Sloppy engineering, irresponsible and negligent quality control practices, and disdain for the needs of working pros are now the hallmark of Apple software

For the past 3 macOS releases, my workflow as a professional has only been degraded, with not a single benefit. This decline has been going on since 2013, since I first coined the term Apple Core Rot.

Advice: professionals with working systems should stick with what works, never updating to a major new release without some essential benefit.

But lately, even minor updates are suspect, and caution is advised for any working pro who cannot afford downtime or glitches in workflow.

Apple software development practices are negligent and irresponsible

Numerous bugs remain in macOS Crapalina. Nearly all of them will lurk around forever now that Catalina is a maintenance release. Soon we will savor an odiferous dumpster of new “features” shot-through with yet more bugs: macOS Big Sneer.

A fixed calendar date drives the release of macOS; quality control has nothing to do with it. Year after year, a botched macOS Frankenstein drops like a methane-expelled cowpie. Frequent panicked updates follow, to fix what should have never been shipped to customers. Yet these updates are themselves poorly tested, causing yet more problems and bricking some machines.

Sloppy engineering, irresponsible and negligent quality control practices, and disdain for the needs of working pros are now the hallmark of Apple software.
