You're using the wrong display. It looks great on HiDPI displays.

>> No.67342234

That you need a high-dpi for fonts to look okay is NOT a quality of the macos font rendering
In fact it demonstrates how poor it is

>> No.67342239

I think anyone reasonable will agree that it's leagues ahead of Windows, but calling it the best is a stretch.

Citation needed. Mine sucks at connecting to jewtooth. Sometimes USB drivers crash and have to restart. Begs for system updates all the time. Xcode, not even once. .DS_Store files up in my directories, fuck finder DESU. Program minimize and close buttons are on the stupid side. SIGN INTO APPLE ANON, IF YOU DONT SIGN INTO APPLE ITS A CRISIS. Hurrr Safari yes use our browse goy. "pip install awscli"?, lol fuck you we have uninstallable .py packages justfor your INCONVENIENCE.

I mean I still use MacOS but its definitely not the best OS. I vote for Fedora tbph familam, *tips Fedora*. But I also havent used Fedora in a long time. Windows 10 is ok for some things but god damn does windows piss me off sometimes.

>smudgy and unsharp
There's a setting for that, turn it off. Though to be fair it's the high pixel density more than anything that gives the good fonts, that and the god-tier helvetica-neue font variations.


>> No.67342486

Even windows font rendering looks great on HiDPI displays. It is the most trivial way to increase font rendering quality, add more pixels.
If your fonts look only good on HiDPI displays then the font rendering is infact pretty shitty.

>> No.67342488

seriously what's the deal with finder? this is by far the worst file explorer I've ever used since the new millenium.

well maybe old nautilus back when clicking a folder was opening a new window was worse... but that's all I can think about.

>> No.67342496

What are peoples' problems with finder? I find it easier to navigate than windows explorer, only fault I can see is the lack of a shown file path.

>> No.67342643

lack of a shown file path is one
Everything is too small. It kind of fit with the rest of the UI but it makes browsing files unpleasant. In comparison Nautilus and Windows Explorer use a lot more space and it breathe. It feels like they forgot to adapt Finder to bigger screens as their products evolved.
I don't understand the views or I can't configure it to how I like. I remember searching how to display folders first and I don't think I succeeded.
Can't cut only copy
Can't delete
I think they expect me to use their search function to locate my files instead of browsing directories like an ancient dinosaur but I'm kind of used to it.
Anyway if I could swap Finder with Nautilus on my mac I would do it in an instant

>> No.67342823

The size issue is much worse not with large screens, but with small high-DPI screens. With a retina macbook this is often an issue with third-party software more than anything. Cut is just the equivalent of drag-and-drop, but often one is more convenient than the other. But I dislike cut solely because people use it as a delete.

Years ago there was a "pathfinder" application (Power PC days) that improved some things.

This is what it looks like you are saying.
High-DPI displays are cheap and plentiful now, pony up and enjoy the nice text.

I liked it back around 2010 when i had an iMac. Hackintosh is just not worth it when alternatives exist that don't break on updates (basically anything except Arch and Hackintosh).

For me, I dual boot Windows and today i just installed FreeBSD.

What is qemu/kvm+pci passthrough?

Also having to "bless" your shit and having to modify manually your fstab to properly use msdos formatted devices is bullshit.

try and run a linux mpv build on macos. It could theorically work if you install and resolve every dependency by hand but that wouldn't really count as being """linux compatible"""
