So Apple is sending a request to their server for each app that you open on macOS and slowing you down in the process.

I ended up using Little Snitch to block many attempts to phone home when I used a Mac. For a privacy focused company, Apple does way too much of that.

I wrote this post on Opensource.com on my transition from Mac to Linux and how you can do the same.

@markosaric Soooo, if I read that correctly I should be fine with directing requests to ocsp.apple.com to 0.0.0.0 in /etc/hosts as long as I don't upgrade to MacOS Big Sur, right?
