    Many people post here only when they have problems - that is what these forums are for - to help people ..... and I know there are many folks out there who have had problems with El Capitan 10.11.4 and 10.11.5 - and I am sorry for their grief .... but I have to say that after downloading the combo 10.11.5 update and installing it on my 27" Retina 5K, 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 2014 iMac, I have had no problems whatsoever. Photoshop CS5.1 works perfectly as does Dreamweaver CS6 and CS3 ( I refuse to buy into the monthly rental scheme from Adobe) and Safari has not frozen once and all my other apps are working as normal .....!
    So this post is a success story, and I hope it gives other people the courage to upgrade .....make sure you backup via Time Machine first of course ....!

    I also want to share that has been my experience too. I was very reluctant to upgrade hearing all the issues, so I waited and waited. Couple of days now and I have not had a problem so far. Lr, PS and On1 everything works. Lr is a little slow on start up but it was on Yosemite.

    The upgrade went fast and flawlessly on my mid 2011 iMac. About 10 minutes start to finish.

    Assuming you've been using Photoshop for years now, take a look at Affinity Photo in the App Store. I've read a lot of reviews from peeps who are unhappy with Adobe as well and are quite happy with Affinity. Granted it's still a new app, however a lot of peeps are switching from Photoshop to Affinity. Might be something worth checking out....

    I love the OS X version and its really beautiful looking, but.... I'm not happy with what they've done to disk utility.. Its a damn shame that you have to use terminal now to make a bootable disc of an operating system. I never like to just go a head like most users and install an operating system over another without doing a clean install. I've always made a bootable disc of the OS (since apple doesn't offer disc's anymore of their OS), formatted my HD and did a clean install so there is no problems.. The other thing about disc utility I don't like is how you can't 0 out a drive anymore of its data. I have an ssd internal and although El Capitan did a good job formatting it, I still like to do a 0 out of the information. I really hope that apple redoes disk utility..
