@Markus W But I still applaud Apple for being security-minded. And at first encouraging security, now strongly demanding security, and soon insisting on security, can only improve the security mindset.
But at the same time make silly mistakes such as showing the users passwords instead of password hints!
@Gavin S Imagine the monstrosity the OS and hardware would be if they included all legacy technology since 1984. Change sometimes hurts.
Next year, 32-Bit will be gone, so I am expecting the OS to half in size...
What's kinda frustrating about a lot of the changes that Apple makes, is that they don't give you options any more. In the old days you could pick and choose what gets installed, there were a ton of preference options for configuring your computer to the best way for your workflow. Now it's stark, and if you don't like the changes they make (media keys anyone), tough !@#$%. It takes what 2~3 lines of code and a checkbox in the prefs, then (almost) everyone's happy. It reminds me of the days when MS would use the term "file(s)" because they were too lazy to display "file" or "files" depending on how many you're working on.
It's like the only person I've seen who uses apps in Full screen on a computer is my sister-in-law, because she uses an iPad more often than not. Yet the resize widget by default sends any window to swallow up the screen. In HDRtist NX, I added an option to revert this behavior, and every once in a while I get someone taking the time out and to write to me and thank me for doing so (again a couple of lines of code and a checkbox).
There is moving forwards to improve usage of the product, and there's moving sideways or backwards just to say it's the future.
