Ummm, heck no!
Seriously? With 100% perfection? No. Neither can any other OS developer.Good grief!!! Can't they get things right the first time? This won't effect a ton of people, but wow...
So, I'm thinking of waiting 2 weeks before updating any Apple OS. How many are thinking/doing likewise?
Yet it's still quirky. I have a Windows 10 system that refuses to update to maintain supportability. It goes throught he update process over and over and always fails. I spent nearly an entire day tracking down the crumbs in the logs, and 'fixed' everything appropriate, and it STILL won't install the update. Windows 10 also has a hard time 'seeing' printers on the network. There is one that it just won't connect to, yet a different system had no problems. *shrug*I also have to say Windows feels very solid now. At least from my testing. So it's not what it used to be anymore.
it affects anyone trying to make bootable backups to protect against machine failures, which is actually something that anyone who relies on their machine to make a living should be doing.so outside of people trying to steal Apple IP to load newer MacOS versions on older systems or create hack-instoshes it must be a very small community of people that's affected by this.
Yeah, a client we had was sold on their vertical app's 'New cloud based support'. They were sold the idea that putting everything in the cloud would 'solve all of their IT problems'. Ans also not have to employ IT support people locally. We had a meeting, which was nice. They laid it on the table and asked my opinion. I could tell they were sold, so I just said 'give it a try, but be prepared for issues'. One person scoffed at my comment.Ummm, heck no!
I've been creating new cloud-based workloads and migrating existing on premise servers/systems to "the cloud" since 2007 at work.
If you have the income stream to pay Apple to backup to the cloud plus purchase software subscriptions with others and pay every month in perpetuity, go for it. At home, I'm still running perpetual licensed products and only use local storage to backup my systems (along with running a number of Docker virtual hosts on Raspberry Pi 3 & 4 hardware). 5TB of reasonably fast hybrid (flash and spinning HD) external storage can be had for ~$100.00 or so.
Cloud apps and storage are no panacea. Adobe clobbered themselves and everyone who uses Creative Cloud quite nicely yesterday.
Either you have no clue what you're doing, or are working with junk hardware as Windows 10 is extremely stable. Believe me, I'm also an IT for almost 20 years, and Windows 10 is really very stable. My clients rarely have Windows 10 issues (cannot blame MS or Windows for 3rd party app issues). As a matter of fact, I had a client that was a mix of Windows and macOS and BY FAR we had more issues with the Mac users than the Windows users. BY FAR.
Not sure I follow your logic. Are you suggesting that anybody attempting to make a bootable backup does it with the intention to steal Apple’s IP?so outside of people trying to steal Apple IP to load newer MacOS versions on older systems or create hack-instoshes it must be a very small community of people that's affected by this.
I hear you.“Suffice it to say, though, I'm extremely disappointed that Apple would introduce this kind of bug in a dot-release OS update. We've seen 5 major updates to Catalina now, we should expect to see higher quality than this from an operating system.”
You said it buddy.
When I purchased my late 2015 iMac with El Capitan pre-installed, it worked wonderfully right out of the box...until the 10.11.3 update which suddenly caused the machine to spontaneously restart pretty much everyday whether it was being used or not. Every subsequent update had no impact on the bug until the release of Sierra which like magic suddenly resolved the issue. Not a single spontaneous restart after Sierra (and all of it’s subsequent updates) was installed. But it was a long long unpleasant wait...
Sierra remains on my machine because every subsequent macOS release from High Sierra to current has created issues not present in Sierra and I’ve tried them all. Nothing as serious as the spontaneous restart issue and maybe things a lot of people wouldn’t notice, but nonetheless a steady accumulation of things that we’re regressions. But the bottom line is I have no interest in having my machine operate in a way that is less than the way it operated when I first purchased it and that’s been the case up to and including the current macOS release.
I've done this several times, and I'm not 'stealing', or creating a Frankenstein 'fake Mac'. Good grief...Not sure I follow your logic. Are you suggesting that anybody attempting to make a bootable backup does it with the intention to steal Apple’s IP?
I think he's trying to say that the hackintosh systems are made by modifying a cloned disk. It can be done that way but that's not the only way. The macOS installer is the normal method.Not sure I follow your logic. Are you suggesting that anybody attempting to make a bootable backup does it with the intention to steal Apple’s IP?
I love these non-answer answers.
Spoken like someone who doesn't know a thing about the problem.Ok, so an error flag wasn’t set properly.
This reminds me of an old saying, “Sometimes even the monkey falls out of the tree.”
Fix it and move on.
I hope this is sarcasm or you are just being a troll. If you are relying on the cloud for backups you do not run a business or rely on mission critical data. But please keeping posting your inanity.
You are the most ideal customer Apple can have.
This has come up before, and the workaround that has been repeatedly reported is to turn off Power Nap in settings, to get rid of the reboots. I can’t say if this works, because my Mac isn’t new enough to run Catalina, or have the problem, or have Power Nap.Aah..could we please just get a stable release at WWDC. No new features. Just fix what is there.
My 16” MBP has had wonderful sleep issues (every time I put it to sleep for more than 4 hours it’ll reboot randomly in that period.) Amazing machine otherwise...but sleep was one of the most solid features in every mac laptop i’ve owned since my first plastic Intel Macbook. And in 2020 somehow they’ve screwed that up.
Exactly my thoughts, I'm still on Mojave...I do usually wait 4-6 weeks after the initial release to see if there are issues. 10.5.5 LOOKED promising...but again I waited a few days to see if issues pop up. And here we are.Wow what is going on with Apple’s software QC process these days? I have never sat out an entire MacOS release before. I thought 10.15.5 would finally be stable enough to get me to upgrade from Mojave. But apparently not. And iOS 13 still has bugs that have been present since the first beta (looking at you, Mail). Something is really broken over at Apple right now.
Whilst I've upvoted, I'll say your post is more subjective than it is accurate. It may have been miles ahead, but now......This is so accurate! Catalina is a truly terrible release, but I seriously cannot comprehend the praise Microsoft gets for Windows 10... In my experience as a software developer, macOS is still miles ahead of Windows.
