Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?

    I agree with this. I redesigned our product's entire front-end in Sketch so that I would get familiar with Sketch and feel out the positives/negatives. I definitely went through some teething pains, but Sketch is really phenomenal software, even with some rough edges. I only use Photoshop for bitmap editing at this point. I still use Illustrator for icons/complex vectors because Sketch's boolean operations just aren't nearly as strong (makes sense, Illustrator is 30 years old).

    I haven't tried Figma though, and a number of people on the bleeding edge are big fans (as can be seen by this thread). Adobe XD is also going through heavy development, and may be compelling software in a bit more than a year. However, right now its feature set is very limited in comparison to Sketch.
