I usually recommend to people wanting a new PC that they look at Windows offerings.

Good grief, why?

I really despise the "feel" of Windows, especially Windows 10+. I remotely log into a Windows 7 machine, so that's somewhat tolerable, but the Windows 10 machine I log in from spends waaaaay too many processor cycles trying to be my friend. It really gets my goat when I return from lunch to see it's timed out with a pretty picture, then it takes forever to bring up the login dialogue and while it's grinding that out it still has time to ask me "did you like that pretty picture? would you like to see more?"

No, you stupid tool. I am trying to work. I do not need a relationship with you. You are a tool, and so are all the product developers at Microsoft.

I will admit Apple does a little of this too, but it's mostly confined to the software update process. For the rest, it just gets out of the way and lets me work.
