    All my android and my win10 products will be replaced to christmas with apple products .. Not quite sure if i like this move or not:D But my girlfriend bought the 2 complete apple packages as christmas present for us:D (2 watches , 2 iphone6s, 1 ipad , a new 15" macbook )
    She got bored of my daily drama about how cool win10 is and then 10 minutes later how horrible it is..

    Running on Mac and Linux. I do use Windows on day job and manage windows servers as well, but as for personal use I will not turn to Windows. Last time I used Windows on personal computer was when I was 12 years younger :D

    Previously, I had a notebook, but it burned me, so I had to buy a PC and I am extremely satisfied

    I use both so I chose other.

    My Mac is out of commission for now, have to get a few parts for it and before anyone asks yes I know how to repair Mac's. Otherwise my Mac would be my coding laptop and my PC for gaming/streaming. Unfortunately, my PC is coding and gaming/streaming which I just built a new PC so I can handle more games for my live stream.

    Overall Mac has a learning curve which is true but if your tech savvy you get passed that curve within a month or less. PC's can get bogged down but with my new setup I went with an SSD boot drive which has kept my PC from starting slow and my secondary drive is HDD so it loads programs from it and only have to defrag after I install a new program because I store all my coding on an external so I don't have to keep accessing my HDD forcing it to write to new blocks.

    Phew think I'm done.

    I am a PC guy as well. I use MacOS X 10.11 sometimes (virtualized) for certain things, but I am mostly on Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Howewer, I can`t understand why there is a war between both, when they are meant for different usages. Windows is the jack-off-all-trades, with excellent softwares for pretty much everything and gaming capabilities. Mac, on the other hand, lacks a wide variety of softwares, but all the few ones are extremely decent (sometimes better than the Windows counterpart). So, for professional usage, Mac kinda "wins". And MacOS rarely crashes, making it the perfect companion for a developer. The layout by itself is less distractive, and kinda helps when you can`t concentrate very well. For general usage, Windows wins easily. For certain usages (programming, video editing, audio editing and a few more things) Mac wins. BUT, certain Linux distributions do the same thing for free, allowing you to enjoy some of these "MACish" features on a normal PC. Still, video and audio editing are definitely better on Macs. Linux unfortunately lacks some decent audio-visual softwares.
    Turns out that it is all about personal preference.

    I use both. But Macs seem to hold up better and be more usable when they get older.
