What do you think of Yosemite?
How are you enjoying your Mac laptops (if you got a desktop from them you goofed)

As a long term OSX user I like it, it makes it feel fresh again.
No idea, and if I was you I would wait for it to be at least gold before putting it on a Hackintosh.
I am keeping my Hackintosh on 10.9.4 till its in its final build.
I like it. Looks nice (to me), and is fast. There are some bugs, but that's the point of beta, so I'm reporting them. My main issue is that my school uses Cisco NAC Agent to regulate computers that connect to their resident network, and it doesn't like Yosemite. So internet is hard, but that's Cisco's issue.
This shit right here? Fucking continuity wont work right with my iOS8 device. God damn betas I just want my legendary tier cross device syncing dammit.
I am liking it so far. Installed it over top of Mavericks on my primary machine and haven't had any issues yet (only had it for 1 day). I don't use many applications though so the risk of an error is likely lower. I like the new flat design, but then I liked ios7 as well.
Yes, it's a early '13 RMBP.
minus Finder's temporary smirk, it's beautiful.
just got a macbook pro yesterday
honestly i was iffy about it but i really like it
only thing that pisses me off is i have to use control + c to copy something on safari and then use the command key to paste it in some application, why two keys?
You've been able to change the color since forever. I'm assuming that it's the same pref pane, but I don't feel like booting to my Yosemite partition so eh.
People said the same thing about Tiger.
And then Panther.
And then Leopard.
And Snow Leopard.
And now Mavericks.
This time next year, the same exact post will talk about Yosemite.
>What do you think of Yosemite?
It was alright. No real complaints. Didn't care enough to upgrade on my main partition, though, so I'm back on Mavericks.
>How are you enjoying your Mac laptops
Still the best laptop I've owned. ThinkPads don't come close.
colour profiles are all fucked up, new icons have terrible contrast and readability, and all the new transparency shit they shoved into the UI has made it slow as fuck on older machines.
just another os x release
I'm holding off on Yosemite until general release or more likely until 10.10.1. No point in risking shit when I need my laptop to work.
The pinstripe/brush metal look was hideous. I hated it then and never really understood what Apple was thinking.
Helvetica Neue looks so awful in System Preferences. Makes me think of KDE or something
Well lets go along with what you say;
Even if I am some kind of gender confused man or a "faggot" I still have vast, vast more amounts of wealth than you do.
Just one of my camera bodies cost more than pretty much your whole set up.
My Breitling watch costs around £6000
So as you put it my "cocksucking" is going very, very well, thank you.
Enjoy your cum stained used laptops.
When i open a new tab in Safari, how do i make the address bar selected by default ? I just want to start typing instead of pressing tab first
Only had my compact to take the photos, and I did not want to go up to high ISO.
As its an editing room its really dark so its flash or iso 6400 to get a nice shot.
My work is pretty meh, still makes me massive of money, work with pretty girls, travel for free and work 30 hours a week.
As for my curtains, I only moved into this place a few months ago and have not really been home, I do most of my editing in a studio and from my laptop. Me and the GF are getting new shit for house soon... one day... lol
More of my "Placebo lenses"
Dat feel when I get to shoot Leica glass for work.
Unless your "compact" is a shitty point and shoot with limited manual control you were taking a photo of still objects. If you're bragging about how much your glass cost you probably have a number of tri/monopods.
>crossprocess a photo about cameras and lenses
>doesn't even light it uniformly, uses a fucking desk lamp
Seriously, you are incredibly lazy, if this is indeed your work.
Canon IXUS 132, really, really shit lol.
I keep most of my working glass and camera stuff in my studio, really need to some shots of that for my battle station pic.
I just get paid to pew pew snap not pick models.
Look on a histogram, it should be pretty spot on.
It was shot on a 85mm 1.4 L so yea depth of field will be a thing..
Shot by a window with an iphone lol.
there are actual faggots in every osx thread, but they aren't the osx users who are talking about the os, they're freetards neckbeards like yourself that post about getting fucked in the ass and sucking cock.
you closet homos use OSX threads as an outlet for your repressed cock craving.
Sold my early 2008 (non-unibody) MBP for a Thinkpad T410s which is now running gentoo, and I couldn't be happier about the decision. Currently my only "Mac" is my build; pic related.
Try the extension builder method then: https://developer.apple.com/library/safari/documentation/userexperience/conceptual/safariextensionsconversionguide/chapters/Greasemonkey.html
It kinda sucks because you need to make a (free) Safari developer account to sign the extensions and manually update them. Also some scripts need some tinkering to get them to work in Safari. Just use Chrome/Chromium if you rely on many userscripts
>What do you think of Yosemite?
It's the fulfillment of my prediction that Apple's means of going off the deep end will will have been to cave in to Shitro/Jewnity and go all out "help I can't decide if I'm a desktop or tablet OS"
>can't decide if I'm a desktop or a tablet OS
>pre iOS 7 looked exactly like launchpad from OSX, with a separate set of menus for settings
>iOS 7 makes it completely different from OSX in terms of appearance
>OSX now uses color scheme and font from iOS, redesigns multiplatform apps to look the same on all fronts for consistency's sake
>literally nothing else changed
>now considered going off the deep end
what are the downsides of os x especially in comparison to openbsd/linux?
i heard that apple "disabled" some things by default to make it less likely that plebs will fuck things up, like certain /paths being completely hidden
is that true and is there any other stuff like that that i should know about?
Linux is more customizable and comes with developer tools out of the box. Gotta download the developer tools for OS X, which are still much better than on Windows.
Macs take more work to get different window managers and desktop environments working, but you can certainly still make it happen.
Just depends on what you want, really. I like the software of OS X more than on Linux by a landslide, and having native Netflix support is great.
>people actually get paid to make those FOSS-tier icons
this has gotta be a troll, you're bragging about wealth and your camera setup is comprised of a bunch of c tier lenses, one of the cheapest L lenses you can buy, a bunch of flea market bodies? what the fuck, man
As a long time thinkpad owner that recently gave up on the brand, I agree with you to a point. The keyboard is my major sticking point. The action on it just isn't as good. Aside from glossy screen that's my major complaint so far.
you could just use the built-in reinstall function
you like hold option + r at startup and you can DL + reinstall the OS X version your mac originally came w/
I installed yosemite. shits horrible, little annoying bugs everywhere
-can't generate dropbox links in finder
-in safari, address bar isn't selected by default when I open a new tab
-small but annoying icon inconsistencies
there are other small things, but those are the ones that are really, really killing my joy to use this. I'm going back to 10.9
other than obvious bugs it feels ok. I'll gladly install it when its actually out
thats up to you. some will actually prefer 13" for its compactness.
Thinking about buying the macbook pro retina 13", the mid range version (with 256 SSD and 8GB RAM)
How adequate is it for gaming? Definitely won't be my main use for it, but some indie stuff (like Wasteland 2 and other kickstarters) would be nice
I'll just leave this here, you guys comment
I was thinking about the colour scheme.. Wouldn't those colours be better for Yosemite, since they are less bright.
But who knows, maybe its some psychological thing. Fuckers Google did it since their beginning and we like them most.
Honestly, bing is better designed and nobody uses it..
It's okay I guess, I think I'm going to throw away all of the shitty icons they made. I noticed that Apple stuff in general has lost that special polish ever since Jobs died.
Do you realize that translucency, being almost depicted as an innovation in the latest OS X, was one of the key visual element of Windows fucking Vista? Yes, Vista. That was back in 2007!
Also, being able to continue working on your documents from the phone / laptop / desktop has been available since Windows FUCKING Phone 7 and the former SkyDrive. That was in 2010.
Do you realize that we have also had those things all this time, but in the past, Apple had the good sense to implement them sparingly and in a sensible carefully thought out manner, instead of just vomiting up huge hulking masses of it like every 8 year old with a new toy?
Forstall might have been a real cock, no doubt, and firing his ass was probably long overdue, but handing over UI design to your Hardware guy, knighthood bedamned, was a bad fucking move. This shit looks as atrocious and crude as Google & Microsofts half assets lo-fi bullshit.
This sucks and I hate it.
so, thats the guy who made those great icons?
And all the other lush graphics, all the way back to Aqua. Granted, some of them were a little over the top, but, compared to this "flat" neon candyapple hoedown shitkickin teenage girl sextoy fad... I'll take the former any day.
who cares about fucking apple maps, every rational motherfucker uses google anyways...
But why the fuck get rid of this UI genius?? I love skeuomorphism and metallic look of OS X.
Apple confirmed for retard! Trying to compete with google maps (LOL), firing the guy who made OS X look polished. Stupid fuckers! I would sell all my Apple stocks if I had any by now.
OS X =/= iOS
you can do time machine recoveries or full reinstalls just fine
I just did a full one. yosemite beta sucked dick, at least on my laptop. assuming the experience is similar for others, I'll only recommend it to EXTREMELY curious people.
I like Yosemite so far, I've encountered no problems with it and it just looks fresh. I'm really liking the new version of Safari as well. I'm also glad that they finally made sense of the window controls. The green maximise button was always useless until now.
I have plenty of money, since I know how to save it. For example, I built my own computer and saved a bunch of money compared to buying a pre-built one. Works much better as well.
>The green maximise button was always useless until now.
Nope. At least with properly coded apps it "right sized" the window. As someone who likes to use more than one app at a time it's really handy.
Nah it was pretty pointless, it's faster to multitask with full screen programs using Mission Control. I don't know if you have a trackpad or not but that makes all the difference when you can just swipe between all your open programs.
New Keyboard shortcut
Bind Command + T to Command + T
Attach additional action
Command + L
tbh that looks pretty gross.
best coming through
it's a bug, not a design change. on my betas of Yosemite it is highlighted on a new tab (both from mouse click or from Cmd+T)
if anything Safari is much more sensible now that they finally have scrolling tabs and middle click to close tab. Holy shit finally.
Should have just left the icons alone
Yeah, I'm really hoping they'll come back to their senses about using Helvetica Neue EVERYWHERE rather than only in places where it's actually approporiate.
Hopefully after enough beta users spam the fuck out of their bug report database.
>Hopefully after enough beta users spam the fuck out of their bug report database
I doubt it. Best to hope for is enough people disliking it the point where someone ports Mavericks' font (if it's not already transferable)
Because they might not have figured out a Yosemite version of the indefinite progress bar yet.
THAT'S the progress window and bar now?
ugly as fuck, as soon as my girlfriend is done watching youtube on it, i'll install linux on it. got into the beta yesterday.
the only think that kept me from installing linux earlier was the good looking mavericks.
Helvetica is a great font. It's just that they're using it poorly. They should be using thicker variants for one.
I've used Helvetica on Mavericks since I installed it and I like using it.
You're the only one that likes skeumorphism. Deal with it.
If all else fails, there's always BetterTouchTool
I was just trying to set a reminder on iOS7 (I rarely use reminders). And was confused because there's absolutely noting to tell you how to add one: you just have to know to click on the white space. That was obvious when it looked like paper but not when it's just a white space (note: iOS lacks a '+' button like the Yosemite version there)
The iOS version is terrible. I love the ditching Skeueueueueomorphism trend but even I have to admit they fucked up on Reminders and Voice Recorder.
But iOS 7 is pretty much a 1.0 for the new design, I bet (hope) they'll fix things as they go along.
Did you know the older transparency on OS X was closer to Aero than Yosemite?
Font rendering looks incredibly broken when you have the transparency enabled.
>Rounded on top, square on bottom.
>It's the same on Mav
I updated my Hackintosh yesterday and I have everything working as it was before except the few apps that broke. The only noticeable bug I've encountered is that my secondary display is now mirrored until I log in. Photo Booth also works now when it didn't before (not like I'll ever use it)
I'm enjoying the new UI and think it looks fresh as hell. The new features are nice when I notice them. I'm excited to see how it looks when it's finished.
b-but why must be Windows 8 so fucking Ugly
they removed aero, but left the fucking service running
removed border shadows so you cannot see what Windows is focus on, but fucking left shadows in all menus, rightclick..
iconset from Windows 95-7
looks like fucking Windows 3.1
kill me, please
The only flat new design language that I can dig is Material.
Metro is shit.
WhateverAppleshatout is shit.
Material looks nice.
>he doesn't have a retina mac
Hi there macfags, I'm really considering buying a Macbook Pro 13", because I'm fed up with Linux (well, not with Linux, but with X and all the shitty desktop environments, I still love Linux on servers and embedded systems) and I need a Unix based OS. Were any of you using Linux before you went OS X? Tell me about the switch.
I would really like to buy a Macbook pro but I'm split on getting one now or waiting for the new gen stuff to be out.
I'm not bias towards any of the great win/osx debate and whateveer else It's just I've wanted one for a whlie... Is it a good time to buy or wait?
Well I use both OSX and Linux most days (Linux as work, OSX at home and sometimes at work). Linux is good-enough, but OSX is a massive step up. You lose nothing for moving to OSX and gain a huge amount.
I made a Mini ITX build, Its not only my first Hackintosh but also my first ever PC build (iMac user before)
I just used parts that people listed as compatible and it was built and running flawlessly in under 2 hours.
I have not really turned it off for 3 months, running fine.
I've been using a macbook pro for the past two years, so I'm kinda confident that I like OS X.
The real question is if I actually need a desktop build I guess, although I wouldn't mind some extra processing power on the side for when friends are around (gaming etc)
Mid 2012 != Four years ago.
They did NOT imply that this was a retina mbp, this was in fact a NON-RETINA mbp that you can still buy from apple for the high price of $1200
how fucking dense are you?

jesus fucking christ
Good job naming the only acceptable version of OSX.
these three mean stagnation and NSA spy tool integration
Complete degradation of OSX, but it's probably the right thing for the majority of people who became the typical kind of OS X user these days.
