One Catalyst observation: Apps running under Catalyst (e.g. Podcasts) behave more like iOS apps than MacOS apps when it comes to dealing with hard resets. Where you might ⌘q a plain old MacOS app and expect it to forget its state on relaunch, Catalyst apps seem to want a force quit (⌥ right-click) to truly zero out. Needed to do that to clear four layers of blank search completion dropdowns in the Podcast app.

Which also causes me to wonder: Has Apple over the past twenty years shifted from “out early, few features, fewer bugs” to “out early, lots of features, more bugs per feature”? Feels so.
