I love using accordance on my pc, works really well. For me it has to be pc, the cost of a MAC is absurd for me and unjustifiable, so leaves only one option :)

I was in IT for many years, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, MCP, managed a bunch of Microsoft servers, databases, hundreds of desktops, etc.  With time, I moved more into software development.  I switched to the Mac after OS X came out around 2002 or so, because it allowed me to use a lot of the Unix tools that I required to work easily with the Linux boxes I was integrating with, while using a highly refined and stable UI.  Fifteen years later, I couldn't imagine using anything but a Mac for my daily driver.  I still occasionally spend time on Windows and Linux boxes, but that's the exception, and usually tests my patience and my blood pressure.  

 

My time is valuable to me — a lot more valuable than the cost of an infrequent purchase of a new machine.  It works, it's efficient, it's stable, it doesn't require the level of headaches and maintenance that Windows boxes still require, and I like the software that runs well on it.  I've also seen folks replace their Windows PCs three times in the time that I keep one of my Macs.  In the end, to each their own, but for me, it's a Mac.  

 

All that said, it sounds like purely for Accordance, you have the best of all options — the ability to choose based on any criteria you want, as Accordance seems to have feature parity across platforms and works well in both!

This is one thing I have considered also. I tend to keep machines a while but I have wondered which actually last longer in practical terms. I have had my Mac since 2009 but I've bought PCs in the intervening time - though not because they wore ought except in one case and that machine was really old. PCs seem to be more upgradeable and configurable which allows one to spread out the purchases but you can also get caught out by something not being quite as upgradeable as you like. And of course upgrades mean the thing wasn't as cheap as it was originally.

 

But honestly if all the software I needed ran on Linux (see your point above on Unix tools which are just so much nicer to use)  I'd probably ditch both OSX and Windows. In fact I need to look at that again as the world has moved on (to quote Sai King) a bit.

 

Thx

And may you have twice the number.

 

 

And now having dragged this well away from the OP question, I'll make it clear that this is not a plea for a Dark Tower module :)
