It's known in that it's a bug I've read about now 10 times over... Auto-save somehow is broken and always causes crashes.

Actually... a lot of issues can almost exclusively be blamed on graphics hardware vendors not doing their homework. Can't well use an acceleration framework when the graphics driver has lotsa bugs and even for "simple" OpenGL most apps a full to the brim with extra code to probe for bugs and provide workarounds for specific driver versions and models of cards. Naturally with a Mac's limited choice on the hardware side this will be a different story. The beauty of Metal is probably going to be that Apple take a lot of that off the shoulders of devs by building it into the system core and doing all the dirty work...

Feature-wise DX has long offered more stuff, but is a lot more difficult to program. In that regard Metal is actually just catching up while at the same time being a lot simpler. But then so will be DX12. For OpenGL the main issue is that they got strung up too long on retaining backward compatibility, which imposes some serious limitations. Otherwise of course there's all kinds of politics from the participating industries and companies in this bizarre love triangle that also hinders more efficient development of some things...

There is no such thing and that is that.
