MacUser From Day 1 + Happily Ex Microsoft Employee Sick Of Apple Bugs
I have been a Mac bigot from 1984. I woud often be the only Mac user at an airport full of Windows PCs, running an OS I abhorred. I even recently left Microsoft after 3 years so am not beholden to them.
I now love using my only Apple devices ecosystem. But, for teh last 6-7 years that is what I have been crying out about... that Windows has gotten more stable (though still an OS I hate to use) while my Mac OS X Yosemite is worse than Window 2000 in terms of crashes.
I have to REGULARLY reboot the top of the line new MacBook Pro retina when (most likely due to discoveryd) it fails to use the Internet because of DNS. On the same WiFi network my iPhone 4S, 6+, iPad 3, even a couple of old Windows laptops, SHARP 80" TV, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, Roku 2, Vonage telephone, AT&T Microcell, ALL continue to operate perfectly.
Would I ever switch to Windows? Never. Would I silently tolerate Apple's ugly bugginess as I did when Apple was near death? Never.
For the last few years I have joked if Apple now hired engineers and quality assurance people from Redmond. While Microsoft still does not know user experience from nightmare experience, Apple's shoddy quality, from DoA phones and laptops to bug ridden updates, inconsisten UI in iOS, and flaky Yosemite are bringing it closer to Microsoft. Shame on Apple.
