No way.

Hangs have become a defining feature of the LC experience.
They are quite common on both Mac and PC in various situations.

I'm not disputing that you fixed "something" recently.
Perhaps a specific Hang, or specific Hang trigger.
But there are plenty more waiting to be fixed.

Big Sur only? Not at all. I've had many LC hangs, and please note:
I don't even have Big Sur yet. Windows and Mac both have hangs.
Nor have they completely disappeared as of LC 9.6.2 rc-X. (AFAIK.)

Yeah, I know: it's always a verify specific bug. "File another report."
And we will! But face facts - this is not affecting one single LC area.

That means the Hang (or Hangs) may not be only local or specific.
It's more like a general or systemic flaw throughout LC.
Either a deeper flaw, or else a bad coding habit being repeated.

So that means LC needs to look at the bigger picture.
Thus, you can make the entire "LC experience" less about Hangs. Thanks!
