I’ve noticed that with every update Apple breaks something and it’s not as stable anymore. macOS is a festival of BUGs and slow compared to other operating systems. Windows works on so many devices and honestly, it’s impressive that it’s compatible with a wide range of hardware.
All Apple has to do is optimize and make sure it works with MBA, MBP, iMac, and Mac Pro. He can’t even handle it. There are no drivers for Apple’s AMD 6000 series graphics yet and that just shows Apple’s neglect of macOS.
macOS is not the “world’s most advanced operating system” as Apple calls it, not in fact worse than Linux and Windows.
Let’s move on to the little things that bother me a lot:
Finder is slow and VERY unintuitive compared to File Explorer. Quick Look is the only thing I like about Finder.
But I recently found out that you can get Quick Look on Windows using a third party app and it works great. The set of commands / shortcuts does not make sense on mac. Finder is the main culprit, opening a file is cmd + O. You can’t even use enter to open the file without installing an app and this process is tedious. You must deactivate SiP for this to work. The “xtraFinder” application is buggy and not as smooth as Finder itself. The whole CUT, COPY and PASTE thing is very boring. Seriously, how hard is it to add optional CUT to Finder.
IMO File Explorer is MUCH better than Finder, and oh yes, you can REFRESHER files on Windows A LOT easier than Finder and you can also EXIT File Explorer and see the items / files on your desktop. I’m not sure why Apple doesn’t allow users to quit Finder, but it might be because IF you quit Finder using a third-party app, your desktop items disappear because that’s how works macOS.
Those kinds of things are not there on Windows and Linux.
Shortcuts also apply to MS Office products and browsers. For example cmd + R to update a browser but under Windows a simple F5.
Honestly, there are a lot more issues with macOS, no Vulkan support, no latest openGL support and you’re paying more for LESS.
The game library is so bad that Linux has more games to play.
Oh, and with Mac M1s increasingly closed and not using standard PC parts, this is more of a reason to stay away from Mac ARM (also VERY limited app support) and macOS on M1. is even more appalling. I have seen people on this same forum with SSD write issues that are already 16TB and above. While my Intel 16 “is only 7TB and brought it in January 2020 and used it almost every day. Mac M1s use more swap memory than their Intel counterparts show that ARM architecture is not yet ready on desktop operating systems The software was limited when macOS was on Intel / x86 and on ARM it will be even more limited.
There is no reason to buy more IMO Macs, Windows has come to the point that it is superior to macOS in ALL cases.
It’s best for gaming, productivity (schoolwork, video rendering / editing, music production, and 3D work), and business / business.
In addition, applications such as SolidWorks and autoCAD are available with full tool sets.
I would like to conclude by saying that this 16 “MBP will be my last Apple computer and a nice premium Windows / Linux laptop / PC will be on the next list with Intel / AMD / Nvidia inside.
