    The [Upset about] Sierra Thread

    What in the world is this obsession with updating to every new Mac Os as it comes out? In particular MacOS Sierra?
    Will it mix your music for you? Maybe its because I've spent too much of my life on the Bleeding edge, but I'd rather work with an OS that has been proven to be solid!
    Then again if it weren't for you Bleeding edgers out there, the OS's would never become solid, so.......
    Carry On!

    I seem to recall that somebody commented that it would be easier and better if Apple just changed "the damn font" every couple of years ...

    There you go, but society has embraced the constant update mentality. I'm certainly more old school in my approach. 10.8.5 on the production systems here and very happy.

    Oh don't get me started. I've been on mac since the beginning, and always used to update the OS the day it came out. And everything still worked and the OS added so much useful stuff. Over the last several years it's been a disaster. I'm still on 10.9 on my machines and quite happy. My wife has a new laptop with 10.11 installed and I hate it. It's a new MacBook. I hate the hardware, and the software is so damn bloated. What used to be simple tasks are now so damn convoluted it's becoming like windows. It took me hours to go through things and shut "features" off so she could use it without calling on me every 15 minutes to help. I truly feel their end goal is to make everything an iPhone. Steve Jobs must be itching like crazy where ever he is.

    I tried 10.9 for a few days back in the day. I had been running 10.7 at the time. Went straight back.

    When Yosemite was out for a few months I gave that one a go. Much better.

    I tried a later version of EC on a test machine. It's convoluted and features have been absolutely destroyed (like Disk Utility!).

    Questions is: for how much longer will be able to run a fast, stable and reliable pro audio machine on a Mac? Mountain Lion (released under 4 years ago) was the last solid OS release and has now been dropped by everyone as they have to scramble to qualify their products with the yearly insane OS release, so the 4th OS behind gets dropped, where the 7 year old Windows 7 is still supported industry wide!

    I don't want to fuel a mac vs pc debate, this is just a real concern for us peeps on Mac. It is compounded by UA tying in their drivers with plugin releases. If I want to stay on 10.8.5, UAD v8.6 will most probably be the last release to actually let me install the UAD software and have access to the new plugins. The alternative is to upgrade to Mavericks, which will be dropped in a years time when Apple releases the next yearly OS joke! Sigh

    You're absolutely right about the OS issues that we have with Apple... I have found Yosemite to be a really stable release... I just hope, like you, that I can keep with my current Mac and OS and be able to update UA for a while yet

    I will be moving to Yosemite when my hand is forced as well. I've used it for a bit in my mobile rig and found it to be a solid OS. What I really miss is Leopard and Snow Leopard. Those were the days...

    OK, and what's with the damn naming of the OS? I mean, come on! I can't keep track of the names. If I click about this mac, it say OS X version 10.9.5. So I'm supposed to google os 10.9.5 so I know the name of it. Ridiculous. What's wrong with a number? It's an OS, not a mountain range or an animal.

    I think most people, like me, have a much better memory for names than for numbers. I honestly wish more companies would use real world names for their products.
