I waited before doing my MacOS Catalina review because reviewing an OS on day one isn't always the best thing. This breaks down Catalina's all-new features and what you need to know before you decide to upgrade.

Upgraded thinking things would be fine... nuked my computer. Do not upgrade to Catalina, unless you want an OS that doesn't work properly

I never experienced soo many problems with an "upgrade" to Catalina. - 32 bit software didn't worked anymore and some software can not be upgraded to 64 bit. - My keyboard "died" soon after and i was forced to buy a new one (the old one still works occasionally). - The mouse drops out of connection every now and then and replugging it fixes it till it happens again. - Burned-in images on screen. - Quicktime Player fails regularly to play videos. - Internet connection sometimes freezes. I installed/downgraded Mojave about a week ago (which was a pain because it requires a format of your main drive). Some of the problems still occur though. The burned-in images and the mouse connection still remain a problem. It looks like Catalina just messes up your computer far beyond an Operating System. All the issues i had and still have happened after the installation of Catalina.

Hi! My Mac Air 2019 keeps showing a green flicker or glitch whenever I watch Netflix. Then, I looked up for solutions and most websites say that an upgrade will solve the problem. I just watched this review and now I'm hesitant to upgrade because I like my OS the way it is. What should I do about the flickering? Send help please :( thanks!

DO NOT UPGRADE TO CATALINA!!! Worst program ever!!! Their reason for creating a new program is that you move up from 32 bit programs to 64 bits, then you see the usual claims to get rid of bugs, etc. B.S. Catalina changes the format of Itunes & all Office programs, and they have the worst Word program of any document program I've used. Microsoft then wants users to pay for the new Office programs. It's a disaster!

Catalina would randomly crash my 2017 iMac so much that it caused a drive to fail on my LaCie 5big and ended up costing me about $300 and a whole weekend of wasted time trying revert back to Mojave and save all my files. Not worth.

You can have it both ways: I refuse to rent software from the greedy jerks at Adobe so I created a second volume on my iMac and installed Catalina on the second volume. You can boot to either volume so you can still use your old 32 bit applications and software ... like Photoshop CS 5.1 ... in your original Mojave or High Sierra volume and any software that runs better in a 64-bit environment in the new Catalina volume. Do your research and BACK UP EVERYTHING before you try this! Also be aware that there is a big difference between creating another volume and partitioning your hard drive. Here's a good video on the process of creating a second volume and installing Catalina on the new volume. trwomen.com/id/video-ZDbydW0t_aY.html

Great Review, I agree with it. I just want to comment about a tylerio article regarding macOS Catalina. He said it was like vista. I think that's insulting, Vista was horrible, slow and clunky. From an end user perspective, macOS Catalina has been performing better and faster than El Capitan and High Seirra for me, all my OSs are clean installs on my 3Ghz, PCIe SSD 16GB Mac Mini. macOS Catalina has actually positively surprised me so far in its performance, it's given me a simarly positive experience as Windows 10 almost.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU USE STEAM, your 32 bit games will not work on it since Catalina upgrades to 65 bit, it’s garbage and a huge mistake

Downgrades from Previous Verisons of macOS: 1) iTunes has been subdivided into 3 separate apps and seems less convenient. Also, iTunes has been a staple of Apple until now when they shot it dead with the Catalina update. No one was really asking for this. 2) Although the remove of 32-bit support may be good for potential future performance enhancement, there are applications that are 64-bit that use something else that is 32-bit. It would have been better if the exclusion of 32-bit applications was gradual and procedural so that developers could have time to make appropriate changes instead of having only a warning for Mojave for 32-bit applications not being optimized and then for Catalina 32-bit software is banned like a plague. 3.) If Apple ever wants to seriously attempt to get into the gaming market (aside from not having very pathetic default GPUs), they have to serious backtracking the unsigned restriction is not exclusive to apps. It applies to frameworks, libraries, etc., which is extremely annoying, which is going to force anyone who makes a mac version of a game to include a disclaimer about instability of the game managing to even get to the title screen.

I am still using Mojave, and put off the upgrades since Catalina's release. Mostly b/c I am older (LOL) and don't want to mess up itunes. But, now with Pandemic happening, I feel like I probably need to upgrade for security reasons. I'm a casual user...but, it seems everything I do is on my macbook pro. I use it a lot lately for video calls. I have a 2018 with 2.2. Ghz . I mostly like having my itunes library as it is, but am williing to change as long as it's not a big headache. I have certain online radio station set too. And, yeah, 1st World Problems LOL I use DSL (wired) so I wonder how long an upgrade would take anyway, and if having Catalina will help the (moderate to slow DSL speed) be more efficiient? All those extra i's you see is b/c my keyboard is glitchy and I don't feel like $$$ paying to have iit repaired. :/ Anyway, I'd be curious to know if Catalina could give my DSL effiiciency a leg up? Thanks for your video. Looking forward to hearing back!

This is hands down the WORST update from Apple in its history. I used to do my main work from my desktop and now it's basically unusable for my work. iTunes/Music is straight disorganized shit, I can't use my remote anymore, the music buttons ( play, pause, etc.) SUCK and make no damn sense. Wish I had read up on it before installing. Apple is constantly going to shit and screwing over its consumers.

Does anyone have a list of 32 and/or 64 bit apps? Are all Adobe 2017 and Final Cut Pro X (10.4.6) considered 64 bit? How do you check it? Thanks.
Bruce Titus
Bruce Titus Aylar önce
You can have your computer provide the list. Do a spotlight search for "System Information". Scroll down to "Software" and then click on "Applications". It might take 30 seconds or so for the screen to populate with your applications. Once your applications list shows up, click on the far right column that says "64-bit". All of your 32 bit applications will show up at the top of the list.

Catalina wouldn't erase from my drive because it created an extra partition on my ssd. I had to use time machine and install it to another HD. Called Apple and after hours of phone calls. I just decided to take the ssd and erase it on my Windows 10 and clone the back up HD. It's essentially malware and this guy is not being totally honest. In addition, clean my Mac tends to slow your mac down. I use Malware Bytes. AVOID THIS DUMPSTER FIRE!!!
