    Now that I have done the upgrade, from El Capitan, I sort of wish I had not done it. Lots of problems with what should have been a straightforward, gee whiz update on my 2015 MBP. First thing that happened was it lost my keychain in the upgrade so nothing worked for my internet accounts. The part about pop up videos not running unless you want them too on webpages - wrong, they run just fine. Boot ip time is significantly longer than El Capitan and same with shutting down. There are still things I can t find but know they are there somewhere. It seems to me that Apple did not do a real good job on this upgrade and I'm hoping since I'm in it now, that future updates will solve problems. Seems that Apple is not doing as well as they used to on software.

    .0 releases have always been buggy, even in the "good old days." Even the fabled Snow Leopard had a data loss bug. Considering Apple rewrote the windowserver and added a new filesystem, it could've been worse. Hopefully the .1 release in the next week or so will fix most issues.

    Those of us who wait for .1 or .2 don't have horror stories.

    Agreed. Personally I upgraded all three of my computers (2017 iMac, 2015 13inch macbook pro, 2012 15inch macbook pro) and have slow booting issues on all three. Happily, my stable version of Premiere 2015.3 that I've been holding onto works just fine, along with other key software, so it hasn't been a show stopper for me, but reading all the other issues being reported, this may be one of the more troubled mac os releases ever.

    Like you said though, since they overhauled the file system, bugs and problems shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

    I look forward to a rock solid 10.13.5 or 10.13.6 sometime next year. Until then, it may be a bumpy ride at times.

    Perhaps in the case of High Sierra it will take even longer.

    And (in the converse), there are those of us who use .0 that have no horror stories to share :)

    I have stories filled with terror for all the stages and installs I've managed to work-through since even-before ElCap (stories for-another-day (stories others need not be hashed by-virtue of the lack of value in such boredom in performing the same, unsuccessful acts (over, and over, and over (and over; yet again)))).

    Backups (in all their many forms) help make all these efforts so-very less complicated, making time travel {virtually} almost possible ;)
