1 I'm sure Apple will compensate for removing scripting languages by making sure all their new apps have robust, well-documented AppleScript and Automator support. Oh, wait, they stopped doing that years ago. And Script Editor is broken in this beta anyway.

I like the suggestion that developers bundle scripting languages inside each app. Because what users want is bigger apps with more hidden security issues. I look forward to their future removal of the rest of the "legacy" binaries in /usr/bin.

I really, really like the understated warning about the possibility of losing all your data if you try to install the beta on an encrypted boot partition, with the multi-hour workaround of decrypting the drive, upgrading the OS, and then re-encrypting the drive.

2 In the future, every app will contain its own unique Linux distro.

3 My favorite part is that even the VESA stand adapter for the Mac Pro monitor costs $200.

5 "every app will contain its own unique Linux distro"

Well, this is really just an extension of jwz' claim that applications grow until they contain a full-featured mail client.

Apparently you can get a plain old 200mm VESA wall mount for around $30, and many of those have articulating arms with tilt.  I didn't realize they were that cheap.  (My Skull Canyon NUC--and I think the regular ones but I'm not sure--come with all the mounting hardware to put them on a monitor's VESA mounting holes.  However, I've noticed that a lot of monitors don't really have the ability to USE their mounting holes and the stand at the same time.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
