“In the past couple of years, I’ve fought with Mac OS X updates and iOS updates that are only on a scale that could be described as “Windows-esque”. And I’m not happy about it,” Ken Hess writes for ZDNet. “I waited for a few weeks before updating to Yosemite. Why? Because of “special features” that seem to plague early adopters of any Microsoft update. Yes, I’m tainted. Yes, I’m jaded. But what I shouldn’t be is surprised.”
“Yes, you’re reading it correctly. I’m mixing Apple and Microsoft updates into the same hideous lump. I’m not sure what has gone wrong in Apple’s soup, but I think someone needs to rethink the recipe,” Hess writes. “Apple needs to reboot, clear its memory registers, reinitialize, POST, and nudge itself back to the Jobs days of excellence.”
“OK, now that this bit is out of the way, let me describe my Yosemite upgrade experience to you. It went smoothly enough, but I was apprehensive about doing it. After the initial reboot into Yosemite, I was impressed with the cooler looking icons. But, my excitement was soon subdued by the lackluster (‘lackluster’ is being kind) performance. I rebooted again after about an hour to be sure it wasn’t just me. I rebooted and it was still the same,” Hess writes. “Earlier today I was saved by an internal posting by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes who wrote of the Yosemite 10.10.1 update… I decided to try the update. It worked. My awesome Mac mini is awesome again.”
