Modern PC-based operating systems---Windows, macOS, and Chome OS---are all inherently similar in that they provide a desktop, icons for launching apps and opening documents, inter-app communications capabilities, and some form of integration with cloud-based services, especially storage. But it’s the little differences that can really catch you up. And if you followed along with my Living with Chromebook series last Fall, you may remember that the single biggest issue I had using a Chromebook was workflow related.
This isn’t a trivial matter: Each time one trips up using a new system, or encounters something different or more limited than what they were previously used to, the possibility that the new thing can replace the old is diminished. Face enough blockers and it’s over.
