It’s probably time for Yosemite

OSX-update

The first update to Apple’s newest Mac operating system is available. I’ve installed it and all went smoothly. This should take care of the initial bugs, or most of them anyway, so if you’ve been waiting to try Yosemite, I think it’s time to move up from Mavericks.

If your new system seems sluggish for a while, the computer is indexing all of the files on your hard drive in the background. Once the indexing is complete and the new, improved Spotlight Search feature knows where all your stuff is, you speed should return (or even improve). The indexing can go on for many hours, depending on the size of your hard drive and how much stuff you have stored.

Here’s a link to slides telling about Yosemite features.

  1. People seem to be running it successfully with 4 GB, Brian. I have 6GB and it’s happy with that. If you have installed your upgrade kit, you should be good to go. Might want to do the initial OS download overnight, though. It took me quite a while to get it… although I was an early adopter and probably ran into a heavy demand period.
