note to self (and future tech necromancers): do not attempt to install and run macOS Big Sur public beta on an APFS partition on a 5400rpm hard drive connected via a cheap USB3 UASP bridge

i mean at least it boots but something in this entire chain has left it as slow as treacle

opening system preferences desktop and screen saver pane takes several minutes

this cannot be right
