    My MacbookPro summer 2012, has 91gigs free, out of 500gigs. Upgraded to Catalina and severely slowed processing time in everything I do. How much MORE, slow down, do you think, this new Big Sur OS will affect my MacBook Pro? Do you think I should bother with this update and potentially cause even more 'spinning wheel of death' waiting? Thanks, and I really appreciate your info! jm

    John: New operating systems don't necessarily mean slower performance. Sometimes they mean faster performance on older machines. But it is irrelevant in this case since you can't install Big Sur on a 2012 MacBook Pro. I'd look into the real reason why your Mac is slow now -- could be apps or extensions installed, could be hardware issues. Just having Catalina isn't the reason.

    I wonder if there is a way to change the pinky hue in Big Sur? I don't mean the accents but the main colour. I watched this video and learned quite a bit about Big Sur, THANK YOU and thank you for your consideration.

    Alison: The menu bar and windows pick up the color from the desktop background. Just try a different one and you'll see. I actually have a video on this coming next week.
