Perspective on Apple Core Rot Over Some Years

Blemishes turns to internal rot,
sooner or later

Given the recent worst-ever security flaw Apple has ever delivered along with severe performance problems with APFS in macOS High Sierra, I thought it appropriate to add context on Apple software quality.

In 2011, security expert Bruce Schneier in his 2011-09-27 blog references as “dumb mistakes” the page Cracking OS X Lion Passwords. That’s 6 years ago. The character of men doesn’t change over time with rare exception (dubious), but does a software development organization led by the wrong folks? Seems unlikely. The reader comments in Schneier’s blog are interesting too. So Apple’s feckless approach to passwords goes back at lest 6+ years.

More perspective:
