Maintaining desktop linux is a full time job

Using windows is just completely different, I have to switch between windows/cygwin git cmd and windows subsystem for linux all the time

Mac is a reasonable choice for getting shit done, with someone else worrying about trivial shit like desktop cosmetics. Heavy lifting is done over ssh'd headless linux machines anyway. Too bad Apple went full retard with recent hardware though.

Someone needs to port Aqua to Linux. There's no other way this shit will ever get fixed.

This. However, maybe Linux DE's will get less shitty if there is no good x86 alternative. Unix devs went balls in for macbooks after they they switched to Intel.

It becomes inevitable enough when you just want a de-cluttered lifestyle with no worrying that something 'may' fuck up. There are hundreds of small ways that switching to the Apple ecosystem makes in a daily life that its hard to fully point out. I'm sure one can imagine the integration and seamlessness between something like a MacBook Pro, an iPhone, iCloud, Apple Music, AirPods, HomePod, CarPlay, Apple Pay, iPad, Apple watch with LTE and more. Apple have basically cornered every device and service that you'd use daily that has anything to do with tech or the internet. Convenience, design and ease of mind are unparalleled. Not to mention, anyone making any sort of premium accessory is basically only making it for Apple. From home alarm systems to camera shit for iPhones.

You all laughed at Apple's soldered SSD but its actually great. As you'd have iCloud backups automatically anyway to an offline server many times the size of your own local drive, you're able to retrieve any file within your system from there, or even do a full system rollback.

Crucially too, should your Mac get lost or stolen nobody will be able to obtain the information in your drive, firstly because its soldered and secondly if they really, really want to, even a fucking NAND dump wouldn't do much when all your shit is encrypted thanks to the APFS filesystem. Think about how iPhones are literally unhackable without the correct credentials. Same thing with a Mac. To me that's peace of mind. Unfortunatly however, any of my non-Mac laptops can just have the SATA SSD taken out, hooked up to a SATA3-USB connector and have all my files show up on a file explorer.
