Would've been using it since years ago if Visual Studio for Mac OS was as good as it is for Windows.

Four finger swipe.
You could also assign to a corner ("hot corner") and drag the mouse cursor there.
Or you can use the dedicated button on the F-key row.

Not a fan. I used it for a while on an actual Apple laptop and then later on a hackintosh because I needed Xcode for work. iToddlers love to shit on the Linux desktop experience but the asinine window manager that comes with it can't even tile, some applications don't full screen properly, and the red close button usually keeps the program running but sometimes kills it entirely. there's zero consistency to the user interface. for development, the third party package manager called Homebrew is a slow, clunky hacked together piece of shit. The actual base system is a weird mix of BSD, GNU, and Apple's in-house crap which they actively hide from the user in the file manager, which is fucking infuriating. To add insult to injury, the base system is also less POSIX compliant than Linux or BSD despite having official certifications.

FagOS is a bad joke and there's nothing you can do with it that you can't do with Ubuntu and WINE. Xcode? Worthless unless you want to develop for Apple's trash ecosystem. Apple's Logic Poop audio production suite and Final Crap video editing shartware? Also useless. Professionals don't actually use this shit.

>> No.81490406

I unironically love this system for how extremely neat it is under the hood and I wish you could legally run it on non-apple hardware.
It's not even like I'm a poorfag that can't afford Macbook or whatever, they're just generally not powerful enough for the kind of work I do.

Just how Apple describes it.

OS X combines a proven UNIX® foundation with the easy-to-use Mac interface.

It's really great, this is why so many programmers and creative persons use it.

>scrolling up actually moves the content down and viceversa
The scrolling is literally reversed from what windows and linux do.
But that's not the only thing, you can't select multiple words with ctrl+arrow, can't ctrl+shift+v in terminal, close button doesn't closes the application, double click on the application bar changes size instead of maximizing, maximizing changes virtual desktop and puts it on F11 state, have to input CLI command to view hidden files, 3GB used with only safari and vscode open, slow as fuck for everything (that's why they put nvme ssds on macs), set up default keyboard on setup literally changes to something else when on desktop having to change it again, takes literally a hard minute to sync with the ntp server, developer options hidden on safari by default, safari doesn't support lookbehind regexes (which was the issue I had to solve).
Do I continue?

I feel the same about the windowing system. It feels very clunky. I see people deal with it by full screening. The animation to switch between full screen windows is so damn long though.

For the most part its been just as buggy as anything else, but for a little while the whole integrated ecosystem that they were selling actually WORKED and didn't fuck up literally everyday and that was kinda nice. Since 2019 iCloud has been almost completely unusable for me.

worse because half of them are running garbage gamer ware (iCue, RGB shit). I'm hovering around 4.0 on idle. Desktop Linux with a GUI isn't much better, unless it's xfce or something.

i work in it servicedesk and laugh my ass off every time some fagbook looser calls inn for some assistance, they always secretly know that i am not going to help them as they have no enterprise support so they always try to avoid telling me that its a shitbook tm for the 10 first minutes until i start pushing them to get on remote session. last one had some issues with launching apps in citrix bla bla, anyway i checked what type of a machine he has assigned from work and this nigga has a lenovo threadripper p620 with the following specs:
>AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3955WX Processor (3.90 GHz, up to 4.30 GHz Max Boost, 16 Cores, 32 Threads, 64 MB Cache)

Bought a Macbook Pro M1 (8GB) a few months ago, and I'm going to sell it. Why?
1. Tiny screen. I knew that before buying it of course but actually trying to live with such a small screen for a while is a big downgrade to lifestyle and productivity.
2. No games. Really a disastrously bad gaming situation.
3. Lies about performance. While in general performance was good, there were frequent instances of lag / slowness. For example, opening Pages. While "okay" in general the fact is I get instantaneous with my PC with almost no instances of lag / slowness.

My view is, if it cost $600 it would be very compelling. But for over 2x the price I expected more. Ultimately I'm spoiled by the PC so take it with a grain of salt.

OS X is provably less secure than Linux


The only mitigation to that on OS X is a patch fixing the hole.

On Linux you can contain root, essentially making root not root making tricks like that useless. Selinux likely would stop that from working due to a label mismatch as well.

No. Viruses exist for every os.

I have to use it at work and I hate it. I can't stand the way it forces shit down my throat. It's literally a castrated BSD with heaps and heaps of shit packed onto it. I get the appeal from a tech illiterate consoomer's perspective, it does indeed just work. But that's about it. Being forcefed a pre-manufactured piece of shit is the literal opposite of 'think different' and anyone in 'tech' that defends this steaming pile of horseshit should do the needful and fucking drown themselves
