Well, I defeated Apple. Sort of... One of the good thing I have is called 'Time Machine'. I may not use it the way Apple intended. I have it set up as an external drive. I'm sure I'm not the only one. But it does mean that I can restore my Mac to previously saved times. I did that last night and today. It took about 7 hours and I'm glad I did it.
Everything works the way it did before and the way I liked it. iPhotos shows the file names again, the graphics aren't annoying-looking, and the help bar actually answers questions.
I may have to upgrade to the newest Apple OSX someday, but it will not be this day.
I will not go to the iCloud this day, I will not be forced onto Facetime this day, I will not accept the loss of features I valued on this day. Apple can be slipped around on its plans again on this day!
I have taken back my computer to when it worked for me, and that is all that matters to me.
And I will hope that when my last program will no longer function, that Apple or Microsoft will have finally solved their problems and made things that are user-friendlyagain.
Because if they don't, someone else will.
