Gave up on macOS for now, using Ubuntu 16.04. Unity is really nice and I'm about to get the GTX-1080 installed tomorrow. I'm not sure I'll head back to macos on this system, but after I just got a iPad Pro, I can see the polish and enjoyment on that platform. It really feels like we are not too fa from a "desktop" iPad.
I feel ya aokman! I am in a similar predicament - heavily invested in Apple (software AND hardware) but several machines are now outdated and the two primary ones are (a) DEAD! and (b) unreliable... about to die any time.
So I have moved to Workstation with (ta-da) a 1060GPU (power and efficiency) - but then stone me, bloody nVidia does not support them despite this unified driver architecture theyŕe always bragging about.
Of course, I have GNU+Linux boxes to fall back on (this is a Mate 16.04 station) but some of my software ONLY runs on node-locked Mac licenses and/or is only available for Macs. This is infuriating and even Windows is not a viable option even if I was prepared to go that route (which Iḿ not).
Ever since Steve Jobs got poorly, the firm has gone to hell and from what Iḿ seeing, things are only getting worse. You can only rely on your reputation and customer good will for so long before people start looking elsewhere.
