"ding ding" FIGHT !
I won't ever buy a mac book again because of that.MacBook Pro with touch bar
there is an escape functionAny UNIX. Preferrably Linux (Gentoo, Debian) or FreeBSD.
For everyday use, MacOS X can sometimes be more handy.
For phones I haven't made up my mind yet. I've never used iOS, but I believe it would be too limiting for my taste. Even tough Android is too chaotic for my taste, it's probably still better. Generally, both suck.
When I happen to use somebody's computer with Windows, there is nothing I could do other than start a browser. So limited...

Who came up with the idea of removing the escape key? Such keyboard is unusable for me.
I hate how their mobile devices lack file managers, so you need relevant apps to even be able to recover data, and the lack of customisation on Apple devices makes them not very accessible. For instance, you can only swipe in one direction to close Safari tabs compared with being able to swipe two ways on Chrome for the same function. You have to us a touch screen for an iPad, which is not ergonomic. They are not designing iOS with a mouse in mind, ever. The peripherals they make aren't very helpful for left handed users as well.I voted other, because my dream machine runs on OpenSUSE! I don't like Windows because too many updates and freezeups. I don't like Apple because, being used to Windows, I tried doing stuff on the Apple OS and it just seemed backwards to me. You can't modify your own computer, or upgrade it. You're dependent on the Apple store if anything malfunctions, and from what I understand, it's not cheap. I'm not fond of the Apple corporation, in general. I actually see Microsoft as the lesser of evils, not that I'm a huge fan of microsoft either, but at least with initiatives like offering more open source options and teaming with Linux. Also MS has made VS available for Mac whereas the only way you can program in swift: ie for iphones is to either get a mac, or find a workaround with a virtual machine. I think that's pretty crappy for a company to do. My biggest beef with Apple products is that they are incredibly overpriced just to be overpriced and market to elitist snobs that want something to make them feel accomplished. Otherwise there is absolutely no reason for a computer to cost that much. Considering, like I stated before, an end user, even one experienced in repairing computers is usually unable to upgrade/repair their own computer, the cost of owning one is likely much higher than the cost of owning a PC. Plus, Apple makes about $400,000 per employee, which is far higher than most companies. So I really don't feel right buying something that might cost me a couple hundred more than any competitor just so some obscenely wealthy set of executives can underpay their staffs and buy third seasonal home.
I like physical keys because I can feel them with touch without looking.there is an escape function
it's a part of the touch bar
theses 2 words describe touch bar perfectlyI like physical keys because I can feel them with touch without looking.
I don't want to need to look at the keyboard to press escape. I use it as a fast way to cancel something and also for text editing in vim. If I have to look it's no longer fast. Also, what appears in the touch bar is context sensitive and my experience tells me it won't always be what I expect (sometimes there will be no escape key when I want it).
