OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Why is stopping admitting defeat?

1) Because no platform is perfect, to stop trying means you've decided to settle for the platform that sucks least.

2) If you stop you become tied down, mired in one system, with all your stuff stuck in one company's way of doing things. Moving means keeping things on your terms so you can make the next move.

3) You've given up on what's over the next hill, lost your sense of exploration.
