Pic related is one of the main reason I switched away from Apple. A good laptop shouldn't get painfully hot from just watching a video.

>> No.66753179

It’s these modern hot intel chips and ssds. Every laptop which doesn’t sound like a jet engine when watching a video has some form of overheating issue. And that just about includes just about everything which isn’t a 5 inch thick super high end desktop replacement.

Why do people hate Apple nowdays?
MacOS is literally the best OS out there.
>Supports most of mainstream software like Office/Adobe/Autodesk stuff.
>Has never crashed on me even though I install shit from homebrew and fuck around in terminal.
>Even has some good linux software like emacs.
>Many new games work great on it.
>Looks amazing.

I use Arch/XFCE on my T60, openSUSE KDE on my desktop and still I have to use MacOS to do some actual work.
Even a stable openSUSE Leap has a shitload of problems on my desktop with a fucking old Intel i5 2500K CPU and all mainstream hardware. I can't even browse the web without graphics problems.

Price is the big issue but I can't relate since I got my rMBP almost free.

Windows is the bigger shit than MacOS nowdays, redirect that hate to Microsoft as they are much bigger evil than Apple.

SUSE even has a broken font installer. I literally installed it with their (((YAST))) installer and installed fucking Chromium from that YAST shit and every now and then i get a full screen of artefacts just by browsing web in that shit.
Arch on T60 works alright tho.

Main thing going for MacOS and why I love it currently is support for mainstream software. If you didn't know some people need to work sometimes to earn some money. And if I open a fucking .docx document in libreOffice which is unarguably shit I get mostly broken text file.

I won't even mention CAD work which is okay regarding freeCAD and libreCAD but it doesn't support the industry standard .dwg format and therefore is useless.

Also you can't argue that GIMP is as good as Photoshop. It's not even usable ffs.

Linux is great for programming and fucking around but for engineering is almost useless.

True that. But what I'm telling is that at least Apple is not forced down everyones throat via education and mainstreaming. You go out and buy any fucking laptop or computer, it comes with a fucking Spyware10 free of charge.
Every school, at least in my country uses exclusively Microsoft software, providing free licenses and has become the default of all times. Even employers ask if you have that shitty Microsoft certificate that you know how to use the office and such shit.
So much hate is targeted to Mac but nowdays they are literally staying aside doing nothing if you don't want to be involved.
Google on the other side is unavoidable. If you use android and linux or windows you can stay completely away from any apple service, but if you use any god damn OS on any device you can't stay away from all of the google bullshit.

Of course now will some /g/tard say that we should use TempleOS or Gentoo and some meme FOSS services to live botnet free. But in reality its not doable thanks to google and microsoft.

Even AOSP can't run mostly anything without GApps and MicroG still uses a lot of nonfree blobs from Google. Same goes for vanilla LineageOS w/o GApps. Replicant is the only "google free" one but it's not really useable on 99% of devices and you still can't use WhatsApp and most other stuff you actually need a phone for.

>> No.66754677

can you tell me the difference between bsd and linux?

>> No.66754718

bsd was originally a fork of the official Bell Labs Unix code. then it evolved into being FOSS by rewriting the proprietary / non permissive license stuff. and still to this day it has a license where somebody can take it and close off the source, instead of being required to always make the source publically available. (this is e.g. why some of the macOS source is not public, or why the playstation 4 OS is not public: they took FreeBSD [for the ps4] or parts of BSD [for macOS/darwin] and put it in a "walled garden")

linux OTOH was written from scratch by Linus and he licensed it under the GPL, so anything with the linux kernel or anything that depends on it has to have its source made public.

linux is less close to the unix philosophy than BSD is; e.g. systemd is pretty much a violation of unix standards.

i could go on listing differences if you're interested but those are the main ones.

You know you can use any mouse you want, right? And macbooks have a setting to make the bottom right corner of the trackpad into right click, or two finger touch, etc. macOS uses right click functionality plenty.

This is just "active" stuff I use right now. My work laptop replaced my old personal MacBook because it decimates it in performance. The iMac is a Hackintosh.

Recently found out about iStats, which is pretty awesome. Bear is a great notetaking app that uses Markdown. I used to use CyberDuck but that shit would hang/crash on large directories, so I ended up buying Transmit and don't regret it. I keep tryna switch to Safari but it keeps fucking up on me, which sucks because Safari is way better at battery life than Chrome. I do DevOps/programming btw.
