So why do so many of you still praise Apple so much?
Compared to the competition they're pretty good. Have you had a look at the debacle that has been Windows updates lately? I say this as someone who has had to roll back security patches to stop domain controllers boot looping.

Bluetooth with Apple's own keyboard and trackpad from Monterey on M1 (no issues with intel 2015)

Bluetooth with buggy headphone balance randomly changing (a decade old bug).

Surely there's more in this enormous patch than that. They might as well just write "bug fixes and performance improvements."

Pure love-hate relationship here, my man.

Love, because they are head and shoulders above the rest.

Hate, because so much obviously broken stuff doesn't get fixed; and so much obviously stupid stuff gets released.
