Big Sur
« on: July 14, 2020, 06:29:32 am »

Is Apple's announcement about Big Sur meaning that it is a successor to Catalina?  If so, given that Catalina has only been around since last Autumn, is that an admission that Catalina is not as good as they hoped?

(I am still using Mojave)

Best wishes,

Jonathan

From my perspective Catalina has been stable since 10.15.2

I waited on some software from 3rd parties which wasn't available until 10.15.3 and that's when I installed Catalina.

I'm on 10.15.5 now and I've never had any issues with Catalina.  YMMV

It's an every year thing like kers says.  It's also the first OS to support the new Apple CPU's and will apply more as the new hardware comes out this fall.

The current status is:

Mojave - 10.14 - runs 32bit & 64bit apps
Catalina - 10.15 - runs 64bit apps only
Big Sur - 11.0 - public beta this fall, supports new processors

Don't plan to move to it this year, maybe next year. Apple has been good about doing security updates for multiple platforms.  I'm still on 10.14, and will be there for a while.
