But Apple has been sucking the most lately:
Lots of supporting links there. And I don't get the constant claims that Apple has better hardware. It's all the same junk everybody else uses with a premium price. Modern Apple equipment on the high end doesn't even field a competitive GPU for the price range they put it in. Why don't they have anything equivalent to yester-year's high end gaming card, the GTX 970, which is the minimum recommended for Oculus Rift development?
Both Linux and Windows have been stepping up their game lately. Steam's pushing the games on Linux and Linux is handling laptops better now than it ever has. Windows is finally learning to write competent OSes without annihilating performance with 20 years of legacy code dead weight they refuse to let go of and they've finally figured that pissing off web developer for over a decade wasn't doing them any favors in the long run. Apple's primary pro argument, on the other hand, is completely fictional at this point. The OS is de-evolving into an underperforming bug-ridden mess. Their browser is stagnant. Their mobile platform, which is a pain in the ass, can only be developed for on a Mac (how desperate is that?). They don't have the best phones. They don't have the best laptops. Their desktops are a joke for the price you pay for them. I still enjoy the iPad experience more than the Android tablet experience but neither are particularly useful to me since I acquired a Yoga 2 Pro all-in-one that Apple doesn't make, especially not in orange.
I hate to admit it as I always thought of him as an overrated asshole with exceptionally good PR but Apple clearly needed Steve Jobs to kick them in the ass because they are in a slow motion faceplant right now. What's their take on all-in-ones? How do they rate on the ultrabook comparisons? What's their entry into the VR and AR markets? Nada. Zip. Zilch. And their core software lines are in decline as they focus on firing blanks at the next big thing. Their bottom line is no longer tricking Apple fans into paying too much for high quality gear. It's convincing them mediocre gear made by the same Chinese prison-orphan-labor as everybody else's gear is high quality.
