I thought living next to Big Sur would ingratiate me with the MacOS gods, but I'm forced to conclude that it did not.

Might want to double check youíd read the post before solliloquizing.

I said there is no point to natively booting ARM Windows, especially since it would need to support Apple-specific SoC features to run decently. Lots of work for no benefit (no backwards compat with historical Windows software). But virtualizing ARM Windows? Why not. Some third party could offer that for whoever really wants it.

Every program used on the windows 10 arm demos (AKA office or creative cloud) is emulated 32bit x86. It runs slowly on bare metal and it will run slower on virtualized. The native software library for windows 10 arm is smaller than beos last time i checked.

Is there any kind of session management wrapper software for iterm2? It's getting annoying creating aliases and I really love iterm2. Something that emulates SecureCRT would be nice.

What do you mean by 'session management wrapper'? iTerm 2 has session definitions ("Profiles") and if I recall you can set them to execute whatever you want when you create a new instance of it, so if you have a particular environment you'd like to set up, you can make it a profile with a custom look & feel and a small script that sets it up.

Like I have a window pane of clickable SSH sessions for different servers. Look and feel I don't care about as I have that set up the way I like it locally.

You should be able to do that with Profiles. If you CMD-O you can keep the Profiles window open if you want, but they're one-click accessible from the Profiles menu bar item.

If you want to get real fancy, if your SSH hosts don't have cert auth, you can set up a Profile for the SSH and then a Trigger on the password entry to fill in a password from the Password Manager which stores passwords securely in Keychain (and unlocks with TouchID!).

iTerm 2 has a lot of power user features that aren't surfaced very well IMO. It's hella powerful. You can have per-profile key bindings too to interact with hosts that have weird-rear end terminals (if you find Backspace is inserting unusual escape chars as plaintext for example).

I'm trying to move away form the Unix way of doing things, with the Term and the shellscripts, and all that mess, and instead do everything from within an Emacs buffer. I've been doing the bash/zsh thing for a few years now but I'm feeling it's limitations. Aquamacs seems well suited to the osx keys. And god I'd kill -9 that bar on the top of the screen if I had a chance.

Is it possible to edit the metadata for TV shows you bought from Apple?

I have a bunch of episodes of Ghost in the Shells: Arise that have been labelled badly. It means they end up out of order and with phantom seasons. In iTunes, you could get info and then edit the info there. But in the TV app, it seems like edits don't stick.

A Macbook with a form factor more or less identical to iPad Pro + Brydge/Magic Keyboard would be generally kind of cool, but that seems like it would still be a stretch performance-wise to get that into a usable casing, and I don't really see the point of having touch control otherwise unless it's entirely preemptive while waiting for the hardware to catch up.

Big Sur is good and enjoyable imo and I donít even find it especially spread out, but I use a 5k2k ultrawide so maybe Iím used to having things be spread out or something.

Maps is cool. Placing calls on your computer seems easier. Safari is better, Photos is better. Messages is improved.

Itís definitely a little janky right now in numerous ways but honestly I really like it and see a lot of promise here.

I've got at least 13 Gmail accounts spanning a decade. I'm likely to find more. I need them all in one e-mail client to cross-reference which accounts have been registered to which and consolidate my entire historical online presence into my two current accounts and a password manager. I also have a bundle of very old accounts I have saved as .mbox files that I'd like to bring into this if possible. I wouldn't be surprised to see the total number hit six figures, at all, if I can get everything into the same app.

I know somebody with a vast amount of email accounts who has tried every major MacOS mail client is reading this. Help? I'm getting a tension headache thinking about the scale of this and what hellish missed opportunities I'm going to find in this mess and how exactly I'm going to organise the evidence-of-mental-illness of a digital life contained in these inboxes. Saving a few hours and missing unforeseen speed bumps with picking a client would be a huge help.

Does Big Sur fix FaceTime not letting you place phone calls from your MBP if the lid is closed? Even when docked to two monitors and an external webcam, FaceTime refused to let me place phone calls unless the built-in webcam was active.

I donít have some amazing answer for you but I migrated my dad over to Fastmail and he had the same identity sprawl youíre describing.

Fastmail has a really handy import tool that works with Gmail (among other providers).

I took each account and had it import into the Fastmail account. Then I setup forwarding from the gmail address to the Fastmail account.

Once it was all done, there was only one email account for him to interact with and put on his devices.
