Yeah, me too.
For all the excitement around the iPhone and the Watch and the shiny new stuff, the Mac is still by far my favorite Apple product. If I was forced, I could cope with an Android phone, I can watch Netflix and stuff like that through the PS4, and I prefer my mechanical watch over the Apple Watch, but I could never switch back to Windows.
Mac OS upgrades always have some genuinely unexpected updates that make things just that little bit easier for you, and they always far outweigh the occasional problems I've found with them. Mac OS upgrade day is always an exciting day at my desk!
Interesting. You'd kind of expect AI would feature an article about the imminent release of OS 10.11.
But instead they publish an article about "Apple Hype".
There’s a bug for me in bless that keeps BootChamp from working, which means that I have to perpetually run a GTX 980+GT 120 setup and switch between the cards if I want to use Windows.
But I’m a “nonstandard install”, so I doubt Apple will ever fix or change it.
Well I'm still on Mavericks so I'll likely wait a little while longer and see what is stuffed this time. Once upon a time, most Apple OS releases just worked.
They still do just work.
El and Capitan are not English words.
I don't know of any time that I didn't have to be wary of applications breaking or possible bugs happening once the OS started being used by millions outside the development lab.
Probably not a good idea to install right away on a mission critical machine.Here is a message we received from Quark, not that we use it very often:
I'm wondering about SIP in El Capitan; at least one of the 3rd party apps I use multiple times daily doesn't work with it enabled. I know how to disable it; but wondering if I should.
I tried installing the GM last weekend, only to have my late-2013 iMac essentially rendered catatonic by a kernel panic (or combination thereof) that I lacked the patience to track down. As eager as I am for some of the new El Capitan features, I may have to wait for the 10.11.1 release before I feel safe that I won't have to restore back to 10.10.5. Again.

Apple should bring back color labels and scroll arrows.
No it didn't. The Public Beta was behind the Developer beta so how could it be taking away from "real" betas?
Awfully rich getting spelling complaints from an American who can't even spell colour :-)
If Quark was supported in Yosemite then it should work fine in El Capitan. Just because they say it's not supported it doesn't mean it won't run it means they're still testing it out and won't support any bug requests until they rubber stamp it.
Of course it is Quark so considering their development times you might get support by the time OS X 10.12 is released
Not natively it doesn’t. Do you happen to have HyperDock installed?
i realized this as well, so installed el cap on the other devices and it's all syncing. if find it to be stable.
Notes on iOS 9 shows up as offering an in-app upgrade, so it is not automatically updated in order to maintain sync with Yosemite. Apple has an alert about requiring El Capitan for sync IF you upgrade Notes. This pops up when you first launch it after the iOS 9 update. So you can upgrade to iOS 9 now and install El Capitan when you are ready to do so.
I actually read the alert and decided to wait on upgrading Notes until I install El Capitan (maybe I'll wait until next week to do the El Cap update).
I use Notes all the time, taking advantage of the sync across all devices. I experimented a little with MS OneNote, which isn't bad (and very cross-platform) but it just seemed a bit too complex and "busy" for simple note taking. Looking forward to the few new extra features in Notes--hoping "creeping featureism" does not set in. Keep it simple!

For those people here who have been installing the betas, are you satisfied that the lingering bugs have been squashed?

Can't wait. Been holding off on upgrading my iPhone & iPad to iOS 9 because Notes doesn't sync with Yosemite.
Apparently, it requires El Capitan.
So far only a few minor issues with a few apps not working too well but overall quite ok.
Now just awaiting being able to download it just for kicks.
Hopefully in the next few days new iphone 6S plus and iPad Air 2 and then the real fun will begin
