My primary computer is a Windows 8.1 Pro PC but I’ve had to pack it away in storage for a few weeks so I’ve been using a Macbook Air running Mac OS X Yosemite. And this is the thing: I like Yosemite. I know I’ve just committed anathema by some PC standards, but I don’t have any beef against Apple.
I think the operating system is snappy, the graphical user interface is attractive and apps made for Mac are just more enjoyable to use than their PC counterparts. The Adobe suite of tools is a good example of this.
