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

@tdarb MacOS feels deliberately hobbled to me, and you have to pay to turn on the bits you need to work. Mac has it's own learning curve, too... especially coming from windows. The engineering (credit should go to its BSD base for this) and hardware control is done for mac's benefit, not ours. It's easier to have a maintenance structure built around one kind of os and device. You also have to agree to a lot of rules if you want to develop for mac that linux simply doesn't have.
