“Disparaging the boot is a bootable offense!”

The “Quarantine” episode of Mythic Quest was brilliant! Excellent TV.

I've seen anecdotal evidence that macOS Catalina is slow to launch apps, but it also seems to be slow to switch between already-running apps? cmd-tabbing between different apps on a 2018 MacBook Pro sometimes takes a few seconds to show a winodw. sigpipe.macromates.com/2020/ma
