As a long time Apple -> Mac user, I've seen all sorts of ups and downs of the company.
Some like to vilify them but I do believe they deserve credit for moving the industry forward in many areas and in ways that few others were doing as well as they were.
That said, I really do feel like Apple is beginning to feel like a dead company walking. No I don't mean they are going belly up anytime soon, they are far too valuable a company for that to be likely. What I mean is they are loosing their core values and many of their core supporters and are well on their way to making the mistakes that has led to the loss of mindshare, market share and power in the market much in the same way as IBM and Microsoft before them. Both companies are still around and are still powerful, but neither has the power over the industry they once held.
I have personally been driven into the world of Hackintosh simply because Apple no longer makes products that meet my needs at any price. Simple as that.
At least there's signs the company realizes how they have screwed up to the point they are talking about unreleased products (something they almost never do).
Will I return to buying Apple products? Maybe... I really do get the ecosystem. It will all depend on Apple making products that I want to buy again and I'm not holding my breath.
For now, I use Windows for games as I've done for a long time (bootcamp and now Hackintosh).
I use Linux for my servers and casual web surfing use.
And MacOS for video and photo editing, and other media related tasks and for apple's proprietary services that I still enjoy using.
I consider myself platform agnostic these days. I've got problems with all the main OSes and nobody is perfect, forcing me to use them all for their strengths and avoid their weaknesses.
