Brent Simmons writes about a creepy feeling I share – that one day I have to stop updating macOS and/or even stop buying new Macs just to maintain a status quo I own. ↦

Macs carry the flame for the revolution. They’re the computers we own, right? They’re the astounding, powerful machines that we get to master.

Except that lately, it feels more and more like we’re just renting Macs too, and they’re really Apple’s machines, not ours.

I hope that moment doesn’t come when Apple switches to ARM on the Mac. That would be a major bummer.
