macOS 11.0 Big Sur Released

Apple (Hacker News, Slashdot):

macOS Big Sur, the latest version of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system, is now available to Mac users as a free software update. Big Sur introduces a beautiful redesign and is packed with new enhancements for key apps including Safari, Messages, and Maps, as well as new privacy features. And Big Sur has been engineered, down to its core, to take full advantage of all the power of the M1 chip to make the macOS experience even better for the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini. The combination of Big Sur and M1 truly takes the Mac to a whole new level with incredible capabilities, efficiency, and more apps than ever before, while maintaining everything users love about macOS.

Catalina was the first time I ever waited to upgrade OS X (2 months). Big Sur might be the first time I never upgrade. When the very first thing on Apple's list of features is "we changed the UI" and the rest of the page makes me sleepy, there doesn't seem to be much of a reason to upgrade.

If Activity Monitor is any indiction, they should have named this one macOS Big Memory!
