come close. And Windows is not *nix, so that’s never an option.
I think what Google should have done was build their own version of Linux, just like they built Android inspired from iOS. I bet lots and lots of folks would have paid money for a stable, usable, friendly & Googley Linux. And stuff like their Pixel laptop could’ve done more than just run a browser.
