I couldn’t resist the urge to upgrade to Yosemite, so I did. The download took forever, and the install maybe a half hour, but in the end, it was worth it.
My initial impressions are that a lot has changed. The new UI will take a little getting use to. It’s amazing how much it actually changed. Some of the buttons look a little to smushed together to me, but I’m sure it’ll just take a little getting use to.
As far as issues, I haven’t had any yet. However, when Yosemite finally does get installed, Spotlight takes time to update and the system in general is optimizing itself. So don’t expect it to work well until all that is done. Not sure what it’s all doing in the background, but it sure is working hard.
As far as apps go, Safari got a huge makeover. Kind of like it, kind of unsure. Calendar looks pretty. Reminders FINALLY looks good too. Can’t believe they didn’t update that for Mavericks. I like the notification center widgets, not as much of a fan of the split screen. I’d rather see notifications and widgets on one screen.
Overall, it’s a nice upgrade and I haven’t seen any real issues yet. Yes, performance is a bugger, but that’s because it’s still doing it’s optimizing thing. It warned me, but I have no idea how long that’ll take. Maybe I’ll just let it be up all night while I sleep.
So far so good. Can’t wait to actually use it more.
