How about this: some people like Mac and some people like Windows.
Unfortunately there are certain people here who look at things in black and white and go out of their way to give their opinion on Mac or Windows as if it is incontrovertible fact.

It would be nice to just accept that what works for one person might not work for another, but that's not going to work for the people here who would argue with a brick wall over which operating system if 'better'.
That is not the kv......forum way. Please ban!!!
There is no such thing.

KVRaudio is not real.

The cake is a lie.

PSA: if you're having the issue I and numerous others have experienced with Mojave, everything hanging all the time, the culprit is Spotlight Indexing, which they appear to have rather botched.

Here's the fix: Disable System Integrity Protection; boot in Recovery, command/R; Utilities menu Terminal.
Type csrutil disable.

and reboot; now in regular Terminal, enter
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

(Turning it back on, do 'load' rather than 'upload' there. I never saw any use for the thing in the first place.)
This stays off, apparently.

Beats erasing the hard drive and all that shit.

Wow! I haven't had to go to those lengths to fix anything on any PC I've owned in a decade or more.

And just like that, all debates about Mac vs Windows were just over.

Wikipedia was updated to reference this same thread and the above post.

The media was alerted.

Somewhere, tears were dropped as people looked for an entirely different issue to argue about.

Done.

I was told that the LCD panel and front glass are now one piece and that the insanity I experienced servicing the 12,2 is no more (I have not investigated this claim). What problems do you encounter servicing the newer ones?
yep, you now cut the adhesive and drop the entire screen assembly as one (and have to then stick it back in place when done - such a pain just to avoid screws)

but even once you're inside the fun doesn't end - we had to pull the ssd card from a 2015 imac (fusion drive) as it'd failed and was rendering the machine unbootable. With the display out you'd think it'd be just a simple case of pulling it but no - they decided to put the card on the BACK side of the logic board, and the way the heat pipe off the cpu is done means you need to pull ALL the internals (speakers, psu, the lot) just to get the logic board out, undo one screw and remove the ssd card

newer ones they've done it proper - flash chips soldered in, when the ssd goes bad just throw it out
Holy shit.

I HATE unserviceable/disposable electronics. There isn’t remotely enough recycling going on to even offset the harm this shit causes long term.

Yes... that's the Apple way of doing things (use and throw away), and their vision of "environment-friendly". :roll:

Apple will trade-in old hardware, and you can take anything they won't accept for trade-in to an Apple store and they will recycle it. They don't actually advise anyone to throw things away.

I'm well aware of how Apple "recycles" their hardware. :roll:

The words in scare quotes, kind of an eye-roller IME.

Just nurture that beef some more, so
