Micro USB is literal garbage that dies after 200 uses. USB C is at least a tiny bit more durable.

USB C is the superior port. Can't wait for it to take over all our lives.

USB-C charges shit faster than micro USB and transfers data faster than SATA.

Never you Philistine. The day all major devices AND desktops/laptops use USB C and only USB C will be a good day indeed. USB C

I will admit that I use a mechanical keyboard(DasKeyboard). But not really because its "better". I actually learned to touch type properly in school. Combine that with playing the piano professionally...I tend to type quite a bit of downward pressure. The longer key travel and overall sturdiness of a mechanical keyboard feels better to me. I used membrane keyboards for years with no issue.

But I dont miss tube monitors at all.

It's likely that USB-C will become the dominant (if not the only) port on most devices. It's all-around a better connector than Micro, especially for devices that need to be hotswapped. Micro's design is harder to plug in and isn't nearly as durable.

I don't really care how many uses they are rated for.
The problem is my phones are outliving the charging ports.
Micro usb also had issues, but the lock mechanism failed on the cable, not the port (at least in my experience).
Usb C fails on the port.
At this point, I would rather have a VGA style screw it down system than this current bullshit, it is so frustrating to use.

Analog audio isn't a part of the USB-C standard. Anything that carries analog audio over USB-C is deviating from the standard and cannot be guaranteed to be compatible with any other devices.

in fairness some cables aren't designed for many mating cycles, a lot of board to board connectors are barely rated for 50 cycles. SATA is intended to be plug in once and that's that, if your drive is hot swapping it's probably got a different mount in the first place.
