Windows 10 destroyed my hard drive with its buggy system. Going back to Windows 7 and never gonna install that Crappy Spyware excuse for an OS ever again.
Im happy with my surface rt. No h/w issues experienced ever.
Windows is for power users. Mac - I haven't used ever so can't comment.

Computer science professor here and long time fan of Microsoft. I pre-ordered my Surface Book (i7 with NVIDIA GPU) from the Microsoft store and received it on the first day of availability (The 26th). Since then I have experienced every one of the problems cited on the web.
- The Hyper-V related video hashing.
- The audio pops and clicks.
- The freezes in mid use.
- The hangs when trying to resume from sleep.
- The delayed action of the track pad.
(I have tried to attach a sample video showing the display hashing)
I was willing to wait it out for more driver updates. Now, then pen - which started falling apart as soon as I got it - will only intermittently register with the screen. I realize now there are problems no software update can fix - I am not about to, for example, buy a new pen once a week.
There is so much to like about this laptop that it is very upsetting that I must return it for refund. I would love to keep it, but this is a tool and it isn't working out.
Cyba Cowboy, 05 Jan 2016And just recently there were multiple articles - with sources - claiming that Ubuntu (a Linux-... moreUbuntu is better for some purpose. but I use Debian for my work as it feels more stable than Ubuntu. but for a general user Ubuntu is the best Linux. still when looking at users with a computer we can see most of them use windows. when looking at Google analytics account of many websites you can see most of the desktop users are from windows. Linux is just fraction. and mobile users Android or iphone. Linux is good for work and servers. it's open source nature helps it to be the best for any servers and power users. and also hackers (Kali Linux)
And just recently there were multiple articles - with sources - claiming that Ubuntu (a Linux-based operating system) has at least a billion users... That's a tad bigger than Microsoft's ten million.
Of course, if you factor-in ALL Linux-based operating systems - Android being a prime example - the true number is in the low TENS of billions!

Mac is unable to keep up with this trend. visual studio is a development tool which now supports more platforms is a good thing. it is not a failure, and open sourcing something is too good for developers. .net and c# are same thing. do you know why iPad pro released, because surface pro 3 was able to capture a good share of sales from macbook air. but iPad pro was unable to keep up with surface pro 4 when it released. only ifans may buy it. and azure is a different business, for website hosting in the cloud, it sells well. it is like a computer where you can install an OS and use that computer to host websites or other internet related things. you have option to install many OS. when installing an OS it needs to be optimized for the virtual machine. so building a Linux distribution is a good move. but I think who want to use Linux on azure will do with other famous Linux distribution. so it's just a way to make more profit for Microsoft. windows will continue its growth no matter how much degrade you do, it is much better than Mac. when it comes to getting things done. I already seen the pain of a frnd who is a Mac user

I have seen some Mac fans trying to degrade it, but don't be ignorant have a look at someone who is actually using this device. my uncle has a surface book and it is great. from reviews I know sp4 is also great. there were some software issues which looked like hardware issues for first time users. but these are fixed in software updates

Its Windows Falling Era. To keep alive they made ASP.NET open source first. Then C#. Now they are developing a version of Visual Studio for Linux. And Microsoft is creating and using their own Linux platform to run Azure services.
Andro, 05 Jan 2016What will happen the day Google decides to make Android for desktop?Ok but you do realise that Chrome book which runs on Chrome OS have failed badly? No one buys that trash!
pritvi, 05 Jan 2016those were software issues. and most of them fixed in latest updatesI told you specifically it's NOT software issue! It's hardware, don't be ignorant! Go and check Amazon.com
Andro, 05 Jan 2016What will happen the day Google decides to make Android for desktop?i think they are working on it. If that is a better OS than windows, I will switch to it. I always want the best
Honest Realist, 05 Jan 2016*yawn* this convo clearly isnt going anywhere... G'day Mate :)well, that's good for you. better don't be jealous over the success of windows. if you think we buy windows as we are poor that's just a misconception. windows is useful for everyone including most basic users, to business users and ofcource gamers :D

I will continue to use windows and enjoy the best. meanwhile you can hug your beloved macbook with default i5 graphics(I know it can play most games at low settings) looking at emails

Secondly Fallout 4 can be blamed on Bethesda, can the Mac run it? Absolutely. You know how to use it? cute :) 1 million points to you. I'm assuming you know how to use a car? That doesn't mean you know what IT"S LIKE to use a Tesla on a regular basis. Even though you know how to drive it ;)
pritvi, 05 Jan 2016if that's true, than how can surface devices be a success. the reason why people buy Mac if th... moreYou need to check out reviews of Surface from people who actually bought! Look on amazon.com or any other sites, you will find people cursing MS for faulty manufacturing defects of Surfaces :P
Even after paying this much, you get faulty devices which is going to hurt as Software glitches can be resolved easily NOT hardware ones!
Look up how people are not getting worth, even the lid is cracked in some case. Surface sucked badly, MS couldn't live upto hype.
