even if it was more profitable for MS to move its apps and services to linux that doesn't mean it would do it. because large companies tend to get obsessed with control
Well, a large point to that and why I think it's ridiculous to think Microsoft would ever switch to linux is because, without control, you have to seek permission for change and a lot of the expertise is not in house. With control, you are 100% responsible for everything that goes into the software, the user experience, the path the software takes, etc. and the minute you give that up, you can no longer guarantee every aspect of the project meets your standards/focus, etc.
To imagine that Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc. would be willing to cede control to someone else and rely upon others to "do the right thing" as they see it is a bit far fetched.
plus an MS-picked version of linux in WSL
Microsoft isn't doing the picking in WSL. Any distro can be available in WSL and you can even [roll your own]1

One plus 6T vs. Pixel 3 vs. Other lightweight Android?
I am looking for a not bloated experience where I can use google apps easily.
I am in general more fond of good software than good specs. But most posts and reviews out there compare specs.
I have been on Samsung s6 and s8 now and in general I do not feel that Samsung apps are very good compared to google apps, and also some of their apps are undeletable. And for instance I cannot disable the Samsung calendar so if I install google calendar I have 2 apps called Calendar..
I have never owned an iPhone but it feels tempting because of quality apps and recently more security and privacy compared to play store. (Probably blasphemy on this subreddit but if you have input for or against I am up for it)
The pixel 3 looks tempting but now all phones are coming out with 3 or more cameras. The software updates are something I appreciate and also since I'd like a Google experience it should be a good fit. One plus 6T looks like a similar non bloated experience. But both of these phones are not sold in stores in Norway so I cannot test test phones easily. And Pixel 3 is very expensive here so it should be an investment worth it.
The Huawei P20 mate looks to have a very good camera and good specs, but the software I suspect and have read about to be more like Samsung.
Specs/features that I am looking for:
- Good camera
- Good 4k recording, not a must but would be great
- Good software that work well with two accounts of google(Work/personal)
- Good base software in general or possibility to delete stock apps
- Not bloated experience ie. I am not so keen on samsung/huawei because of their software.
- Snappy UI over ultra specs
Thanks for your input, I have been reading through a lot of posts before posting myself. Really a lot of great advice.
