It's a Snow Leopard style release. And so much the better.
I'm all for major under the hood improvements plus a few new conveniences.
I agree absolutely. I'm so tired of Apple using WWDC to announce roadmaps and tools for so-called "developers". I want the old days back, when WWDC focused entirely on the question "What's the kewl stuff that Yuck9 wants?" Oh, how Steve and Jony would scramble to create the next OS X release's "official Y9-approved" features! (The Sailor Moon screen savers of 2009 were particularly beautiful. Bravo!)

Screw that. Where's the Flying Toasters screensaver with the new translucent/ frost glass background?
It’s not the truth; that should be BLINDINGLY obvious.
Who said anything about hardware, goalpost mover? Knock it off.
If El Capitan/10.11 is another Snow Leopard, then my big concern is what are we going to loose when 10.12 comes around?
If we were going to lose anything, we would have lost it WITH 10.11.

They’re holding it ransom for $4.00. Mowing man’s there, too.
That would cause burn-in.
I hope WiFi Works in this release.
Have you had any problems with BetterTouch like the cursor anchored to a file or a window? I use BetterTouch and that happens periodically and the only way I can unanchored it is to restart. I'm not positive that it's BetterTouch that causes it, but I can't think of anything else. I posted that question but AI members haven't responded as yet.
This has really been annoying me.
I would have sworn that Apple has previously used the El Capitan code name for a hardware product in the Power Mac range.
Am I imagining this? I haven't seen it referenced in the WWDC coverage.
I believe that you will find your answer here:
Just a few quick thoughts and questions while I'm sipping morning coffee. I'm sure others can add to my list.
Come on Apple, please listen to your dedicated customers!
From Gmail users.
Will Pages and other Apple software get commands and features back that used to be there in pre-Yosemite versions?
Will AirDrop finally, always work?
Just as long as it can send a file to someone on the same network without them having to be in AirDrop at the time. That was an idiotic decision.
Will the Finder start remembering user preferences in List view rather than changing the Name column width at random?
I would love the ability to set a UNIVERSAL view option that would automatically apply to all Finder windows so that I don’t have to literally go through and resize/re-kern spacing on every single window.
Will iTunes...you know...go back to being a useful program? Can previous listing/view/search options come back?
I want to resize my artwork again. I... don’t see why that’s so hard for Apple to understand. I have this nice, gorgeous, high-res artwork for everything. I WANT TO SEE IT.
Will Safari ever become popular enough where developers and users write more extensions to increase the usability like Firefox?
There are hundreds of Safari extensions; I’m not sure what you’re saying.
Well lets take just some menus.
That's off the top of my head. I have 43 extensions installed in Firefox and all play well together. Firefox doesn’t bog down and is customized for my preferences.
Just installed OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta on my iMac and it seems the system font and menus are blurry and not as sharp as the previous Yosemite font. Any way to sharpen the font? Or do I need new glasses?
