No RAID support in Disk Utility anymore, but we now have a taco icon and middle finger! Woohoo! That middle finger one will come in handy when I send Tim Cook my feedback on how I feel about Apple's priorities these days. ;)

Hey, the new iTunes update has a nice BEGGAR SCREAM on it when you start iTunes after the update! "WON'T YOU PLEASE TRY iTUNES MUSIC!?!? PLLLLLEEEEEAASSSE??? COME ON! START YOUR FREE TRIAL ALREADY!!??!?! I'LL THROW IN A BURRITO ICON FOR FREE!"

Yeah, it was pretty annoying. I guess everyone went back to Spotify after the trial period ended because iTunes looked like some kid designed the interface. I hear his name is Johnny Boy.

I'm really tired of Apple releasing a new OS every year. It's just ridiculous. It's too fast and it almost always takes a good 6-9 months just to iron out the new bugs. I wish they would at least move to a 2-year cycle so we could quit chasing down all of these problems for awhile.

Everything has been working great except for two things. First, Norton Antivirus started taking up 235% of my CPU. Turned my fans on my MBA and everything. Crazy.

Second, battery life seems horrible. I am at 60% and it says I have 3 hours of battery life left on my 2015 MBA. On 10.11.0 it would have said about 7-9 hours left. Have no idea what it going on but I hope it's just acting a bit screwy for now and this isn't permanent.


A reason then to get rid of Norton... Jebus, i wouldn't even put that on a Windoze machine, let alone a Mac, which doesn't actually need it...???

I wish Apple wold simply stop doing "major updates" to the OS and focus on bug repair and smaller incremental changes. Why do we need all new UI and codebase every single year? The answer is we don't. Apple marketing seems to think they do. Bring back classic for example and if that means a thunderbolt dongle to make it work, okay.

where is the combo update ?

Guys, there is no combo, you need a minimum 10.x.2 version for it to be called a combo.
10.11.0 is the new OS, then 10.11.1 is only 1 update from 10.11, the combo combines previous ones, so there will be a combo from 10.11.2 and onwards since it will skip all the former 10.11.1-2-3-4...versions.
