OSX Yosemite 10.10.3 & Apple

I finally have been using OSX 10.10 for a while on my main computer, i solved my eyes/eyesight problem (because of the too-light interface and its lack of contrast) i had with a tiny app that let’s me better control the luminosity of my external screen. I end up switching to 10.10 because of a security vulnerability in 10.9 that Apple won’t fix (Thanks Apple). I’m still not sure of my decision.

I still don’t really like much some parts of the interface of 10.10 but it’s not the worse… (There are also things i like in 10.10…)

Although i noticed recently that the boot times are now longer… Not great, but okay…

And, it’s seems like I, too, now have inherited those famous WIFI problems (that should be resolved if we were to trust Apple), as the WIFI on my MBP has been almost unusable since one or two days, for times, it’s like i’m browsing the web of 2015 with a 56k modem of 1995, or around. The wifi seems to work properly on Linux and Windows…

I’m not really happy about this…

This plus the fact that the newer Macs are even less upgradable (RAM & HDD/SDD), that there are a lot of decisions about OSX that I don’t like (i’ll see if Apple fix things with the next OS X, although i fear they won’t have time to debug half of 10.10 before they release 10.11), the politics of Apple pushing devs to always use the latest OSX/XCode/SDKs etc without caring at all for backward-compatibility, which forces users to always update, not always for the best, and in the end forces users to buy new hardware…

I think my next computer won’t be another Mac/Macbook.
