Mac Os Support For Connectivity Of Portable Media

Upgrade to macOS Big Sur

A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 2 30 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2 40 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings. The art of ripping DVDs might be lost on today’s optical drive-challenged Macs, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a good video converter on your Mac. Open-source, multi-platform, and free.

Before installing this upgrade, make sure that your Mac is ready.

I am biased. I have been a Mac guy since I bought my first one in 1984, before there was Windows. II occasionally use the Windows machines at work, and they are horrible. The software is poorly written, uncreative, unintuitive, and soul crushing. I think it really makes people stupider when they use Windows machines. It's like listening to pop music.

By 'Associated Utilities' I am not sure if you mean software in general or 'Utilities', which are more maintenance or system software related items. There are definitely more Windows Software Titles, but there is no shortage of good software for macs these days. Also PC software can run on a mac in various ways, with emulation software, or macs can just boot directly into windows; the converse is not generally so true. Most (not all) professional audio, video, and commercial art is done on Macs. Windows still rules the corporate non-creative world because the machines needed are cheaper and less powerful and Apple doesn't make lower end cheaper machines. Microsoft Office is the mainstay of that corporate world; there are Mac versions of the Office Apps that communicate well with PC's.
