So, my big beef with moving to Windows is that in my experience, Windows still sucks at serious multitasking. I constantly run like 10 apps at once in OS X and each one feels like it is the only task running- even when something is tracking in the BG and a render is pegging all the processors in the BG, it’s still fluid and rock solid.
That has not been my experience in Windows, and I believe it’s due to the client/server nature of OS X vs the way Windows handles tasks and processes. Am I wrong? Do people have good experiences doing an absurd number of things at the same time in Windows?
This is how my brain works, so maybe I am in a minority and it’s not as big a deal to others out there.
I do however, hate the way Apple does video cards and drivers for said cards. The lack of selection and price hikes are ridiculous. So that would be better on the windows side.
[B]Also, this is absolutely not a start-a-mac-vs-pc-fight post- I have seriously considered moving to Windows for some time for hardware reasons and a handful of software ones.
Also, I should mention that I have built PCs for years and very seriously know my way around Windows, so it’s not like I’m just ignorant about it, but I do use it way less than OS X, thus the question.
