As an Apple-only user since before there even was a Macintosh, the Surface Studio makes me angry. Angry because this is exactly the product that Apple should have made at least 6 years ago. Angry because it's inexcusable that Apple's products have fallen so far behind that even goddamn Microsoft looks innovative next to them. Angry because I really hate Windows but increasingly he hardware that does what I need to pay my bills is running it.
Seriously Apple, get your shit together.

Better yet, just make a model of Macbook that has this functionality built-in, and then you could do everything on one device. A stylus turns a Mac into a very powerful art creation device, but you really should not have to buy a separate device to do this, and you should have have to own and carry around so many devices.
That's not the point. This is about people who want to keep older versions running on devices that support newer software.
That's me for the most part. I like to stay at least one (or more) versions behind current on both my iPhone and my Macs. Apple has an increasing habit of taking features away that I like, so once i have a system running the way I want it, I'm very hesitant to trust Apple when a new version comes out. It's been quite a while since I've done an upgrade where I did not feel that it was a negative experience, so I want to stick with what I like.

Funny, most of those apps work well for me, but then again, I have the latest OS version. I think that the last time I updated was a couple of days ago.
Just update your OS, you dummies.
