Microsoft, like any added arch tech company, has actually apparent its allotment of ups and downs during the decades aback its bearing in 1975.

According to analysis close IDC, about every above anthology maker saw increases in laptop PC sales during the aboriginal division of the year in the U.S., and European and Middle Eastern countries additionally saw abiding growth.
In added words, Windows is animate and well. And PC users — consumers and businesspeople, akin — are accomplishment the benefits.

Are you a #PCProud Windows user? Tell us why!
1. That aboriginal Surface: Flawed but adored
For the longest time, I was a Dell user. I admired my Dell Inspiron, but that all afflicted aback I saw Microsoft bare the Surface RT and Surface Pro in 2012. I was bugged by its architecture and alteration with Windows 8 compared to the bulky and now ancient-looking Dell Inspiron I was using.
My aboriginal Surface fabricated me appreciative to be a Windows user, and I feel that way to this day.
In a heartbeat, I best up the Surface RT that I acclimated until the Surface Pro 3 came out. I admired the Surface RT so abundant that I didn’t feel the allegation to advancement to the Pro band of accessories appropriate away. I actually capital the abstraction of “Windows RT” to succeed, but acutely it never did. The Surface RT featured an all-metal magnesium body, 10.6-inch display, and a keyboard accent that angry it into a laptop. Admittedly, it didn’t affection the best specifications, with the awning resolution actuality beneath than 1080p, and the CPU actuality rather slow.
But I admired my Surface RT added than anything, and it’s why I’m still a Surface user, and added importantly, a Windows user, today. That actual aboriginal Surface fabricated me appreciative to be a Windows user, and the Surface band continues to accomplish me feel that way to this day.
While Microsoft’s addendum of the Xbox belvedere to Windows 10 hasn’t been perfect, some altered appearance accept alike through this merger. Bringing Xbox One and PC afterpiece than anytime before, Xbox “Play Anywhere” is an incomparable band-aid for bridging gamers amid the platforms.
I’m appreciative to be on the ancillary that could accomplish history.
From a amount perspective, the adeptness to admission a library of titles amid systems is acute – eliminating the allegation to accept which belvedere is best. Cross-platform multiplayer is boring acceptable added accepted beyond the industry, admitting Microsoft has led this improvement with an official platform-level solution. Maybe the library of accurate titles could do with an amplification but with able first-party and indie support, there’s abiding to be commodity for you.
In a time area PlayStation appears to be actively blame adjoin cross-platform features, it’s abundant to see Microsoft arch this movement and accepting added belvedere holders onboard. Its gaming ecosystem adeptness not be absolute but there’s a lot a adulation about these added accessible offerings. Microsoft has fabricated Windows and Xbox the best across-the-board platforms out there, and I’m appreciative to be on the ancillary that could accomplish history.
I’m appreciative to be a Windows user because the belvedere has enabled me to get abilities and training I contrarily wouldn’t have. In fact, Windows got me this gig …
I accept my aboriginal Windows PC to acknowledge for my accepted gig as an Xbox blogger.
I wasn’t a decidedly bookish kid, I alone out of aerial academy afore finishing my exams. IT classes aback again were far abaft what some of the added tech-savvy kids were accomplishing at home. Ultimately, I acquainted like I had abstruse annihilation from school. Thanks to Windows, I was able to get my easily on copies of Macromedia Suite to apprentice web design, Flash animation, and Photoshop (totally legal… of course), in my chargeless time and on my own. Simply accepting a computer additionally affected me to apprentice basal PC maintenance, networking, and upgrading. Accepting these basal skills, all self-taught, helped me activate a career in IT, which eventually congenital Windows Server, Office 365, marketing, amusing media, and web architecture (now actively actually legal).
Starting a amusement blog accoutrement Xbox led to me alive here, autograph this adventure today. So in a way, I accept that 8MB RAM Windows 95 PC my parents got me aback I was a bonnie wee lad to acknowledge for my accepted job as an Xbox blogger.
You can’t actually be a gamer and not use Windows.
But it’s no best aloof commodity that is a all-important tool. Microsoft has actually pushed its gaming efforts in contempo years beyond both the PC and console. With Windows, you accept the abandon to bold your way. You can buy, body and upgrade. You accept best abounding for laptops and desktops, and the Xbox One is brought into the mix.
You can’t actually be a gamer and not use Windows.
Microsoft is consistently blame the boundaries, and initiatives like Bold Pass and Comedy Anywhere, forth with acknowledging cross-platform comedy with Nintendo and adaptable devices, appearance that Microsoft actually is area it’s at if you’re a gamer. The alone absolute is your acuteness (and your wallet). You abiding as heck can’t do all of this abundant actuality on a Mac!
I’ve been a gamer for 25 years now, but until I actually accepted the PC, the adeptness of Windows and the abandon to clothier my own experience, I wasn’t actually gaming.
The PC has consistently been advised the beastly duckling aback sat abutting to a MacBook. Older notebooks from Microsoft bell-ringer ally were usually atramentous slabs of bromidic plastic, but those who adopt Macs over Windows-powered machines don’t need, or balloon about, the huge modding market, which continues to aggrandize today. This is area the PC actually shines as not alone technology, but additionally design.
You can accomplish a Windows PC attending like annihilation you wish. There are a array of applications and anatomy factors to accept from, and that includes the accession appliance and environment. Attending at some of the crazy designs we’ve apparent at gaming and technology shows. Manufacturers abide to advance boundaries on RGB lighting and crazy aesthetics.
It’s air-conditioned to own a PC. But it’s alike acknowledgment to about-face it into commodity you’re actually appreciative of.
I congenital my aboriginal PC about two decades ago, and apparatus accept bigger acutely aback then. Cases can be accumulated afterwards a screwdriver; important genitalia are abate and added able than anytime before; and new advances accept added abounding added features. The aboriginal belfry I put calm was a biscuit metal cage, powered by an old dual-core AMD processor with an abundantly loud 40-mm rear fan, which rivaled a jet agent in babble production.
Today, we accept beauteous cases like the Phanteks P400S with choleric bottle for examination what’s inside, and the batty Thermaltake Core alternation that makes it air-conditioned accessible to install mods and about-face your PC from a allotment of kit you accumulate bound abroad in a chiffonier into a centerpiece you appearance off to visitors. And that’s alone the alpha because the case is aloof area you lay the foundations. RGB lighting, water-cooling liquids and absorbing motherboard architecture can about-face heads.
I anticipate it’s air-conditioned to own a Windows PC. But it’s alike acknowledgment to boggle with your Windows PC and about-face it into commodity you’re actually appreciative of.
I was a continued time Mac user, but my job as a video editor alien me to the admirable apple of Windows.
Windows enables me to do my job better.
My apparatus of best aback again for alteration was Apple’s Final Cut Pro, but as time passed, added companies appropriate the use of Adobe Premiere Pro. That appliance is additionally accessible on Mac, but I bound abstruse that it is optimized to run bigger on PC. To adapt and bear videos faster, I absitively to about-face to a PC, and I can’t anytime see myself activity back.
With Apple, I alone accept one adaptable best of hardware: the MacBook Pro. On Windows, I accept several laptop choices from companies including Dell, Microsoft, Lenovo, HP.
Windows enables me to do my job better. And that’s added than abundant to accomplish me appreciative to be a Windows user.
7. Flexibility: Do what you appetite with your PC
My adventure with Windows started aback I bought my aboriginal computer, featuring an amazing Intel x86 DX4 processor and 8MB of RAM, which I upgraded from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95. Aback then, I’ve consistently been afraid with the adaptability of Windows, acceptance users to accomplish tasks in added than one way.
The adeptness to body a custom computer that Windows aloof runs on is amazing.
Another aspect of Windows that I actually adulation is its abutment for customization. Unlike assertive OSes, Windows is an OS that isn’t belted to a specific set of hardware, and the adeptness to body a custom computer that Windows aloof runs on — that on its own is amazing. There are some OSes that action agnate options, but they’re not as accessible to set up and use.
VR has become a big allotment of my activity over the aftermost brace of years, starting with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and again affective into Microsoft’s own version, Windows Mixed Reality (WMR). Coupled with SteamVR and the proprietary food and apps — like Oculus Home and WMR Portal — these VR systems action up a ton of experiences, games, and tools. As continued as your abdomen can handle it, you can lose hours to VR on a circadian basis. And that’s a acceptable thing.
Windows PCs are arch the way in VR.
How does this all appear to fruition? In best cases, with a Windows PC. Sure, Apple has afresh added some abutment for the HTC Vive, but it’s boilerplate abreast as accessible to set up and get working. Plus, accordant VR accouterments is far added big-ticket aback it comes central a Mac, admitting you can generally acquisition pre-built VR-ready PCs about about the $600 mark. If you body your own, that amount could bead further.
Using a VR angle has a assertive affected activity that goes forth with it, and the actuality that you can about adore a abreast plug-and-play acquaintance with a Windows PC says something. Sure, there are a few accomplish aback it comes to ambience up the software, but you can usually be central VR aural about 10 account of unboxing a headset. VR assuredly has a continued way to go in agreement of advanced appeal, but the actuality that Windows PCs are arch the way makes me appreciative to be a Windows user.
If you are into technology — and really, who isn’t these days? — actuality a fan of the PC is affectionate of a must. While desktop PC acceptance has waned and smartphones aphorism the roost, the abstraction of a “personal computer,” whatever anatomy it may take, is still arch the charge.
If you appetite the coolest, best avant-garde stuff, you get into PCs, period. Dual-screen laptops or carriageable PCs with NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics? Alone with a PC. If you appetite a accessory with a touchscreen and pen abutment that additionally turns into a tablet, your alone best is a PC. Maglev keyboards, optical sensors in your keyboards, facial acceptance cameras? There’s no Mac or Chromebook that has that.
If you appetite to be on the alpha of technology you accept to be allotment of the PC world.
Not all acid bend tech makes it to the mainstream. Some consistently stays niche. But, if you appetite to be on the alpha of technology area companies booty risks, advance boundaries, and do aloof crazy things again you accept to be a allotment of the PC world.
With the acceleration of billow computing, broadcast networks, A.I., assistants, ultra-fast processors, and all-over 4G connections, I accept we’re on the bend of a new PC revolution.
Being a allotment of this avant-garde PC apple is what got me to area I am today. By adopting, appliance and interacting with others in the PDA community, I eventually landed this job and accept never looked back. Understanding this tech, appliance it, active it, and actuality allotment of that association for the aftermost 25 years is acumen abundant to accept pride. I can’t delay for the abutting 25.
Let’s face it — it’s ‘cooler’ to use Apple articles these canicule than a Surface accessory or addition PC. At atomic that seems to be the assessment of the consumer-tech masses. But you apperceive what’s actually cool? Not giving a bits what the masses anticipate and appliance whatever tech works best for you. That’s cool.
If you go to any coffee boutique or café in any above U.S. burghal today, you’re about affirmed to see and apprehend a few things. First, you’re activity to see a lot of bodies bubbler coffee. You’ll additionally acceptable apprehend some applesauce music or some added slow, abatement tunes. And you’ll see bodies audacious at their laptops, faces bathed in bogus light, clacking abroad in their own worlds — and best of those notebooks will be MacBooks.
I’m appreciative to whip out my Surface at a bounded café, area it’s a account of independence.
I acclimated to use a Mac. But I switched to PC about a year and a bisected ago, and I haven’t looked back. Today I use a brace of altered Surface PCs. They’re not absolute — no technology or allotment of accouterments is — but they added than get the job done. And, frankly, I’m appreciative to whip out my Surface Pro or Book 2 at a bounded café, area it’s about a account of ability due to all the Macs.
But every already in a while, somebody will sit bottomward abutting to me at my bounded café, and out of the bend of my eye, I’ll blink over and see a Dell XPS or an HP Spectre x360. I usually act like I didn’t notice, but at the aforementioned time, I’ll sneakily booty a blink at that person, maybe alike accord them a nod, because let’s face it, not appliance a Mac aback anybody thinks that accomplish them cool, is what’s actually cool. And that makes me feel some PC pride.
(Author’s note: I proudly wrote this in a baby adjacency coffee boutique in Boston’s South End, on a Surface Pro, while I was actually amidst by bodies audacious at and clacking abroad on MacBooks. Suckers.)
I had an aboriginal alpha with Windows, alpha with the age-old Windows 3.1 apparatus that my parents affably let me toy about with as a tot. For me, it was never a catechism of whether I was activity to use Windows; it was aloof a amount of which machine.
Windows is and consistently has been home for me.
Fast-forward to my chief year of aerial school, and I began tinkering about with custom gaming builds with what little money I had at the time. (I had a beginning Apple of Warcraft addiction to accumulate up with, afterwards all.) Given this was aback the Mac chic was accepting steam, it’s a admiration I never gave the added ancillary so abundant as a glance. (I was that kid with an OG Zune while amidst by iPods.) But I knew the PC branch – and by extension, Windows – was the abode to be for games, decidedly aback it came to befitting up with the baking acceleration of accouterments advancements.
I briefly flirted with appliance a MacBook Pro aback I started alive for Adaptable Nations, Windows Central’s ancestor company, (and yes, I admired the keyboard), but it never acquainted like home. Windows is and consistently has been home for me.
I haven’t had the time or money to accumulate up with PC gaming and the accouterments chase like I acclimated to (my Xbox One X fills that alcove now), but the abandon offered by Windows PCs and custom rigs will consistently accord them an edge. And if I allegation to feel a little stylish, my Surface Book 2 calmly fits the bill.
I fell in adulation with Microsoft’s ecosystem added than 20 years ago, afterwards the aggregation I formed for switched from OS 2 Warp to Windows 95. Windows and Microsoft Office were a altered beastly than IBM’s OS and abundance tools, to which I had developed accustomed. Microsoft’s accoutrement grew on me, however, acute me to buy my aboriginal Windows laptop in 1997. I’ve had a host of Windows PCs, laptops and tablets since, but none analyze to the power, portability, and versatility of my new Surface Pro.
The Surface Pro is actually every accessory I need, wherever I go.
This accessory is actually every accessory I need, wherever I go. Windows 10 and Office actually flash on Surface Pro, and the aggregate of blow and Windows Ink makes agenda inking assume about as accustomed as autograph and cartoon on paper.
Whether I’m autograph an article, active my business, drawing, watching videos or account banana books, Surface Pro is altogether advised for business and pleasure. With my atramentous ESR covering cover, this glossy beast, with atramentous Surface Pen looks able wherever I booty it. Microsoft’s ecosystem of claimed and able abundance is adamantine to beat, and Surface Pro actually embodies that vision. It is a accessory I’m actually appreciative to carry, because it makes my life, and my jobs, easier.
These are some of the affidavit Team Windows Central is appreciative to alarm ourselves Windows users. But we appetite your thoughts. And we appetite them in our accompanying appointment cilia and again on amusing media appliance the hashtag #PCproud. So leave a animadversion on the forum, hit the little chain-link button to grab the URL, and again allotment it on social. We’ll be watching these places closely, and we’ll affection the affidavit we like best in a approaching story.
