Apple has pushed out the public beta of macOS 11.0 which includes a variety of new features (features not found in previous builds) as well as correcting known bugs from previous builds (link). My impression so far is that it is in a better position than it was last time and I think that has primarily due to the fact that the focus has been under the hood changes along with many of these projects having gone on for years behind the scenes before they made the big announcement in much the same way that Steve Jobs talked about MacOS X leading a secret double life.

So I wouldn’t be surprised if the same thing has been happening since Apple developed their own silicon – they’ve been compiling macOS on both Intel and Apple Silicon just in case that day happened and Apple needed to make the switch. I also wonder how many of the drivers that are used in iOS are transferrable over to macOS – are they going to be pushed out of kernel space into the user space? It’ll be interesting to see how it all alines once the first batch of Apple Silicon based Macs are released.

I went to the doctor on Thursday and he advised me to stay at home for the rest of the week until I was fully recovered. It is gradually clearing up – I think it is good to avoid too much stress and getting a good night sleep. I think that is what I’m going to focus on when I get back to work next week – get a good night sleep by getting into bed earlier so then even if I don’t go to sleep straight away I will be relaxed and ready to go to sleep because my mind will be relaxed rather than buzzing with activity and thus difficult to get to sleep.
