Apple and Windows users have been divided for years. However, loyal Apple users are starting to switch to Windows products because of Apple’s poor recent launches. For example, many users were left disappointed with the new MacBook Air.
There are several differences between Apple and Windows operating systems. The two operating systems often feel like different languages with their distinguishable keyboard shortcuts and applications.
Here are a few reasons why you might consider changing to Windows.
Microsoft equivalent of Apple apps
If you are a fan of the classic Apple apps, you can find almost identical substitutes for most applications on Windows. Use Microsoft Word instead of Pages, Excel instead of Numbers, Skype instead of Facetime and One Drive over iCloud.
The majority of apps are coded for Windows first
Most apps are coded for a PC and then ported to Apple later. Often, Mac users are left waiting months for the macOS version to arrive, and it usually has a few restricted features anyway.
Windows is more flexible
Apple products are designed to be easy to use and, as a result, they lack the customisation and control of a PC. You can change your Windows PC to reflect your needs and tastes with the built-in customisation tools.
If this is something that is required for either leisure or business, then you may want to consider selling your MacBook and investing in the latest Windows product to embrace your inner creative.
Updates are no longer slow
Windows updates are known for being tedious. They happen at the worst of times, and there is nothing you can do to stop them once they have started. Update your PC as soon as an update is available to avoid this.
Much more choice from a hardware perspective
There are far more options for Windows hardware. Apple continues to hit the same issues year after year, especially with their infamous broken keyboards. However, Windows is only on the rise with the launch of the Surface Laptop 2 and Huawei’s Next-Generation Matebook.
There are negatives to Windows
Of course, there are some negatives to Windows and a few kinks with their products that could be straightened out. For example, there is an issue with their older programmes and games’ compatibility on more recent Windows OS.
Windows products are unpredictable. For example, when Windows Defender goes through any files added and installed, it also causes disk performance degradation.
Finally, Microsoft’s design language is messy and inconsistent. There is no easy way to understand it or where it should be implemented.
