I have to say, as a fanboy, the number and seriousness of the bugs in the last few releases (everything past Snow Leopard) is starting to make be thing the OS is getting bloated and unwieldy. Sort of like, do I dare say it...Windows. :eek:

Tim keeps talking about what is important is the experience the use has interacting with the system, but having to deal with a lot of buggy systems is not providing a good user experience. If more "features" yields more frustration my the user, those new features are not necessary making the product better.

It may be time to get this unwieldy beast under control. Maybe the next major release should not contain much new but just make things work better under the hood. JMHO

For what it is worth, I've been running the 10.10.1 beta for a couple of weeks and it really seemed to stabilize everything. Wi-fi has been solid for me in comparison to 10.10.0. Mail seems much improved as well.

Overall, I'd say it is a great update.

My only problem with Mail is that it doesn't seem to fetch new mail quite as often as I'd like. My iPhone and iPad will receive an email and then, between 5 and 10 minutes later, my MacBook will receive it. I just think Mail for OS X should be constantly 'looking', like on iOS.

I'd also like Mail on my iPad to respond to what I do in Mail on my iPhone sooner, too. For example, say I have 4 unread emails on my iPhone, I read them all and sort them/trash them. They'll still show as unread on my iPad lock screen and in the Mail app until the iPad either decides to search for new mail, or I manually update my mailbox. Other iOS devices should respond almost instantly to your actions on other devices and should dismiss lock screen notifications/unread items when they're dealt with on other devices.
