The gist of this rant is that Apple uses some nasty tricks to prevent people from having control over the operating system and hardware they paid for.
Why in the ever-loving fracking #$% does it take 1-3 days to send me a download link? Does it really take all of 3 days to set up all my customized corporate bloatware and back doors in my operating system before you “ship” me a link via email? You think it’s clever to force users to do network installs of their operating system and make it impossible to install from burned media?
I paid for the OS. The credit card was charged. Now “ship” me my link already.
I’ll definitely be ditching your operating system as soon as possible. I’m on the fence about going exclusively to Linux and may even return this new $1500 slave-made paperweight I have here to the store if this operating system upgrade fiasco continues through the weekend.
Hope you’re happy, you’re destroying what was once a decent company. I predict apple will be defunct in 10 years, which is why I want physical install media! You’re not going to be around long enough to rely on for internet-only reinstalls of my OS if it becomes necessary.
PS. To translate for you, a “customer” is a person who buys your product, without them your company tanks. no matter how much government payoff money you receive, people are still not forced to buy Macs. Linux will destroy Apple in the next 10 years if you continue trying to turn Macs into TVs with spyware. But what do you care, your execs will run off with the payoff money, you’ll find new jobs.
Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
Apparently Apple didn’t like my rant on the Forums. I’ll paste this conversation below for posterity. As soon as I used the term “NSA” on their forums my post was auto-deleted as “not constructive”
