'I surprisingly do not hate the new MacBook Pro running Windows 10'

Daniel Rubino tried Apple's new MacBook Pro running Windows 10 and... didn't hate it. From Windows Central:

In a recent tutorial, I demonstrated how easy it is to install Windows 10 on a new MacBook Pro. While many people are still tied to Apple's ecosystem ergo macOS there's no reason why users can dip their toe into the world of Microsoft and dual-booting with Windows 10.How is using a late-2016 13-inch MacBook Pro with Redmond's latest and greatest OS? I've been moonlighting with the controversial laptop for a few weeks now to share my perspective as a dedicated Windows user. Here is what I've learned!

Daniel not only marinates in Windows, he changes laptops as often as some of us get fresh cups of coffee. That makes his perspective both different and valuable.

Give his review a read and let me know what you think!

  • I think he changes laptops so frequently because there are so many to choose from. Don't get me wrong, that is both a good and bad thing. Good in that you have so many choices. You don't have to accept the model one company tries to make for everyone. Bad in that it is hard to build an OS that has to support so many different configurations. In my not-so-humble opinion that is a major reason why macOS "feels" so much more stable and integrated. Sent from the iMore App
  • After the Anniversary update, windows 10 lag has gone down be almost 70% (for me) and MS says after the creators update it will be even more smoother! but still its your choice, apple or mac, Depends on your taste of choice.
  • Saying that Windows 10 is a better OS just because it has touchscreen support, is like saying one car is better than another car because it has a built-in SatNav, ignoring all the other aspects of the car. They're both great operating systems. As for "no issues with stability", that's your experience. I've definitely experienced some issues on Windows 10, fairly minor ones but they are there.
  • I have touchscreen laptop and barely use the touchscreen. When I look around in coffee shops, libraries, school and work I rarely see anyone one with a 2 in 1 using the touchscreen or tablet/tent mode. With that said, I know that's mainly everyday users I encounter and folks with proprietary software for medical, art etc and people like you who prefer the touchscreen.

  • I don't detest Windows 10, but it does seem silly putting it on a Mac as the main OS, since you're losing out on Mac-specific features, such as trackpad gestures (I couldn't live without these), Touch Bar, shortcuts to stuff like Mission Control.
  • I have a mac & run windows on a virtual machine. Not the bestest experience, but pretty close. Sent from the iMore App
