A few months ago I purchased Macbook Air which I am yet to begin using as I am not able to leave my old windows laptop!!

  • Woohoo

If only someone at microsoft had the willingness and authority to start WindowsPhone/Mobile again, and run android apps as well (since Win10 is also getting that feature in the future), it'd be a great time for the mobile industry

best OS in the world, i hope they released again for mobile like old handheld phone windows XP but with nowdays hardware. anyone below me who says macOS is more stable and bla bla.. can that os run with 2gb ram and intel celeron series processor? windows 10 can run on that spec.

bunyip22, 28 Apr 2021Oh do stop dribbling rubbish. The big problem with macOS is... moreActually is 80% for Windows OS, 11% for Chrome OS and 9% for MacOS.
In 2020, Microsoft lost about 5% from their market share in 2019, from 85% to 80%. Mainly these percentages went to Chrome OS, who in 2020 surpass MacOS for the first time. This happened not because Chrome OS magically gotten better over night, but because some cheap and nice offerings for some Chromebooks (from Acer and Lenovo mainly). And many schools started buying those instead of Windows devices.
Still, even if MacOS counts only as 9%, those are usually targeted at professionals and media companies. Not so many average users have MacOS (also because of the price).

Windows 10 is resource hungry OS.. We need Google to make ChromeOS Better so we can replace Windows 10. Thank you. Microsoft can't make good things except Office.

The big problem with macOS is... moreOf course the market is so high...you know if you dll and install windows10 from their website counts as 1 user...but over 40% are cracking the win10...so its cheap on windows side thats why...and easy for offices
But the market for professionals the macOS is growing to over 27% while windows 10 is going down to 38%..the rest are the others OS
Remember macOS is done just by Apple..and just for the mac...Windows 10 are a lot of OEM

bunyip22, 28 Apr 2021Oh do stop dribbling rubbish. The big problem with macOS is... moreFor me as a editing old guy...that works almost 6-7 hours..windows is not stable because all those upgrades that are too often that crush apps and registry mess
macOS with affinity and other pro apps are smooth, no issues (the only issues are when they release first major macOS like October-November)..but with windows , we got issues almost every 2 months
And now with all of the apps going arm (M1 bla bla) is even better, far beyond...from financial stand point also
Here, windows 10 is used just for kids and their gaming, we went with our severs on Linux

Sdf, 28 Apr 2021Glad users still are using that 6 years old Windows 10... ... moreOh do stop dribbling rubbish. The big problem with macOS is that there are still too many professional programs (new and old) that aren't written to run on macs. Windows 10 is very stable, runs basically everything and the hardware is a lot cheaper with more options. It's little wonder Windows still accounts for nearly 90% of the global desktop market and apple is down around 10%

I feel exceptionally sorry for all of them. Nothing in my life had cost me more nerves in the last 30 years than Win. Utter trash, every single version.

But how many of them are companies accounts? For example I have a Microsoft account, but it's company Microsoft account. I deleted my personal account. Didn't need it anymore.
Anyway, Microsoft still is the undisputed leader in this sector (numbers wise). Chrome OS is second now (just surpass MacOS). But this last two are far behind Microsoft.

Microsoft is about cloud nowadays. macOS is far ahead and full of features
Microsoft tried 10s, failed...RT failed, windows mobile failed, now 10x it will failed...
They cant do OS anymore after bill gates
