Dark mode is lush, core audio is better. But it's whatever you prefer and completely subjective. I don't really use the Apple ecosystem, I have an android phone since the hardware is better (like PCs and why a Hack is so appealing to me running mac OS on upgradeable hardware). However, for me there isn't really a lot of difference at all between iOS and Android, whereas Win 10 still has a fair bit of catching up to do for me in regards to desktop systems.
Yeah, as far as aesthetics and general OS usage go, macOS is still better. I do prefer Finder to Windows Explorer too.

I'm sure it'll get better over the years, but macOS's Metal is my big thing they have to work out. Graphically, apps like Reaper, Ableton Live, Cubase/Nuendo all operate much more smoothly on Windows with FAR fewer graphical hangups. Zooming and session navigation is so much more smooth.

First party apps on macOS like FCPX and Logic run super smoothly, but that's because Metal is the only visual rendering system they have to bother with I'm sure.

I also have been doing a lot of remote work recently and I use Discord for real-time collaboration with clients. Screen sharing is unusable on macOS because there is no Metal support for Discord on macOS, but works very smoothly on Windows.

So that's what's keeping me on Windows instead of macOS right now. Maybe it'll change in the future?!
