What are your thoughts about Mac OS X being released with a new update every year? In my opinion, yearly releases have affected OS X quality A LOT. The design and features are rushed, because they don't have time since they have to work on next year's version as soon as possible. There has been a lot of inconsistencies due to the rushed release. When OS releases took several years, it allowed Apple to really focus on little details and deliver a finished product. Yes, it was never perfect, but it was a polished product when it came out. I remember when they released Leopard. It was the first OS with a major design overhaul and it was done near perfectly. This time, with the new design of Yosemite, it's all over the place, with icons being inconsistent with the design, and features not working properly; Dark Mode look horrible (at least in non-retina Macs). There is a lot of things that need to be fixed. However, features and design inconsistencies will take several updates to be fixed since they have so little time to address them. If they leave one icon looking like the old design, it could take until 10.12 (will they keep going with 10.XX after Yosemite?) to get changed. What I'm trying to say, is that for a computer OS, I think it's no good to get major updates so fast. If they will keep releasing OS X each year, they should have like two or three teams, so that the actual development of the OS would be 2 or 3 years. Another thing that I miss about having to wait longer for OS X releases, is that they usually came with new Macs. So whenever you had to buy a new Mac, it would probably came with the new OS. (my Macs last 4 to 5 years). At least OS X is now free. That's a good thing.
