Default Re: Big Sur 11.6 vs 11.6.2

It would be nice to have both of the two options:

1. Updated testing on time for eventual long term standing and use of 11.6.x
point-x releases.
2. I also would LOVE to regularly updated MacOS for all the other bug fixes, especially security fixes.

I've been using ProTools for my professional work for 11 years: much of my work is for a company with large corporate grade security protocols, even just to upload audio; don't want hackers getting into their networks. Being able to update for bugs and securities ONLY requires the testing to clear option 2 above, as well. It needs to move in that direction, not the reverse.

Update schedule has always been very very slow. Even if their testing noted which features had issues, that would be better than "guessing" and "hoping" which is the necessary adoption of the users. We never or rarely get to "expect" a tested release or stay up to date with OS security release until months or years after an OS version is not being updated by Apple anymore..

This issue is that work is my livelihood, and I need security updates, and I also need functioning audio because that's the nature of my work. Digidesign long ago, and now AVID, have a set mission objective to serve their users. Such delays are really annoying and often obstructive.

I much prefer when companies communicate more to their users and at least keep up to date with testing. This is just a very general digression.
