People not living in the Apple world, usually dismiss its ecosystem by saying that you end up locked into it.
The same people think that by moving to Android they are going to be free. Free of what? This is a fallacy.
When you start investing in either Apple or Google, you get stuck with it. Google’s ecosystem locks you in no less than Apple’s if you really want to be productive.
The question is really which ecosystem covers your requirements better. This is not about which one is evil or which one is a walled garden.
As it stands, Apple fits my needs better. And has done it for the past 22 years. That’s all.
