    During the Apple Special Event, Craig "peeks" at an email stating El Capitan's release date is Sept 30th. Maybe we will get a confirmation before the end of the event.

    Yes, I saw that as well, wondering how many other people saw this

    Seems Apple is making the same mistake Microsoft did by releasing on a certain date instead of when the OS is actually ready for public release. Maybe Apple will have better luck in the next 21 days to get rid of as many bugs as possible.

    It's nowhere near ready if you go by all the bug posts still being made here.

    which is why there will be 10.11.1, 10.11.2, etc. there are always bugs. if developers waited to reach perfection, we'd have no software to run, and no OSes to (not) run them on. :cool:

    Very much agree, Apple are clearly still basing the release date on marketing not technical feedback which is a little disappointing as 10.11 is all about getting OS X right, not another half-baked release, that takes 6-9 months to become stable.

    Personally I am holding off 10.11 until it`s fully stable. Right now with 10.10.5 none of our Mac`s have issue so there is little incentive to move primary systems to an unproven OS.

    Q-6

    Your post does not have any base whatsoever. DP8 is as stable as OS X has ever been. And there are always bugs.

    DP8 may be stable for you and many others, but that does not mean there are not still some serious bugs and deficiencies. Just ask the many users having issues with Exchange still and Disk Utility that is still a joke compared to its former self. Hopefully with the GM Candidate release many 3rd party apps will begin to see updates because there are many that still are crippled under El Capitan. I'm not saying Apple won't get the job done, I'm just hoping it doesn't blow up in their face.

    Yeah, yeah...I saw that other reply. Still some major bugs for an initial release.

    all relative. i am (so far, and with java just now reinstalled for dreamweaver cs6), amazed that everything is working; my apps seem ok (of course, it's only day 2...) ;)

    Hopefully we are at the point where things only get better over time from here on out.

    Don't you like how they didn't even mention El Cap on Tuesday? Could have even been, "Oh, one more thing, El Capitan will be available for download on Sept. 30th. And now, to perform for you live, is One Republic." Sheesh

    Btw.: Do you guys think it was a mistake that Craig showed this email or was it on purpose? I can't believe it was a mistake but the email seemed to be real including the "internal information only".

    I don't think it was a mistake. It also shows the release date of September 30th on Apple.com on the OS X El Capitan page.

    Point was, it would have been nice if they had let the general public know when we might expect El Cap to be available; I seem to recall they have announced the availability of the next iteration of OS X at the Fall event. You know, maybe instead of that Frogger demo, or whatever they called it.

    There is absolutely no chance it was a mistake. Apple's keynotes are very heavily scripted and rehearsed.

    I'm sure they make sure to edit what is at the top of the inbox so nothing that they don't want to be public is public. I'd guess most if not all of the emails in there are ones that were sent just to have something that isn't important up on screen for the keynote.

    This is an odd release date as new iOS 9 users (released on the 16th) won't have any sync compatibility with notes that needs to be upgraded on el capitan which is released 2 weeks after!

    I would of thought iOS and OS X would be released at the same time so everything is very seamless/Apple, full user experience, etc etc

    absolutely 100% agree with you, the notes sync is a potential problem for apple if ios9 and El Cap are released separately.

    Unless they were to offer an Yosemite notes update.?
