10 years ago I switched from Windows to OS X and blogged about the experience.
I was a faithful Dell/Windows guy for many years, but then I got my first digital camera. I plugged it in and got the following dialog box:
"What would you like Windows to do? (a) Open camera in Photoshop (b) Open in Windows Fax Viewer"
Sigh. I ordered my Powerbook G4 that day. It was like manna from heaven. From the blog at the time: “iLife is kind of boring. Plug in camera. Look at pictures.” It just worked.
Fast forward 10 years and it’s a completely different story. iPhoto is nearly unusable. iTunes *is* unusable. My Mac & iPhone are just pretty ways to get to Google services. I legitimately can’t figure out how to use iOS7. I haven’t had a design get in my way since Windows. I have to think very hard to use my phone now, and I’m not interested in that. Couple that with unfixable purple spots on my camera lens, a defective battery, and a company that wants $300 to fix it and it’s time to go.
Android here I come.
I’ve found a lack of blogging of technical people who switched iOS to Android with recent operating systems (iOS 7 to Android 4.4) so I’ll be blogging the experiences here.
Wish me luck!
