Apple's hardware today is amazing - it has never been better. But the software quality has taken such a nosedive in the last few years that I'm deeply concerned for its future. I'm typing this on a computer whose existence I didn't even think would be possible yet, but it runs an OS riddled with embarrassing bugs and fundamental regressions. Just a few years ago, we would have relentlessly made fun of Windows users for these same bugs on their inferior OS, but we can't talk anymore.

Apple has completely lost the functional high ground. "It just works" was never completely true, but I don't think the list of qualifiers and asterisks has ever been longer. We now need to treat Apple's OS and application releases with the same extreme skepticism and trepidation that conservative Windows IT departments employ.

It took them a little longer than the rest of us, but even Apple bloggers are starting to see the obvious.

That image of a generic dialog is in a '2012' folder on a random Wordpress site. Windows 8.1 was released as a public beta in June 2013 and the final code was released in August of 2013. How is that image germane to your original (and highly questionable) statement about copying files in Windows 8.1?
