“The other day I read an article from someone who was basically warning us off OS X El Capitan,” Gene Steinberg writes for The Tech Night Owl. “While he hadn’t actually installed the new OS, he cited threads on Apple’s discussions forums describing a litany of problems that included incompatible apps and the inability to access external drives.”
“I did check the Apple discussions and found lots of problems, precisely as the blogger stated. But not all of them had large numbers of participants reporting similar problems,” Steinberg writes. “Unless a problem is fairly consistent, it may be the result of a system oddity with a few installations. It takes more than that to take it seriously, but the article makes no attempt to weigh the importance of those complaints.”
“My personal experience with El Capitan at this early stage is mostly solid. Mail has a tendency to briefly stall, but will resume normal operation in less than 30 seconds. Maybe it’s about background processing of large message folders, but I’m shooting from the hip,” Steinberg writes. “El Capitan strikes me as a pretty solid release.”
