I’ve always wondered: how does it feel to be an Apple macOS developer?
You can’t isolate yourself from the ‘official’ bug reports, or the ‘unofficial’, but very vocal and public grudges on Twitter, about the character / emojis palette random misbehavior since, when, 2014?
Or can you? 🤔
Each morning, you enter the magnificent ring-office of a company making ≈100 BILLION USD of income YEARLY… sit down in a super-ergonomic office chair in front of a decked-out, all in-house, state-of-the-art ARM hardware, open a rather impressive suite of dev tools and languages like Swift… and… the bug (and public outrage) persists.
The Music.app loses in functionality with each iteration (like, hide tracks by keyword?!), your users can’t listen to the audiobooks playing fine in Books.app on their fancy Apple Watches, the Finder.app still pales in comparison to MacOS Classic spatial awareness.
How do feel? OK? Or Tim Cook’s We’re So Excited™? Or do you Think Indifferent™?
