MacDailyNews Take: Shoring up an already very nice High Sierra!


  1. Meanwhile, checking the file system repair utility developers, they’re still apparently on hold regarding updates of their utilities to support APFS. That’s the specific reason why I’ve stayed out of the beta as well as the public release of 10.13 High Sierra.

    Meanwhile, I have one Mac that’s been updated with a Fusion drive. So no go yet on that Mac.

    Déjà vu waiting for Apple go finish their rendition of ZFS, which never happened. Why is this transition to a modern file system so hard for Apple?

    1. Spot-on. New FS that’s not quite fully-cooked, doesn’t support some of their own *very* recent-gen hardware and doesn’t interoperate with any other OS? Good enough for Apple. SHIP IT.
