Okay, short and sweet, I’m a Mac Pro user, running OS X 10.6.8 “Snow Leopard.” And I’ve just learned that Apple’s offering a free update to OS X 10.9 “Mavericks.”
Awesome, right? Slightly opens up the range of software I can run. I’d probably need to upgrade it, eventually, anyway.
However, experience with how operating system upgrades have been going the last few years—Apple’s included—tells me I do have to ask: Has anyone else here had experience with this particular upgrade? Any common pitfalls or drawbacks I should expect? Any unpleasant surprises—did Apple pull out any features since 10.6 that I’d probably miss, or add anything stupid that I’d have to compensate for?
Any thoughts or input from those who’ve been there would be greatly appreciated—if I’m playing Russian Roulette with a major OS upgrade, I’d at least like to know how big the bullet is.
