Should you Upgrade to El Capitan? Consider This.
I upgraded to El Capitan and it landed me in the repair shop.
Here’s the deal. Software often outpaces hardware. If you use your electronics until the bolts pop off, like I do, consider the age of your computer before upgrading the operating system.
Apparently my three year old desktop is “too old” for El Capitan OS X. Within two days, it was a dead dog. I couldn’t even restore from backup.
Apple *wants* you to run to their nearest store in distress, where you will be relieved of a few thousand dollars. The company doesn’t have more cash than the US government for mysterious reasons.
My machine is now happily rolled back to Yosemite, where it will stay until the bolts pop off.
