Why is it too early then? This might actually be the most important change with macOS 12 since it affects a lot of stuff. The rest - at least what was presented in the keynote - was a bit underwhelming imho.

IMO most of the stuff that was introduced in OS X ... MacOS are for Generation X kids, I don't think we as in working people will use most of it.

 

For example the auto-login part, most enterprise users and/or folks who work with sensitive data will have a big hell no moment.

 

Universal clipboard is a neat feature, but honestly, how many of you will actually use it? And the new messages.... oh boy ... for me I'd like to read the text not guess Egyptian style iconography. Aren't we as humans suppose to progress not regress, but hey.. who am I to judge.

I'm curious about the tabs everywhere feature. Wonder if/how it will work with audio apps like Ableton Live. Could be useful to have multiple projects open in that at the same time.

Yeah, thats exactly the reason why I am not that impressed with a lot of the new stuff. Same goes for iOS 10. Biggest update ever, really? ... and most of the time they spent with iMessage gimmicks like throbbing bubbles, super big emojis and flying hearts. Young girls will love it, though.

The only thing that Apple knew how to do in recent years was to make OS X a bloated operating system.

Whats also interesting is that they did not mention the new file system at all in the presentation. I mean such a fundamental change and no word about it?

Yup, I guess Apple as a company went from Let's-copy-that-sh.. I mean let's innovate (but I will give them credit where credit is due, they did come up with some neat stuff) to I'm out of original ideas so let's smoke and trow some stuff at the wall and maybe, maybe some of it will stick.

Because Apple became a consumer company for the people with attention span of a gold fish, they don't read, just show them the pretty pictures and crayons to color it.

 

Off-topic: Have you seen the video on the youtube that young girl (college age) having a hard time figuring out how far will you go in an hour if you're driving at 80 miles per hour?

Because it's not ready. It won't be launching until next year (presumably as part of 10.13). I'm sure they'll make a thing out of it then.

FS?

Haven't touched it. Probably won't as it's case sensitive and it doesn't work on a fusion drive and it can't be a startup disk. :)

Yeah but I thought WWDC had something to do with developers? A developer with attention span of a goldfish that can't read? Doesn't developing require at least some kind of intelligence?

 

Ohhh wait. I think such people actually exist. I heard they created a software called "windows" :D

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows
