exactly, that's the main thing why I keep using macOS, but all we see are other things.
and this stuff is more important than a modernized Explorer?
How about finally be able to see folder sizes in ?!
something like this ?, I bet many people would find this more useful that the 4 features above:

Same company, same policy. the same limitations apply to their OS/software/hardware.
does macos use the same file system? nope. their proprietary file system is called apfs and it's different from NTFS. again the same argument from my previous comment applies here.
Windows is the most widely used OS for a reason. apple's limited hardware and os support gives them ability to use apfs file system which is made only for flash drives like fast SSDs.
Windows on the other hand should consider all types of customers. there are still people who use IDE hard disks with Windows.........
yeah IDE, not even SATA.
of course Microsoft can't implement a file system that kills the hardware compatibility for Millions of people, if not billions, who still use HDDs.
i personally use M.2 SSD with 2000/1000 MB/s read/write speed so i won't care about it, but majority of people still use HDD, majority of those HDDs are old and not 7200 RPM.
on macos calculating the folder sizes on fast SSDs is not a problem, that's why it's implemented there.
so it's not an excuse, it's the reality...it's the people

@HotCakeXshowing file size is working since ages on macOS even on HFS+
https://www.xyplorer.com/ for windows can do the same as finder, it actually works quite good and fast.
Anyways this was just one example which thing are missing under Windows, but hey, it is just a matter of preference. So use what suits your need. No need to argue.
