OS X Yosemite

Hey everyone! Just wondering there's any mac users here?
Don't worry, I'm not some apple elitist - I use my old mac air for editing videos and college assignments (I understand the power of PC Smiley Tongue)

Anyone update to OS X Yosemite? 
To be honest I didn't find much different! Once you get past the new appearance of things, there's nothing much different when it comes to the nitty gritty... or am I missing something Smiley Tongue 
I mean they mention you can call and recieve messages now... but you could do that before using imessage and facetime on the old iOS... and finder is a little different in which you can open applications easier.

Here's a before and after of the dock - see? I don't see much different apart from that...

Oh and one main (little) thing i noticed is that it no longer makes that POP POP POP noise when turning up or down the volume. Seriously...that's the main thing I noticed...

I mean it's pretty and all...but I don't think it was worth the trouble of updating, and now i'm worried that it'll make this old thing suffer - just like my old iPhone4 died after a few months of updating it to iOS7...

What y'all thinking?

Hey Camsterr.

 

I'm a bit of an Apple aficionado.

 

Love them but don't actually own one. Have an iPad and a few iPods though.

 

I know how to use them. I have had the opportunity to use them over the years.

 

I really like the look of Yosemite.

 

I think Apple keep improving OSX for the better.

 

I would love to see a brand new version personally.

 

I tried out Windows 10 tech preview. It's a lot better than Windows 8.

 

It's going to be interesting to see the final version.

Hey Conor Smiley Very Happy

I wouldn't be a mad Apple fan but I certainly prefer the aesthetics of the Mac over a pc, but I'm sure some day when im rich I'll be able to afford both Smiley Wink
But you're right, Yosemite looks so much nicer and pleasing to the eye - which is something I guess Smiley Happy
Ou you got to try windows 10 ?
To tell you the truth i don't have much experience with windows 8, I got my Mac in or around the same time it came out so I am out of the loop in terms of using it, and trying to use my sister's laptop or my moms tablet ... It's not a pretty sight. And it's NOT because I use Mac, sure I had used windows previously from 98-XP-Vista-7!
So I'm glad you're saying 10 is a lot more user friendly Smiley Happy

Hey again Camsterr,

 

I just like the general clean design of Yosemite.

 

It's a dream in terms of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) design.

 

It’s so user friendly looking.

 

Yeah. I downloaded the Release Preview of Windows 10 and installed it onto my second HDD at the house.

 

It's the drive I tried Windows 8/ 8.1 on too.

 

I don't like Windows 8 at all, each to their own I guess.

 

I've used Windows since 3.1 lol. I started with Windows 95 though.

 

It'll be interesting to see what Microsoft do with Windows 10 in the coming months.

 

If you're interested in seeing opinions on it, I would recommend buying the magazine ComputerActive.

 

One of the writers are doing a guide on using Windows 10 at the moment.

 

It makes for interesting reading.

Hey Nubus,

 

Never really tired OSX Lion.

 

Really liked snow leopard.

 

It'll be interesting to see what Apple come up with next.
