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.

I don't switch, I use several at the same time.

My two phones are an iPhone 5 and a Lumia 800. For computers I use Macs, but I also have a few Linux PCs and even Windows Vista/7/8 ones. I also use an Amiga 1200 and Commodore 128 for games. Plus I have a whole range of PDAs, palmtops and programmable calculators.

I get where Thom is getting at. Different experiences keep the mind open and flexible. On the downside it is hard to truly master a single on of your devices and I may be a bit expensive.
