After going in depth with iOS 14 earlier this week, today we focus on macOS Big Sur. The biggest takeaway from my hands-on time with the follow up to macOS Catalina is that Apple's latest OS is clearly being designed with the future in mind.
Although it's unmistakably Mac, Big Sur is a departure from previous versions of macOS in terms of aesthetics. Everything, from the dock, to the menu bar, to window chrome, icons, and even sounds have been updated.
A good overview of the many, many changes in Big Sur.
Interesting sidenote: with both Windows and macOS now heavily catering towards touch use, this leaves Linux - and most of the smaller platforms, like the Amiga or Haiku - as one of the last remaining places with graphical user interfaces designed 100%
towards mouse input.
Big buttons, lots spacing, lots of wasted space - it';s coming to your Mac.
