Gruber hasn't even installed High Sierra on any of his Macs because he knows it's buggy and bad.

He should write about that. Just the fact that he isn't installing Apple's latest Mac operating system after its official release is deserving of some type of article.

It's bad when your biggest evangelist won't install or write about the latest release.

The author's main point is correct, though. Apple did turn to open ecosystems (Intel, Mach, BSD) mainly to get better performance, and this move did revive the Mac.

Grubered it up again, he did.

And now they're tryign to (poorly) pull a Microsoft by abandoning OpenGL and Vulkan, and focusing on Metal. The worst part of High Sierra is the terrible Metal implementation of windowserver, resulting in common bugs like this, from Ars Technica's review:

That's a great way to put it. Pulling a Microsoft. Excellent.
