    I've got a 105 MB/sec connection to Comcast.  It's coming in pretty good....should be done in 3 mins (40% done now).

     

    After that, I have a number of household Macs to upgrade.  Oldest are the 2008 Mac Pro I'm typing on and my 2007 Macbook Pro which is an iTunes and file server in the house.  Newest is my wife's 2013 MBAir.  Two more utility MacBooks are in the house too, 2009 vintage.  This will take awhile.

     

    EDIT:  OK, it's finished.  Time to distribute to the internal Macs and begin upgrades.

    Will this be an awesome update like 8.0.1?  Should I wait for Yosemite.0.2?

    Do you have a large family or can you just not help yourself? 8-)

    The build for GM 3.0 was 14A388a.  Can anyone confirm that the one for public release is the same one, or is it a different release?

    LOL.  An old computer still have usefulness as long as Apple doesn't obsolete them. :)

    Downloading now, I'm on 50Mb Virgin broadband in the UK and it's coming down just fine.

    I strongly recommend that everyone hold off upgrading to this for a few days, in light of the iOS 8.0.1 fiasco.

    If only I had waited 30 mins for 8.0.1 I'd have been fine.  I'm thinking I'll give this one at least 3 hours.

    Just rebooted in the new build, its called OS X 10.10 (14A389) so its different from GM Candidate 3

    The new release is called OS X 10.10 (14A389) so its different from the previous GM Candidate. Just booted into it, seems to run equally good as the most recent version has been, no worries.

    This is why I have several Macs in the house.  I can afford to "guinea pig" a couple.

     

    Installing now...

    Build nr according to developer.apple.com is 14A389. So it is a different build than GM 3.0

    Can't wait to try it AFTER they release OS X 10.10.1 and fix the bugs.

    BUG!!! After upgrading to Yosemite, OS X changes my security & privacy setting. Originally it was "allow apps downloaded from Anywhere" but Yosemite changes it to "Mac App store and identified developers". My Mac doesn't have a log in password set, and I am not able to unlock this particular screen to change it to "Anywhere"!!

    What do you mean you don’t have a login password? You have to. What happens when you try?

    OS X 10.10 (14A389)

    ... and my 500 GIGs of paid for iCloud Drive I paid for running the last dev release still isn't showing up.
