Can relate this experience, esp UX horror, on my macbook air.
Return that mac get the refund.
philcr31804yMy experience of OSX is the hackintosh I use for xamarin iOS builds. The hackintosh in a VM requires careful handling so as not to break it
I use Ubuntu, Windows and osx at the same time. And I like all of them equally but hate none of them. OSX does have its flaws but Windows and Ubuntu too. Snapping more than 2 windows makes in most situations jo sense, especially on a laptop. Those monitors are way to small to see enough content. You may want to increase the rendering dimensions tho...
You didn't spell "all" correctly in your point about rebooting after an update. #kappa
Tobio2784yPay attention! Someone will arrive to say that it's just impossible. It happened just because you don't know "how to hold it".
M really surprised by this. I had been using Windows/Ubuntu my whole student life until I got a Mac when I joined my first company. As a dev, I have the highest appreciation for the stability in the Mac os. I never faced any issues during my last 2 years. Maybe my specs are too high to face these issues?
ytho11134yWell yeah the latest MBP is just a POS... there's been many problems with it but as far as your behavior complaints:
You can maximize windows without going full screen by holding down option and the full screen icon is now a maximize icon, but personally I like the full screen feature because sometimes the toolbars can get distracting.
There is a split screen feature in macOS. Some apps support this. When the first app is full screen, open mission control and drag the second window onto the first app's screen.
And finally, the thing about macOS is there is an option to turn off inverted scrolling. I'm used to it and I wish it were an option in windows but I can't find it.
Your other complaints about the software I agree with: the multi-monitor and the awake-while-lid-closed complaints. Your other problems are probably just the new 2016 MBP.
Kimmax117524yEven apt locks if run, so only one instance is running only. Sure, it can install multiple programs at once, but that's because it knows what packages want to do and detect conflicts before they would happen. Running another apt instance while another one is running blocks too.
It's just impractical to install 2 programs at once, without the system knowing what's about to happen. You would need a serious file / registry locking party which only makes things way more complicated and still you could end up in a deadlock.
Some things just shouldn't be changed :D
bioDan56654yMost of the epxeriences you listed '&ve experienced too, so i feel you bro. I also got a brand new mac from work.
However, about 2 weeks later of using it daily i was hooked, and you will too if you learn to use it productively to your needs.
I'm no big in the "Linux vs Win vs Mac" wars because i know how to use all of them and i would choose to work on either on the base on my intention: "what do i want to achieve"
