I use both Windows and Mac.

My Hyper Plan product is also cross platform, Windows and Mac. In case anyone is interested, visitors to the http://www.hyperplan.com website breakdown as follows:

Windows: 56%
Mac: 27%
other: 17% (Linux, mobile etc)

I have 6 computers in the house. Two run Windows 7, the rest Linux Mint. I rarely use the Windows machines, one laptop and one desktop, only when I need to write a letter or some such (WordPerfect RuLeZ). Windows was a much bigger part of my life before I retired (I used to be a lawyer).

My outliner is NoteCase Pro, which runs on Windows, OS X, and multiple flavors of Li/Unix (full disclosure, I assist in NC Pro’s development).

Treepad Biz works just fine for me, for every note & outline task I need; and most word processing tasks as well. It’s old, hasn’t been updated in ages, but it still works great. I use windows, exclusively, because TP is a windows-only program and so is just about everything else that I use. Especially now that their hardware lags so far behind windows machines and costs so much more, that’s probably not going to change.

There’s a reason that the Mac has only 6% market share. Obviously, the Mac works fine for those who still use it, but not for me.

Windows and Android. I may eventually give Linux a shot, depending on where Microsoft ends up taking Windows 10, but for now I’ll stick with those two.

I bought a Mac laptop some years back specifically to give OS-X a serious try and found it wanting in ways that made it almost unusable for much of what I do.  Yes, things just work, and they work very well, as long as what you want to do is within the limits of what Apple designed into it. But if you need a little more, or something a little different, it often isn’t available, whereas you can almost always find some kind of acceptable solution in the far more diverse Windows software ecosystem.

As a onetime ECCO Pro user, I like the general idea of InfoQube and have looked at it (I even checked out the latest version after reading PPL’s original post in this thread), but find it much more complicated than I’m willing to devote the effort to learn, at least for now. I also find it hard to use on a high-res monitor.

I am system-agnostic, having worked in applications development and support on different IT systems (including mainframes. minis, MACs, micros, PCs, thin client systems and even NC systems), for scientific, business and financial systems.
Nowadays, for desktop technology, I exclusively support and use Windows-based systems and applications, having formerly supported/used Appe/Mac systems (and applications) a great deal and Linux just a little (for research).

My work role necessitates that I take an objective approach to the use of technology, focusing on that technology which can be definitively shown to meet client requirements at the optimum cost-effectiveness for clients’ purchase/use. This approach is really only relevant where the selection of IT needs to ultimately be a rational business decision - as opposed to being (say) an ideological bias/policy or technical decision.

I have been a reader of, and occasional contributor to this forum for several years as it seems to have a relatively even spread across the main desktop OSes, though obviously the scope/experience of users who post here may sometimes necessarily be narrow - e.g., limited to (say) typically one or two OSes at most. Their experiences are important to me thuigh , as I am very interested in the use of PIMs and learning of users’ different real-world experiences with them and any mistakes they may have made along the way.
