    But Sketch...and iMessage... and space bar to preview... and force tack trackpads...

    You have me in your leash for now, Apple.

      I've been wanting something like the Touch Bar since the Optimus Maximus (wiki link) keyboard back in the day. Sketch, Sierra, and the iOS integration definitely have me hooked in, too, but I'm looking forward to seeing how all of my favorite apps start using the new LED touch strip.

      iMessages, Quicklook, and force touch trackpads are relatively minor features in my opinion compared to some of things the Surface Studio can offer.

      +1 from me.

      I think there are a lot of things on the Mac OS that simply make daily tasks more efficient. Having worked on a Mac for over 10 years now, I think it would be a big learning curve to get to that level of efficiency on a PC.

      I'm not saying it's impossible, just wondering if I'd want to put myself through that pain!

        Seriously. Windows sure has changed a lot since I last used it. I tried using Windows 10 recently and I didn't know what the hell was going on.

      Just thought I'd add that there are plugins for Windows like Seer that replicate the space-to-preview functionality from macOS. I was on the "Macs are just more efficient in this industry" train for a while, but this is less and less the case these days.
