@CraigGrannell Yep, I got burned by that bait-and-switch, too.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to CraigGrannell

@CraigGrannell Unfortunately, I think that’s a longstanding rule that they’ve been avoiding simply by not doing a major upgrade.

@rosyna It sounds like that’s not sufficient for what @mxswd is doing, but I’d be interested to hear more.

@NSExceptional Yeah, I guess my point is why isn’t Stripe offering to do that? Why offer a half solution?

@jckarter I guess Tcl can’t be removed without breaking expect and various cross-platform apps.

@apple_observer Most of the widgets seem to be worse in Big Sur, and Find My was removed in Catalina, but I do like the new Photos widget.
