One of the things I've always liked about macOS, OS X and whatever names they've used over the years is how little it changes with every single iteration. If you've used a version like Snow Leopard and then didn't use any computers for several years (going to prison or whatever) you'd still immediately feel at home with the latest version of macOS. Compare this to all of those complete overhauls of Windows.

I disagree. Things like the "natural" scrolling now activated by default in macOS which makes absolutely no sense with a mouse, for instance, and is really disorienting. The disappearing scroll bars by default, same thing. Thankfully all this non sense can be turned off, in order to revert to a time when macOS didn't tried to look like a tablet.
Whereas the GUI of Windows (except the Windows 8 industrial accident, which was a huge mess, to be honest) remained stable.

Cougar, you can play the Witcher 1 in isometric view like NWN rather than third person, that's what I did. Sadly they removed this option in Witcher 2.

Does it make sense to use a FreeSync monitor with a GeForce card? I've seen contradictory advice.

I wish gaming monitors had more connectivity: most have only a single DP and HDMI port, and rarely USB. My needs are: 1440p, VA or IPS panel, matte, at least two DP (or mDP), a few (2 to 4) USB 3 ports; a nice bonus would be portrait mode, but I seldom use it on my current display (because of all the cables, rotating it is a mess) so not imperative . AFAIK none exist with these requirements in Gsync, and I found a couple with FreeSync: AOC AGON AG322QCX (31" curved) and Asus MG279Q (27"). The former looks nice, but is huge and won't fit on my desk! I currently have a Dell U2713HM, which lacks Free/Gsync and whose bleeding in the dark is annoying, as well as lack of contrast (black isn't really black but rather heavy grey). I think VA panels (I had one before) are superior to IPS in this respect.

much larger screen

But it's usually much farther from your eyes. So the viewing angle, unless you have a small monitor or a huge TV in a small room, should be larger with the computer. That's the reason console FPS ports have so often this horridly small FOV.
