Apple today seeded the third beta of OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite to developers, just over two weeks after seeing the second 10.10.2 beta and over a month after releasing OS X 10.10.1 to the public.

The new beta, build 14C81f, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center.

14c81f
Like OS X 10.10.1, as a minor update, OS X 10.10.2 is likely to bring bug fixes and performance improvements to the operating system. OS X 10.10.1 introduced several reliability enhancements, including improvements to Wi-Fi, but many users have still been reporting issues with Wi-Fi stability in Yosemite.

In the release notes for the third 10.10.2 beta, Apple asks developers to focus on Wi-Fi, indicating the update may fix some of the lingering Wi-Fi problems. Apple also asks developers to focus on Mail and VoiceOver.

I don't know how you come to this conclusion. Yosemite works fine here and this is also the feedback I get from all of my customers that are running it.
I've been a Mac user since 1986. I use my Macs full time as a software engineer. I know how to trouble shoot user error, and figure out workarounds.

IMHO, Apple software quality is at a low I haven't seen in many years. When Steve Jobs died he took the Reality Disruption Field with him. That's where "It just works" lived. That is history. Now, it just doesn't work.

I used BTTM quite a bit to remote desktop from my MBP at work to my Mini at home. That's no longer possible.

The OS X release cycle as it has been for the past several years:
Spend 7 months not being able to do basic things on your computer riddled with bugs, lags, crashes, performance issues and instability problems. Spend 5 months enjoying the OS that finally kind of works well enough to use. Upgrade to new release. Repeat. I do wish Apple just made ONE good OS and stuck to it until it was really absolutely necessary to release something new. Like Mavericks was great, why didn't they just stick with it without really changing anything for, say, 5 years? There was nothing wrong with it, why change it? It's not like people were begging for new features or anything. And the UI looked fine, it's not like it was that outdated. Some people still use Windows XP because it was a great OS. I think performance and stability far outweighs features and a modern UI for a desktop OS.

The new Apple

I likely am going back to Microsoft when Windows 10 and Surface 5 or 6 emerge. The new Apple has become The Adult Toy Company, albeit the wealthiest in the world. It is no longer a computer company.

King Steve Jobs is dead. Long live the new King! Who the hell is he? The Chief Accountant?

I have not been able to do a time machine backup since upgrading to Yosemite from Mavericks.

I have also have major issues with my MS Office for 2011 crashing regularly since the Yosemite update.

I never had any of these issues when running Mavericks and I am not a happy camper at the moment.

How could Apple release Yosemite to the public with such a major bug such as the time machine backup issue????
