    Will it mix your music for you? Maybe its because I've spent too much of my life on the Bleeding edge, but I'd rather work with an OS that has been proven to be solid!
    Then again if it weren't for you Bleeding edgers out there, the OS's would never become solid, so.......
    Carry On!
    Yeah I don't get it either. Unless it's fixing some serious issues you've been having or for software compatibility. If you are curious about the thing you can just install it on a different partition and you don't need to worry about breaking anything.

    OK, if that is the case, then why don't they put the name in "about this mac"? I'm on 10.9.5 and I have no idea what "name" that is unless I do a search. And then to know what order the OS is in, you'd have to look it up. Where as I know for sure 10.7 is before 10.8. A name just convolutes things IMO. And apple has been convoluting things a lot lately.

    YES it was like the song, Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end!
    It really did seem to be quite a long time that Snow Leopard was relevant Right?

    Yeah like they could call the next OS "John" or how about "Mary"?

    I've had no issues with El Capitan at all.

    Yosemite, on the other hand.... just whoa.

    I don't really mind that they took away part of the Disk Utility app, as there are better (and free) programs that do maintenance like Repair Permissions etc. (Onyx is a great app).

    I'm quite happy with El Capitan. Probably won't do an update until late Spring next year, if everything in the new OS is up and running by then.

    I don't so much mind the names, nor the numbers. I get why they have both (I remember when we just had numbers). What is slightly baffling to me is that all of the information doesn't simply just appear when you click about this mac. Why not just tell me the number, and the name. It's just silly!

    Amen.

    FWIW I'm pretty stable on Yosemite on iMac and MacBook.
