Re: One reason to stay with Windows - Outlook
I have tried Linux. I can get most things to work, but have yet to find a client email package that fully supports Office 365. I'd be interested to know if anyone has found one - I currently have 6 different O365 accounts and 4 others which I can display within my Outlook (Office 2019 on Windows 10) client.
Well, Evolution works OK and supports Exchange and MS365, and the fact that it's essentially a clone of Outlook 97 means it works mostly like the original. Still, it looks and feels like a program from the '90s, and not in a good way.
But yes, finding a good email client has become more challenging, even on Windows. Recent incarnations of Outlook became worse in terms of usability and reliability, and while there are alternatives neither one is particularly great (for example, Thunderbird's UX is horrible, eMClient is buggy, Windows Mail is even more basic than Outlook Express of the old days, Mailbird lacks some features and last time I tried couldn't handle large email accounts without crashing). So while the Windows alternatives to Outlook may look more modern, they aren't necessarily better than what's available on Linux.
Personally, while I use all of the three platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) I do all my day-to-day stuff on macOS. Apple Mail and Calendar (which are part of macOS) work absolutely fine despite using multiple, very large mailboxes with 10's of thousands of emails in them (don't ask!). If I wanted I could use Microsoft Office (or MS365) apps as well, since it's a MS supported platform.
