Microsoft has seen the light and declared this to be the year of the Windows creative. And as a result, many artists will find new Surface Pros, Surface Books or Surface Studios stuffed inside their (enormous) Christmas stockings in the next few days.
Others of you will also be unwrapping a variety of Windows tablets and convertible laptops from makers like Dell, HP and Lenovo.
And many among these two groups will be disaffected Mac creatives who haven’t touched Windows in a long time (if ever).
You will all have many questions.
