quite happy with Big Sur, but this very macupdate app is a disgrace. I have been paying for the app for several months without being able to use it because macupdate still haven't updated their app. Now I am receiving reminders to renew my macupdate subscription although not being able to use the app. Guess what i will be doing...

Since the last "update" (from Big Sur 11.0.1 to Big Sur 11.1), crashes and restarts on its own as soon as the computer goes to sleep. Also, for the first five to ten minutes after the unasked for restart, the fairly new computer is slower than slug. Furthermore, Apple keeps pushing two-face authentication on all devices every couple of minutes. Retards at Apple, like ca. 50% of your user base, I'm not interested in a two-way authentication: stop buggering Me, idiots!
