Loren Stephens asked the folks at iMore if Mac OS X Yosemite is OK to install:
Last year you wrote an article suggesting to not upgrade from Mavericks to Yosemite. I took your advice. I haven’t seen a follow-up article. In your opinion do you feel that it is okay to upgrade or do you recommend still holding off? I know there were issues with Wi-Fi. Have those issues been solved?
My rule of thumb is simple. If your business depends upon your Mac working all the time, and it’s working now, you can wait a few weeks to see if there are any serious bugs. But every operating system, new version or otherwise, has bugs and one might be a show stopper for you, so why not test it first?
iMore’s Peter Cohen:
My advice to Mavericks users was the same as what I doled out to iOS 8 users and to iOS 7 users last year. Sometimes the perils of a major operating system upgrade aren’t worth the trouble unless you’re willing to accept the risk of being an early adopter.
Cohen admitted he doesn’t eat his own dog food since he’s been using OS X Yosemite since the early developer beta versions. I used a beta version on an older Mac and there were few notable issues (meaning, I don’t remember anything that didn’t work), and the full on upgrade did not have the Wi-Fi problems experienced by some. YMMV, of course.
