Catalina is ok for me, because I know what I am doing. But it’s still a crap OS and it’s designed to move more towards a complete walled garden app model rather than a real computer. The “security” measures are designed to remove capabilities and to make normals scared of their machines and using them properly so they can be herded the correct direction. It’s not accidental that this is very similar to Mozilla’s undertakings of late.
Windows is doing this, too, of course. Hell, even Linux is moving this way — there is and will be no escape. We are fully in Clown Hell World now.
