The Windows GUI is faster, but looks less polished, and there are glitches in dark mode
Looks like it is a matter of preference, fast vs better looking.
This is interesting, and certainly a point of contention when I get into some heated exchange on a Mac vs. PC thread. For my own personal creative needs, esthetics matter and they matter enough that I've been making my professional life a lot more complicated by running a Hackintosh and doing without Nvidia GPU's in a field where I am an outlier as an OSX user (i.e. Video, VFX and CG).
I think a good analogy for an OS is one's work environment -- I want to make sure that the physical place where I do my work has an esthetic that is conducive to my creative output. Could I work in a drab office and get stuff done? Sure, but it would affect my work and ultimately my output. Conversely, a nicely decorated workspace with good mood lighting, a comfy chair and well designed ergonomics gets me in the right creative mood which in turn makes me want to produce more.
I understand that not everyone has such esthetic concerns as me, but it's definitely what keeps me wanting to stay in OSX.
There are of course some more practical matters in addition to esthetics, but I don't want to turn this into a Mac vs. PC thread.
