That's a weird thread title for sure but I was just thinking about the Macs that I have owned, the ones I own now and the ones that I am considering purchasing and seeing the differences between them all. I started with an early 2009 iMac and have been using Macs almost exclusively ever since. I've owned multiple Intel Macs, and during a pretty difficult financial time period while in college and moving often, I started using PowerPC-based Macs. My latest (Powermac G5 Quad) was sold about 6 months ago and now I have a late 2014 Mac mini. What I have noticed is the movement away from giving the user more options for control of their machines and the future of their machines seems limited. With the new USB-C Macs, Firewire Target disk mode is no longer an option unless the other machine being booted into TDM is running MacOS Sierra. That removes the ability to use that basic function that Macs have had since the G3 to help repair/transfer/reinstall...etc. Now the 2012 model has been discontinued. I see this as a move by Apple to make MacOS much like iOS in so far that the operating system will be signed by Apple and will prevent installing different versions of the OS once you have updated. In addition to the moves made by Apple, I have also noticed other software losing capabilities that I took for granted. Handbrake does not function properly and what used to be a very simple process (backing up my own DVDs to put the movies into my iTunes library) is now touch and go. I find myself now wanting to re-purchase a PPC Mac just to utilize Handbrake again. Sometimes I also look at what is going on with the updating of software and wonder if Apple is either going to rename Safari something related to the cloud or even rely on other vendors to create browsers like they did when Macs were still relying on Microsoft and other 3rd party vendors. Maybe this is all pessimism, but it feels like things are moving away from what I became accustomed to and what I would use a computer for in the future. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this!
