If you ask anyone who knows me, I'm probably the biggest Apple fan they know. Ask for a suggestion of what computer to get, and I'll almost certainly either tell you the MacBook Pro, or to wait, because Apple is about to update its hardware finally.

But recently, I realized I'd gotten tired of Apple's attitude toward the desktop. The progress in macOS land has basically been dead since Yosemite, two years ago, and Apple's updates to the platform have been incredibly small. I'm a developer, and it seems to me Apple doesn't pay any attention to its software or care about the hundreds of thousands of developers that have embraced the Mac as their go-to platform.

Something's obviously afoot in Mac land.

I just don't understand the complaints about's a great OS. I'm a developer too and I only use macOS to do iOS/Android/Windows development (thanks Parallels).

Windows has gotten better and I like some of the things MS is doing. But, there is nothing wrong with macOS. It's a Unix based OS that is just a pleasure to use.

Yes, I would like to see touch integrated, but I won't be touching my screen all day...I leave that interaction with my phone or tablet.
