When I look back at those, few, days I had the Windows computer, I find what irked me the most wasn’t the Windows operating system or anything else like that — it was the screen! My Mac here isn’t even a Retina, but there’s a huge difference! Also, when I uploaded my photos and did the editing on the other computer, I found the colours seemed all washed out. I even tried to calibrate the screen, which I find difficult, but it didn’t help. Now when I look at the few pictures I did, the colours seem overly saturated because of this. That was the main thing that took away from the whole experience, and I doubt I could have gotten used to it.
Apart from that, I think I could go either way. I missed my favourite app, DayOne, but found one for Windows that worked really well. Found it in GitHub — a site that really scares me because I don’t understand anything in there. The unknown is always scary, huh?! 🙂 Managed to download and install it. Of course, it didn’t look as neat as DayOne, but still … it got the job done, by way of updating DayOne on my other devices.
When the day comes, and I have to get a new one … I just don’t know. One thing’s for sure … I’ll focus on the screen a lot more before I make any decision. This Mac — named Hadassah — seems to have a life of its own, that I have no control over. It was acting up so badly, and I’m not exaggerating here, so I expected it to give up its breath any minute — and after that debacle it’s been working flawlessly*. Still extremely slow, though … nothing’s changed there. Not slow on the web, but to do stuff, like to open the Finder or a programme … that takes ages. Just a matter of being patient … and here’s a picture of our cat 🙂
He had a bad day, yesterday, because of a soggy, low pressure system that moved in on us. Spent most of his day tucked in, underneath my desk here. He’s our own barometer.
*UPDATE: I think I jinxed it when I wrote that. It has started again … rebooting, the flickering boxes.
