Default macOS Big SUR changed my life

Happy to report since owning my 2018 mac mini since launch that with the BIG SUR update the startup chime is back, it even has more bass to it then the older startup chimes.

I thought they did away with the startup chime.... I have some old iMac G5's here, the startup chime is my favorite part.....when I heard it, I always knew the recap was successful!

They did only on the 2016 up Macs but the old 2017 carry over air still had it, now its enabled again for all macs but you can disable it in the sound control panel.

Yup my iMac G5 is still in the garage haven't booted it up in about 4 years and I did recap it with a kit bought from you back in 2011! i'll have to try and fire it up again.

if you watched the video, apple was already doing it - possibly for years.
the update just puts a stop to you blocking it.

IMO apple turned to the darkside when they left Motorola and started using Intel.
and that's another thing, all these intel based machines have the ME filth in them - that's as bad as it could get.
the ME is a seperate microcontroller that can acess your harddrives, ram and networking even in sleepmode.

maybe that's why the latest windows versions dont like to do a proper shutdown - just a thought!!

at least m$ has ways to stop or severely halt telemetry collection

I don't believe there is any way to disable it in mos

Worse, is when you have a pre-10th-gen Core i-series processor and the motherboard maker refused to give a UEFI BIOS update to include the latest update to Intel CSME. (converged security and management engine) (for the very late versions of the ME)

Some people are left in the cold, because the computer makers refused to offer a BIOS with an updated CSME for PCs with a 9th-gen Core i series and earlier!

Both of my main systems are Ryzens.

The second one is a Ryzen 5 2600 on an AsRock A320M/ac motherboard.

incidentally, who wants to bet if this osx update has "contact tracing" hidden in it?

I have a 2014 macbook air but so far I think i'll stay away from the update with my older machines, the 2018 mini was crashing for no reason with 10.14.6 mojave so updating to big sur ive had no more crashes, traded my privacy for stability i guess, sad that it crashed more then my windows machines....
