Apple Core Rot: File Sharing Crashes all My Machines When Connecting eg "SOCD report detected: (iBoot panic)"

re: Apple Core Rot

I can no longer use file sharing with macOS Monterey (12.6.5) or macOS Ventura. This has been true for at least 6 weeks now.

Happens on 2019 iMac 5K (Monterey), 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max (Monterey), or 2022 MacBook Pro M2 Max (Ventura).

In each case the dreaded spinning beachball of death appears and a hard reboot is the only option.

The hang seems to occur mainly when attempting to mount the server’s boot volume or home folder, but it might not be limited to that.

Upon reboot, there is this "helpful" message in the crash log (on M1 Max):

... which translates to “we at Apple are incompetent at keeping basic features working”.

There is ample internet misinformation about this issue. I can state unequivocally that it has nothing to do with Apple Silicon, since it happens on my 2019 iMac 5K also.

Shame on Apple for letting key functionality be broken for so long.

What hope for AI when non-artificial non-intelligence writes it?

I have to wonder whether artificial intelligence (aka woke mimicry) has any future when the underlying platform is total crap in terms of reliability. All my Apple software is dumber than a rock, so AI looks many years off at this point since there is not even any non-artificial intelligence in Apple software.

Then again, pattern-matching AI may be able to find bugs that humans cannot or are not funded to find. Why isn’t Apple at the forefront of that effort?
