    It's not so much Sketch itself. It's more that an active development community exists for a market that buys new creative tools.

    Windows doesn't have that right now, though Affinity's plans are a hopeful sign.

    If Microsoft continues to produce desirable hardware platforms like this then perhaps those developers and consumers will build and buy there too.

      You're idea of who and what a designer is a bit too narrow. Design goes a bit more than app and website design.

      Yes for UI/UX design OSX is by far the better platform (Framer, Principal, Sketch etc) but for other designs like game design, industrial design, architecture etc Windows might be a better platform ( Revit, 3DS max etc )

        I'm just talking about new tools.

        Windows has plenty of old tools that a lot of industries are stuck with but the Mac is a healthy software ecosystem where people are willing to build entirely new tools and consumers are willing to buy them.
