macOS certainly has issues but MY GOODNESS is it ever a world of difference once you:

- use any Linux DE for a long stretch of time
- switch back to macOS

I have yet to find any all-encompassing Linux "system" that feels as well thought out as macOS. Linux is certainly superior in terms of user control at a deeper level, but more experience is needed to tap into those "features".

Design, ease-of-use and attention to detail cannot be overlooked. macOS just does this better.

Following up on this discussion, I decided to jot down my quick thoughts about the "Linux desktop" overall:

"The Linux Desktop is Hard to Love"


@tdarb I agree. I tend to use Linux on a desktop and macOS on a laptop. Linux on my desktop is mostly flawless once I've set it up. But I've had to many minor issues with Linux on a laptop that cost me time/money. I know when I open the lid of my macbook air, everything will be there and I can start working. And that's really the deciding factor for me.
