A few years back I started using a Mac at home for general computing and editing my photographs. I didn't look back at my Windows computer. Windows 8 is sort of meh and the Mac hardware just works as opposed to my last PC that failed at least once every year.
Now that I've used my Mac for a few years I am discovering even more about it that's great. One of the things I've found that is also great about the Mac is that it has a unix shell. Unix shell implementations are the best around, no matter what you use on there. Windows took a very long time to catch up with Powershell. Even now I think bash and zsh are still the best around. Maybe not so much for their scripting languages which have a weird syntax, but more so because there's so much knowledge on the internet on how to use them.
