Good summary of YOUR use case and preferences.
My experiences with Linux and Windows pale beside my experience with OSX. Since my career spans the pre-PC era until now, I won’t belabor you with the details, but will say OSX is the best thing I’ve used in 45 years. Its UNIX underpinnings are also pretty comforting and I like the fact that professionals maintain all of it, not disconnected developers. I think it makes for a more stable product.
Good for you, though… good you know what you want, need, and prefer. So glad we all have choices these days, and pretty good ones at that, no matter which way we go.
