You might like MacOS more than Windows if you like Linux, at least it 
has bash and most common core utils and stuff, plus a proper terminal 
emulator, and package managers to get good software onto it. The only 
bad part is the user interface kind of sucks and you have to buy ugly 
expensive hardware to run it, but it's still vastly better than Windows, 
IMO :)
