My main issue is that we're on Mac devices and often things seem to work better in the Windows environment. In particular we're having issues with OneNote. 

I'm also trying to get myself trained on PowerBI - no Mac desktop

Trying to use a team as a template - the Tabs content (mainly website URLs) don't copy across..

Teams works pretty identically between mac and PC, but acknowledge that there are other parts of Office 365 that are really Windows first. I would suggest describing your OneNote issue in the Onenote forum.

Correct, the current option to start with a copy of an existing Team brings across tabs in an unconfigured state, which is pretty rubbish. I've built provisioning solutions for my clients in the past using calls to the graph to overcome this, but it's not something particularly simple to achieve.

I'm hoping that in a few months when the new Templating feature arrives for Teams this will make this far easier, I'm fairly sure it will allow tabs to be configured when a template is selected, more of templates here ... https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/create-teams-quickly-with-templates-in-m...
