    Oh, really now.

    I am almost ready to go backwards. Safari 9 broke Cookie, my favorite cookie manager. Asking people not to track you is a joke, they do it anyway. Between restarts my dual monitor system can't remember chosen desktops, Disk Utility no longer has Repair Permissions capability, I can't relaunch into command-S mode, it just ignores me. There is probably some extension left over from whenever that is causing the issues but I can't find it... and I have a kernel panic a day for some unkind own reason.

    Solid as a Rock ain't the truth if you look here in the forums and see the 47 pages discussing working/non working apps, 52 pages of all the little things and 35 pages of El Cap Bugs. This is ridiculous!

    Apps breaking has nothing to do with stability. Also, those 35 pages of bugs were from the beta.

    El Capitan is way more stable than Yosemite. Yosemite gave me probably 10 crashes in my time using it. None so far with El Capitan and I've used it since the first beta.

    Changes in the architecture of El Capitan eliminated the usefulness of this.

    He could probably break rocks when he ups the pitch :p

    Varies, I have never seen or had a crash/kernel panic on any Mac with 10.10 Yosemite. For some 10.11 is bringing issues and even with Apple`s own software, far too many are discussing issues with Mail for one. Shorter development cycles, combined with adding ever more complexity are more likely to reduce stability than improve.

    As for 10.11 I will sit it out and let Apple work on it for a spell, especially as I have zero issues with 10.10.5

    I never had any issue with Yosemite either. However after running El Cap, much smoother. No probs with Mail, even tho it kept crashing in Yosemite Mind you that I am running El Cap on a clean install. I initially updated to the GM from Yosemite and had all kinds of probs. A clean install got rid of everything and it's smooth now.

    In general I don't think that I will incur signifiant issue moving to 10.11 as I prepare my systems prior to "pushing the button", equally mail is a critical App and I don't have any issues under 10.10.5. So far I have never needed to do a clean install I just do my "homework" prior to proceeding with the update and of course the mandatory backup of the drive, so I can roll back as needed.

    To track the extension that's causing the kernel panics you should boot on verbose mode (CMD+V) to see if there's something wrong. I have my fair share of problems with Office 2016 and Mail with El Capitan, but other than that it's pretty good.

    If it's that bad, backup your files and recover. El Cap is the best release since Snow Leopard, IMHO.
