Mac OS X

I spend an inordinate amount of time searching for information about macOS. Whether I am researching the answers for my section in MacFormat magazine, or trying to solve my own problems here, I am also daily reminded of Apple's wholesale failure to provide consistent and complete documentation of its flagship product.

The idea you would donate an inordinate amount of time and effort for free to the richest company in the world to perform work they ought to be doing is wholly and completely baffling to me.

Richest *publicly traded company* both the NHS and the federal reserve has more dosh.

Edit: Total worth of apple is $752 Billion, whilst DoHS *(wich is a US federal company) gets almost a trillion dollars per year in funding.

Also for example ICBC and Fannie Mac has over three trillion in assets each. And also Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China and China Construction Bank all have trillions of assets as well.

Richest non-governmental company is Mitsubishi UFJ Financial with 2,5 trillion dollars in assets. And the largest in Europe is HSBC Holdings at $2.3 trillion.
