As a former Apple user (I still have a MacBook Pro, but it's booting up Debian more often than not), I will have to agree with you on the innovation stagnation. The one great thing Apple had going for it was the synergy you had when you bought the entire Apple ecosystem. Everything was adjusted accordingly whether you were working on you iPhone, iPad, Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. And you had an almost flawless consistency of interface throughout the ecosystem.

But what I've been seeing lately is confusing and confounding features that really aren't well thought out, and I'm seeing that Apple is sitting on their laurels more than taking the spear and leading the charge, even though they have been poised to do so for over a decade. It's almost as if Steve Jobs died with the recipe to the Secret Special Sauce and forgot to tell the folks at Apple where to find it.

I did like that Microsoft will be adding AMD processors to their Surface lineup, and finally adopting Android into their world. I worry that Microsoft is on the "Extend" part of thier usual "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish" game plan. Good news...if they do try to extinguish FOSS, all others have to do is fork it to survive. I think they are changing their playbook, though. The Github acquisition, for instance, is out of character. So was their release of Visual Studio Code, which has become my favorite IDE-lite text editor on just about every platform.
