Five years ago one of the reasons I would recommend MacOS was: it just doesn't get as many annoying notification from every little thing that's installed in the system as Windows.
For every single application that wants there are now:
- three alert styles
- three notification places
- badge app icon
- notification sound
Given that there are over twenty apps in that list (and it's a pretty fresh computer), it means that I'm potentially getting:
- 20 notifications
- in three different places (so, 60 notification in total)
- with sound
Good job Apple, good job.
