My subject line is kind of humorous, but I really would like some feedback from people who upgraded to High Sierra last year.
My main Mac is a 2011 27-inch iMac. It is still running 10.11 El Capitan. It continues to be a great machine and I still see myself happy with it for several more years.
Unfortunately, it missed the cut-off to be eligible to run 10.14 Mojave. So, I’m faced with only being able to upgrade to 10.13 High Sierra (or maybe just 10.12 Sierra).
But, I’ve heard such bad things about High Sierra. My sense is that it was a very disappointing release and caused a lot of trouble even as Apple worked on it throughout its lifecycle. I’m nervous about updating to High Sierra and turning my iMac from a solid performer into a broken mess from which I can never do anything to change.
So, I’m interested to know if High Sierra was a terrible OS for people. Did it break as much, or more, than it fixed from prior macOS releases? Do people wish they just stayed on Sierra (at least until Mojave came out)? Are there any issues Apple never addressed (or never fixed until Mojave)?
I look forward to hearing people’s experiences.
