Yep, just install windows 10, use it, don't screw with it and you have the best OS available.
MacOS Big Sur is spying on everything you do and sending the data to Apple notebookcheck.net | Yesterday
Apple's macOS Big Sur is spying on you
Apple's latest operating system, macOS Big Sur, uses a new API to constantly send users' data (including how, when, and where a Mac is used) to Apple. This data is transmitted to Apple without encryption, meaning anyone with access to the same network as the Mac can see the information.
As Jeffrey Paul states, your MacBook is no longer yours.
It leaves OS X behind in name only. Still functions exactly the 20 year old OS that it is.
Time to go (back to) Linux I guess.
Yep. All the spying going on behind users back, in the dark, not knowing it's happening. At least you know whats happening with W10 and android. I can just imagine what's happening with iOS.
What ever Apple calls it, it is still at the core a version of BSD right so it technically by definition is the same thing, they just tweaked it to run a certain way so you have to buy new hardware every 3 years for an OS that should run on 30 year old hardware.
I will stick with my Next Cube and Next Step for Intel with the Mach kernal....... it just needs to be updated for 28 core processors, 8k displays, nvme's, etc, etc, etc
I assume that eventually parts for the NextCube are going to be hard to come by.
1,000 percent growth: malware is becoming a growing problem for macOS notebookcheck.com
macOS is apparently becoming an increasingly attractive target for cyber criminals. According to a recent study, a growth rate of 1,000 percent was observed last year....
I call BS on this story. Everyone knows MacOS is impenetrable to outside hacking, virius, malware attacks. Come on, that's the oldest knowledge out there about Macs. NO VIRUSES.
