The only thing I like, and that actually works, is how I can now read incoming emails while browsing in full screen mode. Pretty much everything else -- bug, bug, bug.

I like the fact that it's the only version of macOS that can read the picture and video files coming out of my iPhone. ie. High Sierra is pretty much a requirement for basic compatibility reasons.

I love the fact that it made me appreciate just how good an OS its predecessor is, something that was confirmed when I downgraded both my computers to 10.12.

I only use it on my media server so far. I love that volumes contained in APFS containers share the container space and how easy it is to add or remove those volumes at any time. Makes it easier to efficiently use the space on disk while remaining organized with individual volumes without having to decide the appropriate size of partitions ahead of time.

You're implying it's a worthless upgrade so if you're happy with what you have now by all means don't change anything.

This is kind of sad though. I've been using Mac for 10 years now (started with OS X Tiger) and I always upgraded on Day 1 every time that a new OS would come out. I even remember paying 70 pounds for a new version of OS X Leopard !

High Sierra is the first Mac OS that I haven't installed on my Mac a month after its release. What makes it even stranger is that I have a relatively new Mac (MacBook Pro TB 13'' 2016) but still I'm kind of afraid to upgrade.

I guess the fact that I'm perfectly happy with Sierra, along with the lack of new features makes me want to wait for the inevitable .1 or even .2 update which will hopefully squash the most serious bugs.

A few years ago, I approved the idea of updating the OS on a yearly basis but after High Sierra, I would like Apple to go back to a two or even three years cycle before updating their OS. I'll be more than happy to wait some time and get something exciting, new and most importantly faster and stabler rather than getting a glitchy OS which makes me want to stay on my existing OS.

outside of the calculator bug in the notification center (as minor a bug as there is), am pretty happy with HS. my main app (logic X) has never run better; everything is fast, stable. i am always most interested in what happens under the hood, and there, HS seems to shine. so, considering the LX performance, HS is an improvement over el cap and sierra...

How's the iMessage delay bug doing? I've held off upgrading my 2017 iMac simply because I cannot risk any downtime at the moment, but once I can afford that I'll upgrade so long as that isn't a widespread issue.

what is it? i use imessage on my macbook constantly, without issue.

EDIT: just looked at the 'imessage issue' thread. on my mac (i message only from the macbook, and my iphone SE), everything works as it should. messages come in both places. i do a lot of texting from the mac (and, of course, the SE when i'm out). so far, so good...

Everything runs well, yea I noticed the calculator bug too but as I have the calculator in my task bar no problem.

I am concerned that continuity in making calls on my iPhone does not work as well as it used to, outgoing calls fail quite often, and incoming calls have a long delay on my iMac compared to my iPhone or not at all.
