Hi y'awll,

Not sure where to put this, but this forum will suffice.

Here's a bit of news re; BIG SUR...courtesy of > ... g-problem/

For ref; > ... sis-macos/

So, where is APPLE's so called Privacy & Security policy heading?

<snip> Well, aside from control over your own system, Apple apps on Big Sur being able to bypass firewalls and VPNs is a huge privacy and security issue.

I'll stick with Windows....fer now..
