    I mean the hardware can be pricy but there’s basically none of this in macOS.

      Don’t apple products require you to sign in with an apple id to use them together?

        And every OS update tries to dark-pattern trick you into enabling iCloud for all your services. And System Settings constantly nag you about setting up Apple Pay or other Apple services you aren’t using. Apple has less ads, but they still have nagware traps all over the place. They also place the free tier of iCloud just big enough to get you hooked, and just small enough you’ll overflow it sooner than later. For most consumers, paying $2/mon to make the nag go away is easier than finding out why they are running out of storage. Annnd…profit.

        I suppose if you want to use their cloud features.

        But I mean they don’t plaster nags and ads over core OS features.

        I’m not necessarily advocating buying Macs but the OS itself is experiencing less enshittification.
