I used to work as an external consultant to a design company that used a lot of PCs.
I once chatted to their computer guru when there was nobody else around.
He frankly admitted to me that every time he came in to service the company's PCs, he would insert a deliberate glitch, set to trigger on a date set by him, requiring the company to call him in. Nice work if you can get it!
He was able to get away with doing that because nobody actually knows what a computer guru does.
So if/when you adopt the MacOS you can kiss your computer guru goodbye. You won't need him.
And don't ask for his advice about adopting the MacOS (because it will make him redundant!). When you have a computer that never gives you any problems or if it ever does, that you can't resolve yourself or with the help of the Mac gurus on the discussion forums, why would you need a computer guru?

On average, I need my computer guru twice or even once a year and his services are not expensive. Thanks for your advice regarding Mac but, as the saying goes, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I use Windows for more than 15 years and am afraid that acquiring new skills and knowledge in complex with working on current projects might be a bit too much for me as I am no spring chicken anymore.
