This is why I had to swap.
Dont get me wrong Apple offers great products and excellent software , but, and yes iI find it a massive but after 7 years, my excellent Imac wont update to the latest operating system, Yes I get the technical patches but I cant use the latest versions of my programs and I have to suffer death by a thousand cuts as new programs are frozen out.
I have also got fed up with pissing about with Apple only writing to its own disk system which wont be read by much else, perhaps it is the best disk op system but please let me get down and dirty with other systems.
Then there is the ludicrous audio codec situation, if it aint Apple lossless you cant use the the most world popular loss loss system,
Add to that the total lock down of accesories and spares and even programs, I baled out and switched Linux (Mint).
(Mint) is flawless, happy to work with anything and adaptable.
I am not short of cash I dont mind paying extra for a quality product which Apple is, but I am completely pissed off with being forced down a one way road that locks me into what it thinks is good for me, or what is clearly good for it.,
Try Linux. It is no longer the prerogative of the technical wizard, it actually lets you do what you want, POWER TO THE PEOPLE !
