    Wasn't the Apple File System supposed to only be available in the beta, for testing, and not really deployed until next year? It's not in this release already, is it?
    Correct, and it is not supported on fusion drives. Per Apple via Ars:

    http://arstechnica.com/apple/2016/09/macos-10-12-sierra-the-ars-technica-review/?comments=1&post=31918351
    Quick comment on APFS with Fusion Drive: Apple's APFS FAQ page says in its bullet list that APFS cannot be used with Fusion Drives, but then below it in text says "...Apple File System is optimized for Flash/SSD storage, but can also be used with traditional hard disk drives (HDD), Fusion Drives, and external, direct-attached storage." (Emphasis mine)

    We spoke directly to Apple about this and Apple confirmed that the bullet list is correct, and the text below it is in error. At this stage, APFS will not work on Fusion Drive volumes.

    It's there, manually search "macos sierra" in the Mac App Store. It's live.
    Yep. It appears in the category Utilities.

    "MacOS Sierra requires a 2009 iMac, 2009 MacBook, 2010 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, or Mac Pro."

    Just to clarify -- Sierra requires a Late 2009 iMac.

    As always, if you're concerned about incompatibility, hold off for a few days to see if any issues pop up. 
    Or install it on an external drive and test it out before upgrading your main drive.  macOS Sierra actually fixes a problem with Epson's scanning software for the V300 Photo scanner (version 3.55A), and any other scanner using that version.  There were no issues using it with Yosemite, but an annoying bug was introduced with El Capitan.  Clicking on Preview or Scan did nothing until you moved the mouse.  You had to do that with every scan, every page.  Testing it out with the final candidate version of macOS Sierra confirmed the problem has finally been fixed.  Also, the last version of iPhoto still works perfectly with macOS Sierra, for those that prefer not to use Photos for OS X.
    Ohhh, how I hope that fixes a somewhat related issue I've had with Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanner. The software has never been "perfect", but at some point along the way it would scan, but wouldn't finish saving the file until I moved the cursor. Very annoying! Epson just blew me off saying they'd never heard of this and suggested uninstalling and reinstalling the software (which didn't help) then erasing my hard drive and reinstalling OS X. I just chose to live with it until either Epson or Apple fixed it. Honestly, it shouldn't have gone on this long (over a year!).

    But you already have the real thing! (The Sierras)
    The Sierras is already installed millions years ago. This version is very stable. Never crashes once.

    I'm tired of reading articles saying Apple Pay is now live with the update...my iphone 6S on IOS 10 and Mac Sierra 2015 macbook pro still does not show apple pay on any of the listed merchants during checkout (from listed merchants on apple website)...if I could do a simple real world test, i wish they would put a caveat in these articles saying it is not yet live

    update: I've found 2 so far that have apple pay as an option on Safari...apple.com and lululemon.com......checked most so far that are listed as accepting it and they are not

    Cue the random complaints in tech blogs about various downloading/installing/operating problems on Day 1....

    It sure would be nice if there were new Macs to go along with it...

    Anyone who has installed it, what's the build number, please? (About This Mac > click on the version number, 10.12.)

    I installed it from my developer account redemption code, and that was build 16A323.

    I've been running the Sierra public betas for months. Today when I tried to install the final version, after it downloaded, I got a window with a large exclamation point and the message "if you wish to upgrade to macOS Sierra, please contact your IT support person". WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? More importantly, what can I do about it? I don't have an "IT support person".

    Me too but as the new public version is now available to us developers I am installing it on top of the last developer version.  That's what I always do.

    Late 2009 iMac, not early or middle. Mine just misses the cut, so El Capitan forever, etc.
