Is it safe and recommended to update from Mavericks to El Capitan 10.11.1?
I use a mac mini 2012 with i7 quadcore and 16 GB. I remained on mavericks, because I don't like the flat UI that Yosemite brings to the table and I've read that it is more ressourcehungry and slower.
What about El Capitan 10.11.1? Sure, the flat UI remains which is a bummer, but what about performance? Is it leaner again and as fast or faster as Snow Leopard and Mavericks?
I use the macmini mainly for videoediting with Final Cut Pro X.
And what about stability? Can I just update it directly without fearing that things break down, like the OS not booting anymore?
Or should I wait for some more bugfix-releases?
