Mac OS X Yosemite preview

It’s Mac OS X system time change again people, so look smart! Are there enough bells and whistles in this version of Mac OS X Yosemite to make you want to upgrade to the newest, hottest OS X yet, at the risk of your older programs not functioning well? If you are a Final Cut X user, you won’t have to worry. However, if you use Avid, Premiere or anything that’s not Apple-owned, you may be in for a big surprise. After all, having loyalty to users has never been Apple’s strong point. As the famous musician Frank Zappa noted on one of his albums, “Pop Eats Its Young.” This has always been the case when it comes to Apple. The abandonment of loyalty in pursuit of $$$. That’s not to say that there isn’t any improvement in the newer version of an Apple product. It’s just that Apple has a way of leaving customers hanging with no choice except to abandon the old in favor of the new, more popular item. The absence of loyalty means that “Pop Eats Its Young.” But enough with the rant. OS X is still the most likable OS on the planet and Mac OS X will probably be even more loved that is, until the next version of it surfaces.

Mac OS X Yosemite promises a visual overhaul although it’s always looked good to me. However, now users can feel as though they are actually getting something new instead of just a different splash screen that is not always well-liked. Of course, lately the best part about a new OS X has been that it’s free. But what one can count on, is the fact that this OS will be more tightly woven into the Apple iOS ecosystem. This promises more bells and whistles for users of other Apple products. Dieter Bohn says in the piece he has written for the Verge:

The first thing that strikes you when you log in to Yosemite is how much brighter and cleaner everything is. First impressions matter, and Apple makes a good one. The dock is a simple, rounded rectangle filled with colorful icons. They’re bold yet detailed, but they come right up to the edge of looking cartoonish, which could put off some people. But they’re not as extreme as the icons in iOS, and no fooling, that new Trash icon is gorgeous.

I’m positive that every time there’s an upgrade to OS X, it gets a little better. However, you’ll have to let me know what you think, because I have no intention of upgrading anytime soon.

Back to the Mac, again

This fall, the 11th consumer version of Mac OS X will be released, for free. OS X 10.10 is better known as Yosemite, and the main thing you need to know about it is that it’s a big visual redesign. All of the features and functionality we’ve come to expect from Macs are still here, but they have a new look that’s closer to the redesign we saw last month on iPhones and iPads with iOS 8.
