Personal preferences and technology

Choices are judged to much

Tech-preferences have become a topic everyone has an opinion on. Usually, this opinion is rather extreme.

The "Anroid vs iOS" debate is the prime examples for this.

A discussion about which operating system and manufacturer are the best has become everything, but a discussion. It never even had the potential to be any kind of rational debate in the first place.

All this has cause nothing, but a lot of absurdly unnecessary hatred and wasted time.

Judge, but not by preference

Yes, you sometimes should reminde people that their choice on using, e. g. Windows, is quite poor.

But you should not reason with "Linux has more customizability" or "MacOS is more stable and mature". Instead, focus on, for example, how Microsoft is collecting data with Windows or how Windows is a monopoly in the end-user operating system market.

And still, respect that people use a certain piece of technology. There are many individuals who could argue why Android fits them better than iOS, their choice is not made on money and what they can afford.

The same can be said about virtually any other choice.

Remember that we all are different people with different preferences and that the choices you make are not the only proper choices.
