Wait, so... you're not looking for solutions. You just want to trot out the problems you're not going to fix, and use them as examples of how Mac doesn't 'just work'…?
When it "just works' 99.8% of the time", we get to say, "It just works". The relatively few instances of problems that do exist (typically related to third party software and hardware, although no-one will say that Apple's OS or software is 100% bug-free, so it's sometimes those too) are ALWAYS manageable, and if not, are typically solved by Apple with updates.
That is the historical pattern. There are no cases where serious problems remain unresolved, and even minor cases are few and far between.
You think that a) because it's common to you, and b) there are some other users experiencing similar issues, that it's a common problem.
Did it occur to you that perhaps you and they are in the extreme minority? THat perhaps you share some behavior in common? Perhaps using Time Capsule with unsupported systems? A setting somewhere? Incompatible software? I've had third party plugins for Logic Pro (Audio Units) crash my software in weird ways. Turns out they were competing for the same hard-wired memory space (contradicting the rules of good behavior in the process). Apple's bad? Nope. Difficult to isolate? Yes. Extremely. Worth doing anyway? Yes. Extremely.
Ignoring friendly advice form power users here tells me you not only don't care, but it calls your "tales" into question. I believe you, but any relevant insight could change everything for you. And yet, it's only about your point of "Apple is imperfect", and not about getting those problems solved?
Huh. So, are you done now? I sure am...
