Why I left Mac for Windows: Apple has given up image/svg+xml

I don’t say this lightly, but Windows is back, and Microsoft is doing a great job. Microsoft is getting better, faster at making Windows good than Apple is getting better at doing anything to OS X.

Another post by another Apple user switching to an alternative OS, this time it’s Microsoft. Also, see the follow-up post for details about how the author has set-up their new Windows development environment. The interesting part for me was this remark about Hyper:

OK, there are a few weird bugs. For the most part, I’ve managed to avoid them, but there’s one I’m yet to figure out: how to escape nano. There’s no way to CTRL + C out, and you end up needing to close the terminal.
¯_(ツ)_/¯

I’m pretty sure this is a known bug with Hyper and something that I experienced too. In my case, I was trying to detach a screen session with CTRL+A D, pretty basic stuff and I was surprised Hyper couldn’t handle it. I’m sure this will get fixed in the future, but until that happens, Hyper will be unusable to me, which is disappointing.
