|I have this itch, the moment a beta release is out -- I gota have it. A week ago was a really big day -- I spend few hours upgrading to (all still in beta) Mac OS 10.13, XCode 9, IOS 11, Watch OS 4. Not surprising, quite a few things break and everything is sloooooow to the point it's embarrassing and I have to explain to coworkers why I can't answer Skype calls reliably any more, and why can't I share my screen on gotomeeting.
I actually do not mind that I have to reboot my computer more often than usual because it freezes. But, there is this special feeling of beeing on the bleeding edge, touching the newest thing with my own hands -- how can one beat that argument?
I anticipate reactions, some may say -- stupid. And I'm just wondering, how common this "stupidity" is? Am I the only one who has this itch? How do others cope with embarrassing situations that arise because of beeing on the bleeding edge?|
