    Well, it is just that I don't NEED macupdate. I can get the apps I want from the Mac App Store, or the developer directly, and not take the risk. Aggregators like macupdate had a reason to exist 10 years ago, but today they are no longer needed or useful. So, why go there and take the risk?

    or the developer directly,

    +1, I agree and my first choice also if and when possible.

    Sometimes I use MacUpdate to find the developers site, just saying.

    That's about all I use it for now. And even then not very often.

    I used to use it far more often when I was downloading software more often. K'd check once to twice a week just to see what was out. If I checked kess iften it took too long to go through the list. I had pretty much stopped doing that by the time they had the issue adding stuff to the downloads.

    Hey Sly:

    How does "Gatekeeper" operate in Mojave? Rumor is that it's more final (can't be changed) than from High Sierra.

    I don't know if I'll ever get to even try it out but, I imagine it will be even more locked-down and restricted with the direction Apple has been going lately with their OS.

    Apple does have some suggestions for developers to allow their software to be installed here:

    It's still not as bad as what Microsoft has in store for Windows. I came across this yesterday, https://www.computerworld.com/articl...u-know-it.html

    Yikes!!! But I guess many can and will just stay using what they have.

    I understand some are still using Windows 7 and I'm not sure what the Mac OS X equivalent would be to it…


    EDIT: It looks like the equivalent would be Mac OS X Lion for Windows 7.

    Hey, some members here are still happily using Snow Leopard just as I was less than a year ago.

    You have to love Microsoft.... That line in the article that says Microsoft messed up its own apps (Word, Outlook, File Explorer) with its Spring update made me laugh. And now they want control of every Windows desktop. LOL I think I still have my old DOS disks laying around somewhere.

    And today's business news says Apple had a great quarter.

    I've only done a couple of installation since I started running the beta but here's what I've noticed so far:

    1. Opening software downloaded from the eeb still triggers that warning asking whether to open the software, open a web, page or quit.
    2. The Security & Privacy settings related to Gatekeeper seem to be the same as they werer under High Sierra.
    3. If software is going to be asking for control of your mic or camera you are asked whether or not to give it permission.

    It looks like it's also forum double posting for you. Is that a new Mojave "feature"???
