Mac OS Catalina out today
 
Just got a notice. I think I'm going to try to perform a clean install on my iMac. I have some old program files that force messages but are not visible.

Wish me luck.

OK, Good Luck...!!! OK...???

I heard it was out and even though my 2011 iMac cannot I use it, I was a bit surprised to see it just tucked down in the App Store amongst all the other applications, and surprisingly marked as utilities.

I would have thought that Apple would have released it with a little bit more flourish and pomp, and I hope for you people they aren't too embarrassed about releasing it.

I also noticed that they used their stupid light grey font colour that they seem so keen on using, almost to the point it is almost unreadable:

Catalina finally ditches support for some of my favourite 32-bit software, so it will be quite some time before I go there.

Similar here, I pretty well gave up on Apple's OS "Upgrades" after they started dropping some useful "features" after Mavericks 10.9.x that I still use as my main boot OS.

And nothing really improved that interests me even if I could use any.

And I don't even really enjoy using my iPad 3 and Apple's idea of a good working iOS with the latest version it can run.

I have a 32-bit standalone Photoshop. If I let that go, I'm stuck on Adobe subscription services.

you should look into Affinity Photo then. No subscription.

Are you using Photoshop CS6? Thought that one was 64 bit already?

I am staying away as well, Apple has not added anything really major that makes me want to update anymore. Plus a few helpful apps I use for work that would not longer work, I will just stay where I am for the time being.

yup 64 bit for CS6. CS5 was 32 or 64 bit.

I'm still happy with good old 32-bit CS5, but it's definitely on my list of things to try.
