    Be forewarned, i bought a new MacBook with Final Cut Pro. When setting up the device, the MacBook apparently didn’t recognize me as the owner. Could not update FCP or any applications as none of the applications were assigned to my Apple ID. I was told by apple support to delete, than reinstall. Did not work because apple stated it could not assign FCP that was preinstalled. After waiting a week, I decided to returned the device. It took me two days and multiple tries after being transferred from department to department to return. It’s sad but if I cannot use it for what I purchased it for, than I will return it.

    The reason you need to drag the application to the Applications Folder Shortcut in that small window is because on a Mac the program is contained inside a file that acts like a virtual drive. The application is then copied from the virtual drive to the Applications Folder and is then installed. If it was to be made simpler by having it install on click then the file would have to be executable from the get-go, which I believe is against the Macintosh Operating System. Even so, some applications you can download as a package and the package runs a setup wizard just like Windows where you have to select the installation location and agree to all the steps and keep on clicking Next, Next, Next, etc. which is more tedious than that drag and drop feature. At the end of the day its a small ask to drag the application to the Applications Folder Shortcut. Hope this helps Linus, and anyone else who read it.

    I've sent my Mac mini M1 back to Apple - too many issues in the network stack: SMB super faulty, AFP works, but not reliably. It got neither the job as a Plex server nor as a FTP client done. Jumping from 1G to 10G connectivity with the OWC TB3 adapter did not help. Last but not least I hoped for a 5k image on my display, but with my LG 49" 32:10 monitor I only get 4k (issue acknowledged but not solved by Apple). Sorry - I need this machine to do more than FCPX....

Not that I'm gonna buy one, just interested to know how meaningful it is for everyone else to reverse engineer it and use if for better purpose than put it in and Apple machine.

    What is so awesome about using paper instead of plastic? To make paper you need wood. To get wood, you chop down trees. There is a saying: you run away from wolf just to stumble on a bear. Even if its made out of used paper. Just think about it, what happens when everybody tries to use "used" paper? There will be not enough of it, which means you need fresh new paper. Again choppin down those trees. Super markets in our country started doing exactly the same. They ditched the plastic bags for paper bags and call themselves environment savers. They have to reduce packing materials, not to swap around.

The fact macOS comes with iWork apps like pages, numbers which i find sometimes better than Microsoft office and privacy like inbuilt filecault, encrypting folders and all make them cheaper than other manufacturers. Apple is future.

    Not only can IT administrators skip the setup wizard almost entirely. But they can configure zero-touch deployment. Meaning they can register with Apple as a business customer and buy Mac's, ship them still in the factory shrink wrap to the users home. The user unboxes, it puts it on the Internet and the rest of the enterprise setup can be completely automated. Essentially that serial number and GUID are known by Apple to be owned by your company. During the initial startup it phones home to Apple who says, hey this is ABC companies Mac and we are going to forward it to ABC Inc's cloud hosted MDM (Mobile Device Management) server. It will auto-enroll because Apple trusts ABC Inc. Now imagine one of your employees had a MacBook Pro stolen or lost or damaged. Well no problem, procurement orders a Mac and makes it available for pickup at the employee's nearest Apple Store. They drive over there and pick it up. It will auto-configure itself in about an hour. Automagically locking things down via Configuration Profiles, running policy based scripts, installing software such as the company VPN software, etc. It can even finish and dump the user into a company App store with all the optional things they might wish to install. All that without the user even requiring local admin rights. Wipe out the Mac and restore via Internet Recovery and the whole zero-touch auto-enrollment occurs again. If stolen you can direct that particular Mac to another MDM server where it will also auto-enroll but with different settings. Think covert law enforcement data collection for authorities such as any connected networks plus nearby networks and any connected devices, etc.

    closed ecosystems suck, Apple computers are useless until Apple controls everything from appstore to your ability to use apps. they literally log EVERY app you open on their devices and their servers choose to allow or deny everything you do. even Little Snitch is useless now because no longer gets access to all network traffic and Apple renders useless all and any VPNs. now with Apple you have no privacy. plus a complete lack of upgradeability and repairability. you are their isheep and you essentially aren't owner of device you pay them for because you aren't in control of its use. for all these reasons ARM or not Apple products at this point are a trash for technically illiterate and nothing to be excited about.

And even impressive... If you look in to future so now we make products oriented to average consumers who are guided in to it by social media but in the past we used to create products to exceed consumers needs in terms of quality , materials, durability , innovation and design...

    The installation has this process because sometimes there are other files and/or instructions seperated from the app itself. In that case, you will see 2, 3, 4 icons, maybe one of them is a README, maybe one of them is a supplementary piece of software or extension software that you may/may not necessarily need. Lots of times there is only this one icon for the entire .app package for you to drag to the applications folder, so if you haven't been using it for a while you will not be able to understand why this is the case. This provides the users with a chance to select software that you need.
