The thing with Apple is that you can at least disable most of the annoying and/or risky things. Don't want keychain in iCloud (which I don't)? Fine, don't allow it. Don't want iMessage mirrored? Untick the box, done.

In addition, it tends to default to safe - and yet, it keeps working without any fuss.

If you want to fight on a daily basis with updates and security checks because you cannot trust the machine, you have a need to justify your existence and do not want to interface with anything else on the planet, OK, use Windows.

For anything else, there's MacOS and Linux.
