Every year Apple releases their beta for iOS & MacOS I get impatient and update to the beta, then eventually downgrade because of a bug, which is expected.

This time around I couldn’t remove the beta update even after wiping my hard drive, so I just started deleting everything to try and solve the problem.

The MacOS install couldn’t install because it had no where to install too. So I got lucky and created a partition somewhere in hopes that would work. It did and now I have to wait over 28 hours for 3 versions outdated MacOS install to completed before I can begin the journey of getting back to Catalina.

I know it was my fault obviously but from now on I think I’ll just not install any beta. I recently had a problem with an update that I managed to fix. I keep all my stuff up to date, but if the OS is considered stable I should have no problem.

I have considered going back to Windows but I don’t like OS and I much prefer MacOS look. I have also considered going to Android that way I can get off my phone contract because I wouldn’t have a problem if the iPhones cost $1k in Australia but that don’t.

But the problem with Android is that it’s by Google. And I am a big Apple fan. Because with Apple, it just works.

so yeah

One reason why I went to Apple’s MacOS is because I always, without fail, had problems on Windows when it came to programming / scripting. So imo unless you’re making something for Windows only, you program on a Mac.

Another issue with going to Windows would be that I use Apple’s Numbers (spreadsheet)

All that said, I am most interested, for Android, in the following: Google Pixel, Samsung & OnePlus.

GP because it’s stock Android but GP without fail always looks way outdated.

Samsung because of ecosystem and because best looking Android phone imo.

OnePlus because I like the brand name.

Now if I did go with Android, I would have to get their ecosystem.

I also like privacy, so that’s also why I use Apple amongst other reasons.

I have considered switching for money’s sake, but if I ever got back into programming, MacOS is the way, so...

I always did everything on UNIX or Windows, here we don't have a tradition of using MAC systems unless you work at a multimedia/ads company.

Money is always something to consider, a <800$ system has superior perfomance over a >1000$ unit with MAC. Nothing else to discuss really.

The reinstall is complete. Now begins the update.
