Catalina Vista

The macOS Catalina situation seems to be pretty bad. My biggest reasons for upgrading are Apple Arcade and Reminders, but in return I’d have to:

  • give up Photoshop CS6
  • give up a bunch of games on my Steam library
  • deal with my old Aperture libraries as the app is finally broken
  • learn a new shell, or replace it
  • fix all the tooling stuff that will break due to the new read-only system volume
  • put up with all the permission annoyances
  • deal with all the damn bugs

Marco Arment’s take on ATP is right: “not enough carrot to take the stick”. For the first time ever I might actually skip a major version of macOS.
