    My iMac 3.5GHz i7 2013 with 256SSD took 10 hours to install Yosemite. On booting it it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Had to re-install OSX Mavericks through Carbon Cloner. What is going wrong, I was looking forward to the new OSX but now becoming disappointed with the Apple hype?
    Any thoughts on how I could resolve this or should I wait for 10.10.1?

    OSX Yosemite Installation - the easier way

    Following my initial problems, I did a clean install and then transferred my previous details. This was much faster and done in about 15 minutes. Used the same method to clone this back to the Mac Book Air.

    Installed it on an old Mac pro to test. Fresh install with a migration from a time machine backup. Everything seems to be working ok. A bit slow because the Mac pro doesn't have a SSD.

    Mixed feelings about the UI. I like some of the new icons and the colors used. I'm not wild about the transparency effects.
