It's only a matter of days before Apple lets go of macOS Big Sur. By joining the number 11 to its operating system, Apple is looking to mark the occasion and show how much this version is breaking after Catalina.
When he installs this version for the first time, the user will remember first of all the new interface of Apple's operating system, interface which may not meet with unanimity as the choices made by Alan Dye's team are debatable. We can cite the menu bar which loses in readability, the new icons that remind us of the best days of MSN or the many interface elements that we do not know if they were really designed for use with the trackpad or the finger (read : macOS Big Sur : these regressions that can annoy).
But what might appeal to the user first in the end, this is the weight of the installer of macOS Big Sur. Since beta 3, the development of macOS 11.0 is unified. In other words, the archive allows macOS to be installed on both an Intel Mac and an Apple Silicon Mac, which to date is limited to DTK. Result, the installer flirts with the 12 Go, where Catalina needed half the amount.

I didn't understand anything about the possibility of having Windows or not on Silicon macs.. parallel works(out) or not on it ?
Paralels will work, but cannot emulate the current version of Windows (designed for x86 processors). This is the reason why Microsoft should make available an ARM version of Windows.
If with all ARM applications 32 and 64 bits, and x86 32 bits only for now and x86 64 bits from November 2020 for users who have opted for the “Windows Insider” test versions, and start 2021 for the others.
In short, all applications (excluding virtualization apps) which now work on Windows 10 Intel also work under Windows 10 ARM if a version 32 bits exists and for those in 64 bits only, they will also work very soon.
A derivative of Windows 8, but for ARM devices. X86 apps were of course not working. Only Microsoft Store software could run.
It was a monumental oven. A single surface of 2012 was provided (surface that I owned for 6 months before selling it to the highest bidder),and only four other tablets from four other brands (dont Samsung) used it as an OS. They quickly abandoned the ship never to try the experience again.. Personally, I understood why.
In fact you just have to understand the difference between EMULATION and VIRTUALIZATION
The second amounts to "hiding" from an operating system (type windows) that there is another OS between it and the hardware
The first is to build a fake software platform so that this same windows thinks it is on intel
The second is what parallel or VMware do, the first, well we have to admit that we haven't heard about it for some time but there was VirtualPC doing that.
In terms of performance, it's simple: virtualization can go as far as losing nothing, emulation if you reach 50% the same performance is a feat
What I also like, this is the all iOS control center. It allows grouping a series of controls (wifi, Bluetooth …) under the same icon. An app like Vanilla loses its raison d'être under Big Sur.
What if the rapprochement between the iPad and the Mac ARM could lead to the use of VM on iPad … we could finally have what a Surface Pro never could offer, namely the power of a laptop combined with the touch of the stylus on an iPad.
Ugly? in any case not enough to make a fuss, or a title…
And the difference with the current ones is not obvious
Good iPhone 12 it's nice … of 5G …, a blue color …. awesome … l’iPhone 11 better, is a site.
Microsoft is already selling Windows ARM licenses, an OEM. A virtualization solution vendor can easily buy an OEM license, on the other hand, he will have to implement a mechanism to ensure that the OEM license is respected, that is, Windows can only be installed on a specific instance of the virtualization tool, the one with which it is supplied, and no other.
So with a little work, publishers such as VMWare or Parallels can sell Windows ARM OEM as an exclusive bundle with their virtualization software. But will they or will they prefer to wait until Microsoft agrees to sell non-OEM licenses? ?
It's not stupid, after all si parallel announced that for 100 € more in the annual basin the image of Windows Arm was included, it could work
The geek in me, me actually, can't help but be curious and want to touch. What if I bought myself one, I say to myself… and if I came back to Mac as the main machine…
These questions I swear. I have Mac mini and MacBook Pros at home and in my lab, literally stacks, and I don't touch it. So no, I'm not going to. Duh.
But your PC won't be NEW….. it will not be an unknown land full of wonderful promises and frustrating disappointments….
“But your PC won't be NEW….. it will not be an unknown land full of wonderful promises and frustrating disappointments….
But I could fire 100% AMD instead of Intel and Nvidia, I could do a custom liquid cooling with rigid PMMA tubes…
I find it hard to see the point of emulating Windows ARM (if attempted a license is for sale), while what makes the interest of the OS is its application catalog of its "old" (and current) air.
Windows 10 ARM provides access to almost the entire Windows application catalog, including Intel, because it has an x86 emulator, for the moment 32 bits only (but there are a lot of Windows x86 apps available in 32 bits), and 64 bits from the month of November (So in time for Apple Silicon Macs) for testers (Windows insiders, test program open to all), and for everyone at the very beginning of the year 2021.
En parallèle de plus en plus d’apps sont portés en natif ARM64 pour Windows 10 ARM.
Health, il faut espérer que cet émulateur x86 sera performant.
Si je comprends bien, sous Mac ARM et donc macOS « ARM », on va lancer par exemple l’outil VMware pour virtualiser Windows ARM à partir duquel on va lancer une application 64 bits via cet émulateur.
Ça fait quand même pas mal de couches logicielles pour espérer une exécution optimale de cette application.
Qu’en penses-tu ?
Definitely, la dégringolade HARD et SOFT continu ( peut être pas HARD, mais soft surement) Petite question , quand la bascule Interl ARM sera effective, quid de Big Sur ? ? Il y aura une version pour le MacPro et une pour les machines ARM ? ? ? ? Tous le reste basculera “Vintage” ? ? ? ? Since “départ de Steve”, consistency has also been seen elsewhere ! ! ! ! So this is the beginning of the end . So I might have a chance to get a MacPro 2019 ( Cataline, Big Sur ! ! !) at a reasonable price and it will be the last ! ! !
