Catalina is causing issues on quite a number of forums. My concern is more due to the growing lockout from the core of my own system. Every update makes it harder to access the core of my macos.

In terms of upgrading the old adage of don’t fix what isn’t broken applies. Because apple offer the OS upgrade for free, somehow people feel they need to upgrade. My experience is that each new macos is buggier than the one before. When I used Tiger there was rarely a beachball, now I see them all the time. Also things like Facetime just don’t work consistently. The camera often refuses to come on without a restart. I read a recent report that stated apple now have a 48% markup on their products. I’m not sure I’ll be able to afford a new one when the time comes and am already thinking about what I’ll do (certainly not microsoft). Might need to try a Hackintosh or Linux.
