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.

Recursively.

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.

The firearms crowd has already left for their own platforms ( full30.com, etc ).

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