It’s official, Mac OS X Yosemite Public Beta is here. Available to the first 1 Million consumers who have registered for the Apple Beta Program and who are brave enough and willing to try beta software. I happen to be one of the million (one in a million?). I’ve just upgraded my 15″ Retina MacBook Pro to OS X Yosemite Beta, and it’s awesome!
By law, I’m not allowed to actually share too much information about the operating system, other than what Apple has already publicly shared themselves. But, I can say this: I’ve always been an ambassador, believer, fan, follower and, dare I say “evangelist” for all things Apple. I’ve used Apple for all my technology requirements since 2004, and I’ve never looked back. Many who don’t appreciate the awesomeness of Apple refer to people like myself as “Apple fanboys who like useless, expensive, shiny toys.” But the truth is, there is good reason and logic behind our Apple obsession; it is because, year after year, product after product, software update after software update, Apple keeps innovating. Apple delivers quality hardware and software which “Just Works.”
Many people who have never owned or operated an Apple product before, simply do not understand the concept of how awesome it is to have technology that actually does what it’s supposed to, and also looks good doing it. It is safe to say that anyone who bashes Apple has absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Apple “fanboys” such as myself worship Apple because of innovation, quality, ease-of-use, compatibility, and because everything works, beautifully. Even Apple’s pre-release beta software is more feature rich and more stable than all other operating systems I’ve ever used.
With OS X Yosemite, Apple has once again set a very high standard. The beauty, simplicity, and rich features of this operating system makes me feel like I’ve suddenly jumped far into the future. All of the overhauled OS X Apps mentioned on the Apple website are the most intuitive applications I have ever used, especially the new Safari. Apple innovates by creating software which feels natural and intuitive instead of simply changing things for the sake of changing them, or adding new features for the sake of adding new features. I applaud the teams who worked tirelessly to bring these over-hauled applications to light. It’s amazing how these applications were awesome even before they changed, yet Apple always finds a way to improve things even further.
“Everything Apple” just keeps getting better and better, and I am proud to be labelled a fanboy, because I enjoy using intuitive software and quality hardware that does exactly what I need it to do, and does it beautifully.
My first impression of OS X Yosemite Beta is that of jaw-dropping awe, and I’m not exaggerating. OS X Yosemite is indeed the world’s most advanced operating system yet!
