Are there any Mac OS to stay away from?

I'm currently using Monterery and was considering updating...any input would be appreciated before I pull the trigger.

My audio production computer always stays one OS version behind the current one. If you do other things on it then it gets more complicated I guess.

I tend to stay on the oldest OS version that's supported, but I also have been known to follow the above statement about staying one OS behind the curve. Tends to be much more stable.

I currently run Ventura.

I'm not a power user by any means, but Luna/Sonoma are doing quite nicely here. See specs below.

I think it kind of comes down to what you're doing -- e.g., big session planned on Sunday, don't update your Mac on Friday. READ UP on problems folks are having with Sonoma 14.4 and wait for 14.4.1 or 14.4.2 right now, for instance. Check all your "must use" apps are up to date and actually work with Sonoma (e.g., Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol last week did not work with Sonoma, I think I mentioned). Check "does it work" guides, like the one Sweetwater tries to keep updated with each new version: https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/macos-sonoma-compatibility-guide/

I still have a 2013 Macbook Pro 15-inch running Sierra so my AutoSampler software will run :)

That's a good point about waiting for the next update Neo.

I'm on sonoma 14.2.1 and it's been ok for me so far.

I've been a bit too busy to really dig into things like I usually do though so that's not to say something ain't broke somewhere and I just haven't noticed yet. But as far as I can tell, it's been ok.
