Mac really has jumped the usability shark and gone completely into the "extort subscription out of users" mode. Charlene is describing some of her frustrations this morning, and... she's ready to go back to Linux.

I'm sure missing Linux.

I don't want to buy new laptops for all of the direct cost and ewaste and consumerism reasons, but as much as we bought these machines so we can run my work product on them, Mac is just too non-deterministic about UI features for everyday use.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
