I have been dual-booting my 16" MacBook Pro for awhile now, but I’m ready to delete the Catalina partition and move to Big Sur.
Now, I should mention that there’s a huge asterisk here: I have a Mac mini in my office (and connected to my monitor) which runs Mojave, so it’s not as if I am going 100% to Big Sur.
Mostly I just want to get away from Catalina A.S.A.P. If I could put Mojave on my MBPro, I would, but I can’t, so Big Sur it is.
Since April when I purchased it, my MBPro has been plagued by random reboots, where the whole system locks up, keychain goes crazy, I can’t even use the keyboard and mouse, and eventually it reboots itself.
I’ve tried everything, including reinstalling, and installing having Apple replace the logic board. It’s not hardware. It’s Catalina.
Why isn’t everyone seeing this? I have no idea. Dan Moren mentioned on The Rebound that he had seen it… once. I’ve seen it at least once a week.
So far there are 3 big things missing:
All Rogue Amoeba apps (I use SoundSource, Audio Hijack, Fission, and Loopback daily)
Karabiner (no hyperkey )
Bartender, but there are alternatives (which aren’t as good, but will suffice for the time being).
Pretty sad that the public beta of macOS 11 is more reliable than 10.15.6. And obviously that may not be true for everyone, but it’s definitely true for me.
