Absolutely pathetic deflection going on here.

The reason to stick with Apple is that Windows/Android is at least as shitty. Snow Leopard was a high point, though.

Underlying it all is the sense that the changes Apple has made in the past few years have made their software worse, not better.

We, your readers, are well familiar with how Apple's software used to compare to offerings from competitors as well as their own last version.

If anything, Apple's software become marked by two qualities: arbitrary design decisions and bad taste.

Let's withhold judgement on their hardware until we see what Thursday brings us. We're all excited for a new MacBook Pro. Steve Jobs almost certainly signed off on the last MacBook Pro, introduced in June 2012. What will the first post-Steve MBP bring?

My apologies on behalf of all anonymous, we, your readers, are well aware the the changes Apple has made to their software set it apart from competitors in a good way, putting Apple far ahead and way more superior than anything else that exist in this world.

+1 on the arbitrary design and bad taste.

examples of this bad taste? and remember, taste is subjective.

How about functional regressions?

The timer app puts a pull-down notification at the top of the screen, which you have to pull down to get the stop button. This happens even if you're in the timer app.

OS X notifications are a shit show. Non-admins do not need to receive notification every day that a new version of the OS is available. Especially if they can't be dismissed without opening the stupid App store.

Notifications of updates drive me fucking crazy in OS X as well as iOS.
