It's time for me to confess a deep, dark secret: when it comes to software, I can sometimes be a bit of a hipster.
When I was in high school and into college, I frequently went out of my way to use different software just for the sake of not using the typical apps my friends were using. In the world of IM, I might have used ICQ, AIM and MSN as the protocols, but it never took me long to jump away from the official apps: over the years I used Miranda, Pidgin, Trillian, etc. much more often than actual MSN Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ clients. I spent nearly a year using MEPIS Linux as my primary OS on a mildly-antiquated laptop. And of course, I spent about a decade using Opera as my main browser, a fact that got me consistently mocked at Microsoft.
Towards the end of college and especially when I started my job at Microsoft, though, I found myself jumping full force in the opposite direction, going out of my way to use the official Microsoft apps like Photo Gallery, OneNote and of course OneDrive. (I still used Opera until they decided to give up work on their own rendering engine and switch to Chromium.) I also bought in to the Microsoft ecosystem, using Windows Phone as my primary OS and an assortment of Windows-based PCs–mostly Thinkpads–over the years.
Ironically, sticking to "the man" during that period was actually somewhat hipster in its own way: as Apple gained success with iPhones and iPads and Android began its spectacular growth, most people weren't buying Microsoft-based devices, and as a consequence weren't having the same computing experience I was. So in spite of my convergence to the safe, no-one-got-fired-for-buying choices, I was yet again in the minority.
On the eve of my five year anniversary at Microsoft, I found myself increasingly out of touch with what most of my peers were experiencing in their day-to-day computing life. I had never owned an iPhone (though I'd had the occasional experience with iOS through iPods and iPads), and I hadn't used an Android phone since the very early, very painful stages of that OS. I hadn't used Mac OS on a primary computer in about five years. Instead, I was quite familiar with Windows, Windows Phone, and–all hipster-like–Palm's tragically doomed WebOS.
