Call me cauious...is OSx 10.11.6 safe to go to?

Postby artfarm1 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 7:48 am

Call me cautious....my system is running fine with El Capitan 10.11.4.

Any good reason to go, or not to go, to 10.11.6? (...I'm definitely not going to Sierra yet as I don't even care about using Siri on my iPhone or iPad, and I have yet to read any true success stories amongst music/audio people....and I don't use Finale either.)

All good with El Capitan 10.11.6 for use with DP 9x?
