The pain of the modern Apple operating systems

I was a Mac user in very difficult times, between the transition from Motorola microprocessors to Intel CPUs. I experienced the transition from traditional MacOS to the innovative MacOS X and I had a lot of fun as beta-tester for all the new technologies that the Unix world was bringing into the machines of the bitten apple.

The moments of panic that I experienced were certainly not comparable to those I had with the first Windows or with the DOS, but there were. Yes, there were a lot.

Well… would you like to have a laugh?

It seems that those moments are back in Apple and they also seem to remember the early days of Linux in the desktop world.
