Things that can make macOS better
I use macOS as the main OS in my computer, actually the only one in my personal computer, but I have other computers with Linux as desktop too, but macOS is the one that I use the most. And over the time I have learned how to get more from the OS as the default installation.
For example, I currently don’t use Spotlight, I use another tool called “Alfred” you all might know it.
Alfred > Spotlight
Spotlight was a good thing back in the days were it was basically a search tool for the OS living in the corner, where nobody looks. But it was not good as a some sort of launcher, and having all my apps in the Dock was not a good idea. Then Alfred arrived and it came with other functionality like workflows and search in places where spotlight just don’t do, also the fuzzy word search (like GC and expect to get Google Chrome) works very well.
I’ve changed my keyboard
After a couple of years my Apple “Magic” keyboard started to fail, there is just one key that is failing but is a very important key… the “Left Shift” key.
It is a very important key since a lot of key shortcuts depend on it, and I had to get a new keyboard for just one key. Maybe if a complete row was malfunctioning I could feel a bit less frustrated, but one key.. one freaking key..

So, for the next macOS version (Really High Sierra)… I predict all Apple apps icons will be round.
That would be great don’t you think?..
Actually no, I loved the “realistic” icons Mac OS X used to have.

Mail app in macOS is great, but it would be better if…
I love to use macOS mail app, it works great from the point of view of a desktop app, it looks and behave as intended but is definitively not perfect. There are some features that would make it perfect.

How is that a small (semi invisible) application can drain your battery and slow your computer
I never thought that Magnet, an application to snap windows from one place to another would raise the CPU usage from 0 to ~80% every time I switch from app to app. I guess this thin makes some sort of computing every time I do that switch.
