Re: Mac Sierra Users: Don't Upgrade to High-Sierra - yet

No, apparently he actually does it every few months. I know, because I happen to make maps that require the installation of some open source software, and he uses them. So invariably he contacts me because he canít remember how to install the software. So evidently he is doing a clean install, then installing his applications and copying his user files back. Heís very set in his ways about this, and I have given up asking why. ;-)

Like I said, I have been using Macs since 1985. I managed an office full of them in the 90ís. Have 3 Macs that I use everyday at home. But Iíve never needed to do clean installs of the operating system to fix a problem. Perhaps it has to do with the software I use, or maybe itís because I donít visit ďcertainĒ websites? :-P

But seriously, I am very slow to upgrade to a new version of MacOS. I stayed on 10.8.5 for many years until I finally decided to switch to Final Cut Pro X from legacy FCP.
