Well, have been trying to download 10.8.3 for over an hour now. Most of that has been just trying to pay for the bloody thing. I haven't purchased anything from Apple in a year or so and this is my first app purchase, seems they don't like that. New corporate culture thrives on complete obedience. Another problem was that I use a password generator, which won't work with Apple. Guess they don't like too much security.
As of now, the itunes store shows the 10.8.3 page with a box under the kitty picture saying "downloading". There's no temp file on the desktop or any other indication that anything is happening. Usually a pane pops up showing progress during a download.
Yep, it just gets easier and better all the time.
Why this rant? Because you had to pay for an upgrade even if you managed to pay nothing in more than a year?
I may be useful to stress that OS X is the cheapest upgrade among the non open source OS's. Did you know that?
1) Apple takes security seriously. Every password generation field has a key on the side, which open a password generation app. Plus OS X/iOS support 1Password which is THE ecosystem to manage passwords and private data. What are you talking about?
2) Under App Store app you can see the progress for each downloaded app. OS's too.
3) There is a temp file, obviously, and you can have another progress indication opening Launchpad. Both visual and textual."New corporate culture thrives on complete obedience."
Was this rant worth it?
