    I’ve found that the Wikipedia article on macOS Sierra offers a very clean an easy-to-read list of the new features in the upcoming operating system for Mac desktops.

    macOS Sierra was announced at WWDC 2016.

    The public beta will be available in July and it should be ready for consumers by October or November.

    For a release that involves something as huge as changing the name of the OS, the new Sierra default wallpaper is shamefully similar to El Capitan’s.

    Surely there’s some California landmark that’s a little bit more different than that, if only Apple had looked hard enough.

    OS X El Capitan:

    I don't think Apple's goal was to find a Califonia landmark/mountain range that looked strikingly different from El Capitain. They just wanted the wallpaper that's aesthetically pleasing. I don't find it the least bit shameful.

    Hehe. :D

    Side note: I don't think I'll ever be able to disassociate the word shame from Cersei.

    I like the Sierra wallpaper better than El Capitan.

    I tried installing this last night, but my MBP got stuck on the install progress window saying "33 minutes remaining" for well over an hour before I gave up and went to sleep.

    Woke up this morning and restarted my MBP and it seems to have reverted to El Capitan, but now I can't figure out how to try and install the beta again. When I go into the app store, it shows macOS Sierra Public Beta as being downloaded, but I can't figure out how to install it.

    Any ideas?

    I'm changing all my wallpapers now to Chicago Cubs logos. This is our year!

    They certainly appear to be making a run this year.
