There is no advantage to switching to INDI if you are running your control software on Windows. In fact that would result in a massive loss of features and a vast reduction of compatible client software applications.

However ASCOM only runs on Windows at this time so INDI (or Software Bisque's API) are the only choices if you want to run on a Mac or LINUX-based computer.

That said, there is a plan in progress to allow both INDI and ASCOM interfaces for AP-mounts to be used on all three operating systems.
