One little whinge about Sierra

I’m disappointed that Apple hasn’t added a simple, but needed, tweak for Finder. And it’s something that bugged me in Mavericks (I never did upgrade past that on my last machine).

Why is it so hard to have both tabs and new windows at the same time? This has been a feature of Linux for years now, but Apple seems to not want to implement it into macOS (and can I just say that it’s nearly impossible to not call it OS X?).

A bigger whinge for another day is how restrictive macOS is becoming. Like I said the other day, Apple peaked with Snow Leopard and it’s been downhill since then.

I’m not quite ready to move to another OS full time (it pains me to even think of having to use Windows at home), but I’m becoming less and less impressed with it all the time.

GarageBand is a perfect program, but I’m not sure how much longer I will keep using macOS just for it. Especially since there are other DAWs that I’m sure would be beneficial to my musical experiments.

If things get too bad, I guess I could always dual boot a machine. Windows for DAW stuff, Linux for everything. Most of what I use is open source or has an open source equivalent.

But I’m sure every version of the Mac operating system had something I bitched about. And thought was the final straw. But over 14 years later and it’s still my main OS. Go figure.
