Microsoft developer and enthusiast outreach is second to none

The one thing that Apple could really learn from Microsoft which is the correspondence either via their blogging or MSDN videos regarding not only the new features that they are working on or added to the operating system update they just released but also giving background into home grown technology and explaining why certain decisions were made and how those decision impact users and end users today. There is a great article regarding Edge and the improvements to the DOM implementation ( link ) and how Microsoft is working to improve it as well as a brief trip down memory lane as to give context to its original design decisions. There are similar examples of this in the Apple world but it tends to be spread out and not formalised to the same degree in which Microsoft does it which doesn’t really do Apple’s engineers justice for the work they actually put into macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS.
