    I'd like to get an updated feel on the various people having legitimate issues with High Sierra, now at .4 and a full NINE months in existence. And I got a few issues on Sierra too. Thinking of moving back up, but reluctantly so.

    I’m not a “power user” or someone who tweaks software but I have had no issues with High Sierra on my 2017 iMac. I use adobe products and stock applications.

    I have fewer issues overall on High Sierra (at this point; it was a rocky start with early versions) as I had some problems with 10.12.6 that I don't see any more.

    Running HS on an iMac and MBP, partner running HS on a MB. Not had any problems and can't really see much difference in the versions.

    I find the UI a lot smoother on HS, especially with a 4K display attached. Probably because WindowServer was rewritten in Metal

    Both Sierra and High Sierra worked great on my MacBook.

    OK, great! That's good news. I'll be moving back up to 10.13.5 when it comes out then.

    Sierra works fine for the most part, but outside my iMovie on High Sierra issue, High Sierra 10.13.3 had worked well enough. I thought moving back to 10.12.6 would be a significant improvement in stability, but it's also laggy.

    If the UI feels smoother on High Sierra, that's a huge selling point for me.

    How about Safari?? Is it faster and nice and snappy on 10.13.4?

    Finally, are you all using APFS? I thought maybe I'll try HS again but with HFS+ preserved as the file system and see how it goes. Anyone use HFS+ with High Sierra??

    Thanks very much!

    I installed HS on my 4/5,1 with SSD (APFS). Honestly, couldn't see any difference. Except that the latest FCPX requires 10.13, I can see now reason for HS over S. My late-2103 MBP with GT750M was another story. Absolutely awful for my set up (external Dell 2715Q. Made me regret the whole thing.

    I use HFS+ with High Sierra and it works fine.

    High Sierra bricked my 2017 iMac. Very thankful for time machine. Went back to Sierra and have no desire to try and update again.
