    I try never to pigeonhole myself like that. I would never want to use just one ecosystem. I enjoy the differences in all (ok, not a fan of Google, but I do have one Android tablet). But I love having options. I don't have to be too upset if my WP doesn't get an app, because either my iPhone or Droid tablet will. Love options!

    I used to be an iPod & Macbook guy back in college, then went over to Android for a few years (terrible experience with the original Galaxy S that basically tainted my opinion of the Android OS completely), and now I'm pretty much a Microsoft purist with an 8.1 laptop, Lumia 920 & 925, Surface RT, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and an Xbox Music pass. I just love having one unified design language and experience across all of my devices.

    I use most things from MS (surface, lumia, office, onedrive, outlook.com), but I use Google for YouTube and I have a PS4 because I wanted to play Infamous and Goatee Simulator (aka MLB 14), and not Titanfall. But I'll pick up an XB1 later because WP 8.1's Cortana has piqued my interest in finally playing Halo and the series is getting a remake with upgraded graphics.

    Bottom line is I use what works the best for me, and that tends to be MS. No one else even has a Surface-like device. I don't know why any college student would waste his/her money on something that is unable to take notes in half the classes (i.e., no stylus).

    I am 100% in but I also own other devices... so I guess I am in between.

    Phones: iPhone 5s as my daily driver, Lumia 920 I use for my Pandora WiFi streaming.

    Computers: 2011 iMac 21 inch, (I don't use it often) but I play one game on it (Out of the Park Baseball, and I sync my phones (Lumia 920 with iPhoto and iPhone 5s) I also stream a lot of content from my iMAC to my apple TV (Like TV shows from CBS etc.)

    Surface Pro 1: I use this sucker on an average of 3-4 hours per day minimum. I use it for school and for work. The power cover is the only thing keeping me from buying a Surface Pro 3.

    Tablet: I have the "the new Ipad" aka Ipad 3. I rarely use it but my wife uses it all the time.

    Media Room:
    Apple TV: We use this every day for Hulu and Netflix
    Xbox 360: I used to use it for Netflix and Hulu but I don't have time to play games on it anymore. I subscribed to Xbox gold for the longest time but there is no point anymore. Just a waste of money for me right now with having an Apple TV, and not playing games on my Xbox.

    I'm a small business person and a sole proprietor. I own and operate one of the largest websites related to my industry and also do sales and marketing consulting with about 20 firms nationally.

    I use nothing but Microsoft because it is modern, state-of-the-art, solid, dependable, works across any platform, any time, any place, and has great productivity tools. It is very cost effective and allows me to compete with the "big boys and girls."

    IMHO, both Apple and Google have really good stuff generally, but they don't have the whole package Microsoft does.

    My stuff: Office 365, OneDrive, Nokia 1020, Surface, Dell Venue 8 Pro, two HP/Windows 8.1 laptops and one HP/Windows 8.1 desktop.

    I am a nurse and photographer and have always loved Microsoft products, Just not their past lack of dedication to a few (Zune for 1). But ahh well. I own a Zune 8g, and 80g. Fujitsu 2020 tablet PC, Lenovo workstation, WP 920 running dev prev 8.1 and am either going to replace my Fujitsu with the new surface pro 3 or get fujitsu's q series. Wouldn't use an apple product if it was free.
    Edit: My wife has Fujitsu 4020, Zune 40g, and Nokia 1020.

    Tech junkie here. Can't limit myself like that.
    I have an iMac .... with a Windows 8.1 bootcamp partition
    I have a laptop with 8.1 and a Ubuntu partition.

    I have an iPhone 5s, a Nokia 1520, and an LG G2.

    I use google chrome as my web browser on Mac and Windows desktops. Safari on my iPhone, and IE on the Nokia.

    Love all of it. I want an iPad and a surface Pro 3.

    BTW, did you know if you have a Mac, Microsoft made an app that will sync iTunes directly to your Nokia phone? as well as Pics to iPhoto.
    works like a charm.

    I love apple, love android phones, and love microsoft. I can't limit myself to one thing. Use All tech!!

    I am also an audiophile. I use Tube preamps, but prefer solid state amps. lol No limits!

    I'll admit two things here before I begin. 1) I'm a Microsoft fanboy. 2) I have enough common sense as a fanboy to know that the services I use aren't going to meet everyone's needs or preferences.

    That being said, is anyone else here but me fully engrained in the Microsoft ecosystem and absolutely loving it?

    If you're not, what or why are the reasons? I ask out of curiosity and hopefully I can get a better understanding on the community as a whole.

    Also have am Xbox. And Microsoft has finally taken care of my biggest gripe with it, charging Xbox live subscription to use Netflix through it (I don't play games online and don't stream music with it so have always had to pay the fee for them to basically enable the wifi antenna, what the hell).
