    Okay...i got 10.11.2. As of late, I haven't been too fond of Apple's OSX updates. This time I decided to hold off 10.11.3 due to the fact that people on this forum had been struggling with bugs. But truly, is it that bad to update it? I'm hesitating....and would like to know Thanks.

    It's just a normal update. Do it. You have nothing to worry about.

    How do you explain the bugs from other threads?

    I'm assuming you already upgraded?

    Yes I have upgraded two Macs. I've had no problems personally. One Mac is a 2008 iMac, and the main Mac is a 2013 11" MacBook Air connected to a 27" Thunderbolt display, with an external Thunderbolt Drobo 5S, and two eSATA hard drives connected to the Thunderbolt bus through a bridge.

    Well..I've got an early 2008 Mac Pro and a late 2008 MacbookPro.....I've had no dramatic problems with updates to this system including to 10.11.3 ---I have to assume that most folks...considering the numbers of Macs doing the update....pretty much have had a reasonably good experience. There are always a few adjustments, some times lots of them, in operating system upgrades......mostly it will be the folks with problems who bother to check in at forum such as this.

    No blamb to the complainers....It's no minor matter when a computer stops working smoothly, or worse, at all.
    Computers are as particularly individual as the folks who use them...especially the longer they are used...

    No guarantees...but the odds are obviously on your side to have a successful update....also, the odds are that you will have adjustments to make....

    I had 3 majorly expensive Windows machines burn out between 1999 and 2008 before I switched to Mac.

    Carry on......

    cheers

    I appreciate your feedback. I have to say you are right because those problems may be in minority. I hate the feeling of "50/50" chance of working.

    It's not just people complaining to complain. I have never had a problem with any of the updates until 10.11.3. It broke Safari. Already open tabs work, but I can't open a new tab or get to any other website. I'd hold off on the update until it's clear that Apple fixed the bugs.

    This is something going on with Apple's servers, not inherent with the OS X update, and will likely be fixed soon: http://www.macrumors.com/2016/01/27/safari-crashing-how-to-fix/

    People who don't do clean install when moving from one major release to the next being a big problem with the other is installing dodgy third party crap that interferes with low level parts of the operating system. General rule of thumb, do a combo update when updating - I tend to avoid delta updates as I've found them problematic when compared to combo updates.
