Actually, this is what I found quite funny about the "prepare" advice.
As mentioned, my iMac is 2 1/2 years old and has been through 2 OS updates and several software updates. Through all of that I've had absolutely zero problems (other than what appears to be a memory leak in InDesign). I had issues with Time Machine but that "was my" fault.
In other words, my Mac just worked.
So now I have a problem with this particular update and it's "my" fault??
That statement just seemed a tad stupid to me after having disclosed my history with this computer.
I will give it a rest now, but, just to let you know, another Mac site seems to have more tolerant members who are allowed to have problems and it seems that there are quite a few, there are well over 500 comments with many of those comments diagnosing various ailments... so, beware (and, I guess, prepare).
