Perhaps it is flamebait, but it brings up an interesting (to me) question. At this stage of the game, Apple makes most of its money off of its mobile devices. Sure, it still sells Macs - and people still like and buy them. But .....
Yep a bit of flamebait but the truth is a very large numbers of web developers
work on a Mac and the result is a Mac is a very pleasurable device for web content.
The current versions have AC WiFi and a GigE hard wire network links that
allow developers to push or pull source as fast as any.
Same is true for consumer web surfing where MAC retina seems to be
the touchstone for content.
I have a modern HiDPI display with a 6th Generation Intel® Core i7 Processor and
darn nice graphics driving 3200 x 1800 IPS but applications and font rendering flat out suck
at times on Win10. I should note that Win10 has improvements but... it ain't all soup yet.
Applications I need and want are on the naughty list for HiDPI, you can see one such
list here: http://www.eizoglobal.com/supp...
I looked at the history and many of these applications also fell flat when Apple came out
with retina displays and a year+ later fixed thing.
I did try a modest Intel® Core i7 system as a server and sent it back because it kept dying.
One would have thought that Intel could make a motherboard that ran fine with a new i7
but for many months it was a mystery. I will grab another in a couple months -- while it
worked it was fast as stink so I still want one but I want one that works. BTW: The fix sounds real
so I am shopping again.
Windows 10 is another consideration. Win10 revived a couple old laptops where graphics
drivers and thermal power management stunk on Linux.
Then there is the secret sauce in all new generation BIOS to boot 6th generation processors.
Yes I want an update but there are more moving parts being juggled than is easy to count.
I wonder if others can see any clues in macO sSierra (now in beta).
I forgot the FBI and other TLA's out there.... I wonder what secret demands have been made
