Dear Admin, please move MacPro forum to Wasteland. Please stop flogging a dead horse.
But, even if the Mac Pro is a dead product line, many of us continue to get a lot of use out of the ones we have. So a forum to discuss possible updates, repairs, and troubleshooting is still worthwhile.
Yes, we can't hold Apple responsible for actually building something worthwhile once upon a time.
Not saying that we shouldn't expect Apple to stop selling a 2013 nMP at a price premium that reflects the latest technology.
But, it's Apple. They'll sell it until it won't sell. And once they've cleared out all inventory, they'll likely discontinue it.
It is time for Apple to either release an update, or announce that they're leaving the market.
But regardless of whether any new machines are ever built. Even if Apple was to totally shut down the company tomorrow. It still benefits the users that already own Mac Pro computers to have a place / forum to discuss their machines, exchange ideas on how to update / upgrade them, and how to continue to get the most productive use out of their investment.
While it might be advisable to abandon the company named Apple, it serves no purpose to abandon the user's who already own the existing products.
If it wasn't for the encouragement I found on this forum I would not be enjoying my highly upgraded Mac Pro1,1.
So I hope the forum remains as a top notch site for support and ideas for existing MP users.
There are still active Amiga and Atari computer online user forums.
My two 5,1 Mac Pro's are still running a great race.
I have, & still am, learning much from this forum.
Please ignore post #1.
It's the old "Cutting off your nose to spite your face" thing.
Nobody's more annoyed at Apple than I am for abandoning my workstation needs, yet I'm still doing lots of work with my old MacPros, so I'm happy they're still in business and prospering, at least I can glean what little support is still available from them.
I'm sure both they and Adobe (two "A" companies I once respected, who are now "Holes" in my book) are hard at work figuring out how to kill off legacy users, so everybody drinks the Kool-Aid and tows the party line, asking for more Emojis, USB-C Dongles, Tiny Overpriced-Underspecced Computer Wannabes or whatever the hell it is they do now.
This forum provides a valuable service to those who still have Mac Pro computers so please leave it open.
Some are flogging a Rotten Apple!
I never used a Mac Pro, but I find this part of these forums to be among the most helpful and generous. So, for a lurker who appreciates that model and the folks who still have their old ones running, please keep this part of the forum open.
we need to have self-help for mac pro users.
No, we need to have a 12-step program for Mac Pro users.
No we need a new 22 core Mac Pro.
We need Tim to resign.
Maybe this forum should be renamed to "Build a Hackintosh Tutorials"
There is an "Ignore forum" link below "Post new thread button" if it hurts you that much.
