"ItS cHeApEr tO bUiLd tHe Pc YoUr SelF"
Ahaha I'm one of those people. I build my pc around march... The specs I have in mine would cost me probably 300$+ more dollars if I bought it pre-built.
I loved building my pc tbh it was a great first time experience besides the CPU fan. It was a B.... to put on but after 4 hours I finally got it on...
I'm going to Uni to study computer engineering.

I tried Windows 10 inside OS X by running it virtually. I like that it's now fluid and everything is easy to access, it's visually pleasing as well but I don't like it enough to actually pay for it when I have OS X for free and it updates annually. I'm too involved in Apple's ecosystem to just leave especially that there's nothing notable enough for me to leave Mac os x behind but I'm impressed with Windows 10, they have come a long way.

In my old job, I had three Macs, one ran only Mac OS. Another one had Mac OS and Windows 10, and the 3rd one had Mac OS and Linux (I didn't use it much though.)

I still think that each OS has its pros, make a bootcamp and don't worry about leaving Mac.

I tried my best to "embrace" Windows 10 but it did not stop giving me reasons not to. It's like putting lipstick on a pig, the UI is so weird looking, it's bloated to the core and not unified in any sort of way, it nags, a lot and I had to disable a bunch of things just to stop the damn nagging whenever i'm accomplishing a system task. I only needed it to play PUBG on my desktop because emulators don't work well on Mac OS X but yeah, even that didn't work because the OS kept forcing updates I didn't ask for and it stayed "downloading" for 3 hours only to give me download error at the end and that's a download from Microsoft servers!! So, instead of liking Windows 10 I learned to love Mac OS X Mojave twice as much for being an option.

Windows has evolved. Time and reality has forced MS to become what they did not want to be. There was a reason the counterculture spawned Mac, and a lot of it had to do with the failings of MS. So MS evolved and morphed into the thing of beauty they are now. I grew up hacking '95. '97, and XP. The almost infinite security breaches seemed intentional. As the Mac OS has become more widely accepted and used by more powerful and wealthy targets, it has also experienced a lot of the same things MS did.

They both try to play nice with each other now, but the security and complexity of both systems are so rich that they have a lot of trouble tripping over each other. And you can forget about it if your system has any performance issues. You will crash and burn.

Your best option is to choose a side and get comfortable with your choice. But never forget the other side is just as powerful and always an option. I chose Windows for a lot of reasons, but mostly because I knew they finally fixed the car that used to break down every 10 miles. It works flawlessly for me now. I still peek at Mac every so often just to keep my finger in that pie, but it holds no gleaming advantage. It is just the other side of the same coin.
