Yosemite upgrade stops Macs with aftermarket SSDs from booting

Quote:
There’s a new security feature in OS X Yosemite that could render your computer unbootable. If you’ve been using an SSD with Trim support enabled, proceed with caution.

Turning on Trim is a great way to extend the life of SSDs and keep them performing at the peak of their abilities. OS X, however, only supports Trim on Apple-supplied SSDs. If you upgraded the drive at some point, you couldn’t simply switch on Trim and go about your business as usual. Apple’s drivers won’t allow it.

I'm thinking Apple wants folks to buy their certified by Apple SSD. They have been getting away with controlling hard ware for a long time. Mac people love it that way. They are not capable of making their own choice and decisions.

Don't tell anybody but this system has 2 Intel SSD's and 1 Samsung.
Don't tell Microsoft of my in breading with their operating system.

One Mac guy on my Networking course was complaining that he had to chose a location and file name to save files in Windows.

Apparently you should be able to dump an unnamed file somewhere at random and the computer should auto-magically retrieve it without any user input.

Don't get me started on the so-called superior Mac GUI.
I find it strangely unusable (even simple tasks like copying a pathname are a baffling ordeal).

People complain about Linux GUIs but they are superior to Mac GUIs.
The only exceptions (I've tried) are Unity and GNOME3, which copy Mac GUI elements (e.g. disembodied menus).

Seems ridiculous. Typical Apple trying to control their customers.

If Microsoft tried doing such a thing they would be in court forever.

Almost unbelievable. I'm very disappointed with Apple in this case. But I'm still an Apple fan. Luckily I haven't had to switch drive on my iMac yet.

A typical Apple rip-off. I would never buy anything from them.

It is like those Windows PCs where you cannot run Linux. I had to return a $1200 laptop to Sony because it would not run Linux. I now have the same problem with my Asus Transformer. But that is only a little toy. Those systems just have a retarded BIOS.

I'm just wondering why we are not hearing any accusations of monopolistic behavior regarding this issue.

If this had been MS and Windows, the pet media monkeys would have been screaming by now.
