    Decided to upgrade my iMac (27 late 2013, 32 gig ram, 1 tb HDD, and three external USB disks 2 gig, 2gig, and 1.5 gig, all connected to two additional samsung monitors and a Fax, Scanner and copier and printer the HP office 6100), computer to El Capitan?

    Afterwards, I started having problems with my USB Bose Companion 5 speakers, they suddenly lost the sound, and I had to restart the iMac 3-4 times a day. Then, when I opened mail, the memory allocated to it went from 7 gigs, to 25 gigs and all of my 32 gigs went into the mail app and the computer just froze from the slowness due to the kernel and the mail programs eating up all of my memory.
    Tried various fixes that i found on the web, nothing worked for the usb sound problem, and then also the mail recommendations none of them worked. The machine would reboot to a practical stand still, so y decided to go back to Yosemite, hoping that one day El Capiturd will grow up to El Capitan.

    I personally don't see El Capitan as faster. Still riddled with bugs and problems, a total first for Me. Very worried and disappointed.

    I'm back to Yosemite, hoping El Capitan will be refreshed and bettered soon. All my hardware USB driven and my Mail application working without any glitches.

    Am I glad i had my time machine backup. After going back to yosemite, and tried to use the photo application, it would not open the database because it said it was from another photo version, so i had to reinstall the photo database that worked with yosemite before the upgrade to el capitan. Funny thing though it works well El capitan with my macbook pro retina mid 2012. Is El capitan only for laptops?

    The total mess it made of my iMac, giving me problems with my usb Bose 5 external speakers, and then mail jacking up all my 32 gig of memory until the machine went so slow it was impossible o use. I also have a rMBP and El capitan is running smoothly in it. That's why.
