    Choosing an OS can be hard – There’s only so much desk space! But a super ultrawide display can help with that.. And of course, we had to bring it to its logical conclusion.

                  I know you all know this but I use parallels on my Mac to run windows side by side and in fact currently I am running dual screen Mac and a single screen Windows off of my Mac Mini and it works great but I realize that this was not the point of this video!!! Enjoyed the video! Keep the great information coming!!!

                        But how do you resolve the horrible Mac keyboard situation?
                        I guess you could always simply have two keyboards right next to one another but... I'm not sure my brain wants to deal with that back and forth. (I tried using a Mac keyboard on Windows recently and it suuuucked. And obviously the same thing when I use my PC keyboard on my Mac VM.)
                        Just for that reason, I'd stick with PC unless I want to e.g. build something for the app store on macOS. Fuck Final Cut Pro and other macOS exclusives. (Although I guess that's easy for me to say because my video editing needs are pretty basic.)

                          I love Anthony, he looks like, and acts like my mentor, who taught me damn near everything I know about fixing, or building computers. I havn't seen him(my mentor) in a few years since he moved on to work in another field (He was the head tech at a company called XS Computer Solutions in Utah, before it shut down after the owner sold it. I worked for them for roughly a year and a half)

                                            I'm impressed by the nerd flexing here, but I feel a little let down that they don't have monitors with Ubuntu/Mint and Chrome OS as well. I'd love to see say stacked dual ultra-wide monitors, (or even just an ultra HD 4K multiple display monitor) running the 4 horsemen operating systems.

                                                          This is very interesting. I love MacOS, but I also love gaming. I have a beast of a Ryzen 7 PC and a MacBook Pro, and to use my PC for work I have to use Windows. Previewing huge TIF files is rubbish on Windows, I use big libraries and drag and drop assets into Illustrator, Windows sucks at generating thumbnails and can’t quick preview like MacOS with the spacebar.
