Last month I shared an email that Wolfram sent regarding incompatibility of Mathematica 12.0 with Mac OS 11 (Big Sur). Well, I just upgraded to Big Sur and decided to fire up Mathematica 12.0, to see if it would run, and it did. I tried some basic commands, and they executed. While I would say, this is good news on one level, am I alone in viewing the false "you must upgrade" emails as offensive?

My question is: Is Mathematica 12.0 supported on Big Sur? Are there any features that do not work correctly, and if yes, which ones?

    $\begingroup$ Ask them what specifically is broken and let us know. I would also rephrase the question to ask that to avoid closing it. "Am I alone in viewing the false "you must upgrade" emails as offensive?" is not a practical, answerable question, therefore off-topic. In its current form, it will get closed. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Voting to close. I will retract the vote, or vote to re-open, if it is rephrased. Asking what, if anything, is broken would be a very useful question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In one of his "CEOing" events on Twitch, I think it was, Stephen Wolfram mentioned that Mathematica 12.2 would be required to run under macOS Big Sur, owing to the OS's new hooks. $\endgroup$
