I don't want to compare apples with oranges but:
Recovering from Xiaomi brick: 2 minutes (Xiaomi devices are literally unbrickable. You can fastboot flash any of your partitions thousands of times within minutes on any operating system that has fastboot. You can throw the Xiaomi device against a brick wall and it will still work just fine! The latter is not recommended though ; )
Recovering from the same kind of brick on a Samsung device: 48 - 72 hours.
Xiaomi device have fully working fastboot straight out of the box
Samsung device have empty crippled fake fastboot out of the box
Now you decide which manufacturer is more open source and developer friendly
