My biggest peeve with Apple is that they don't pay attention to minor issues.

In each new version of the OS I find minor glitches that have been perpetuated through multiple versions.

I know. That's why it's so aggravating when there are a whole host of people complaining, it just makes no difference.

Yeah, one would think Apple would listen to their customers. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case, and it's getting worse and worse.

Yep. It's not their baby, it was Jobs' baby and he cared. Sometimes I wish I didn't hate Windows/PCs'Gates so much. I feel trapped but still prefer Apple.

I've got to back off of my Music bug, Rita.

After paying close attention for a while I've learned that the issue occurs with only one file - my 10 hour white noise recording - which I guess has become corrupted and somehow affects the entire app.

I'll re-record and see what happens. (But don't hold your breath.)

I hear you, Marty!

I am STILL peeved that they removed the MOSAIC SCREENSAVER from back in the "Lion" days. I have no idea why they would bother to remove it from the usual bundle of options which were in the earliest days and remain therein today (e.g. Classic, Shell, Flurry, etc.).

OK, the second beta of OS 11.3 was released yesterday:

https://www.macrumors.com/2021/02/17/apple-seeds-macos-big-sur-11-3-beta-2/

In actuality, there is nothing, at least "on the surface", that helps me with V11.3. But what I am anticipating is help with these issues, previously pointed out by joemikeb:

"I have no experience with Big Sur on Intel Macs and there are definite differences, but from posts I have seen on other product support, web sites macOS 11.2 apparently broke some things associated with external boot drives that were working in 11.1. It appears the problem revolves around changes in the utility used to bless a boot drive. I have also seen reports similar to yours about the version of Disk Utility used to erase a volume. In both cases, early results indicate both issues are fixed in the current macOS 11.3 beta. Given macOS 11 is the biggest rework of Apple's OS since Mac OS X, you may have made the switch one update too soon."

That helpful post came about when I had issues with the latest release of Tech Tool Pro and V11.2 of Big Sur.

Nope, it's really a bug, but I can't pin down the exact specifics other than that pausing a song with a keyboard command sometimes affects playing a new song in the Music interface.

And here's another bug, albeit an innocuous one, because the red box disappears after a few seconds.

It happens when I QuickLook stuff on my desktop. It happened once in ~/Library/Pictures when I went looking. It seems to affect docs only, not folders.

I don't see that bug. When I use Quicklook to view desktop documents, everything appears to be normal.

It's erratic, Jon.

I hadn't seen it in a while before yesterday, and I no longer see it now, nor can I think of anything I may have done to trigger it.

If not outright buggy, I'm certainly finding Big Sur annoying.

Does it happen consistently with the same file? I ask because some of my photos (which were scanned many years ago and several OSs ago) look peculiar, but that's consistent with those particular photos.

Tough to say, because it doesn't happen consistently, but although my screenshot was of a newly created file, it also happened with files that have been on my desktop for months, if not years during yesterday's stretch.

FWIW, the issue with Quicklook and some older photos predates Big Sur.

My issue is definitely new to Big Sur, and, at least at the moment, it doesn't affect pics.
