Mac or PC?

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to see what people prefer to use for web development. I currently have PC but I'm considering switching to Mac. Would it be a good switch or should I keep my PC?

Thanks!

I would do a table with a list of apps/ programs that you will be using for web designing and compare/ contrast if MacOS or Windows OS is the way to go). Keep in mind that you are now locked down (from a financial perspective) to stick with that platform because you have purchased software through either Windows OS or MacOS.

You already own a PC, that you have invested money on so, I would just stick to that OS (Stick to what you already know...). That is just my personal opinion although I am on a Mac...

P.S. Try before you buy 😉 apps...

IMHO, I believe that if you are a programmer, a Linux computer is the best option. It is open sourced and much more customizable.
