    I mean, it's terrible. Apps hanged all the time, the App store didn't work, and it was slow as hell. Luckily enough Internet Recovery exists and I could roll back to Yosemite, then upgrade to El Capitan. I don't think I will upgrade any further.

    ...or you could have come to this forum, and asked for help, since most of us are doing fine in mojave (or, art least, not having thoses issues). at least you're free of the mojave forum!

    EDIT: why isn't the imac in your signature? (just curious)..

    It's the iMac from work.

    This thing uses a mechanical hard drive and things were very slow, and I think that's the reason (the OS may not be optimised for that). Rolling back to El Capitan, things are normal again.

    My 2014 Mac mini just got august 30th has a mechanical hard rive. Mojave is just fine. No slowdown. Perhaps a clean install of the Mojave might help.

    and i don't mean to be, uh, difficult. just, so many people update, have issues, and instead of trying to resolve them , run screaming back to an older OS. but honestly, whatever works; we just need our macs to do what we need them to do.

    I also use it for work, and it was painfully slow. I waited couple days for nvidia drivers before trying those kexts, but I'm really glad I did. It's incredibly snappy now.
