I got my first Apple (2nd computer) back in '84. In '85 bought my first IBM PC... and ever since have had both Macs and PC my whole life. In the past few years I have swayed more to the Mac side due to those items you describe, particularly the ecosphere of Apple, as well as XCode being only available on OSX.
While there are many pros/cons to both, I'm not sure if I would give up on one side or the other completely. Just wish all developers offered cross platform software under the same license.
