i've been a mac user since the beginning
and, until recently, i've upgraded my systems to current as they came
out

but i've grown conservative (systemically anyway) in my old age

still running 10.10.5

i didn't see anything really compelling in 10.11 to jeopardize my
stable system

so now i'm looking at macos sierra

i'm open to any opinions as to whether or not to upgrade

10.10.5 does everything i want and is (almost) completely stable

please share your thoughts

That's called stuck in the past. Don't die before you die. Live to the
last nanosecond.

That's because you didn't install it!

You mean considering Sierra.

I think you need a transfusion of some new blood. Start by upgrading to
Sierra when it comes out. Millions will, millions will be pleased, as
always. You are aware, are you not, that learning new things keeps the
mind nimble as one ages? This from a 72-year-old college boy/nature
photographer learning new techniques/retired professional linguist
learning a new language蟻nd soon-to-be owner of a Phantom 4 UAV just
for fun.

BTW CSMS is no place to learn what the majority of Mac users are doing
and thinking. More like the .1%.

Sierra will not be out until Late September.

However, there is absolutely no reason no to update to 10.11. If you are
really paranoid, make a Carbon Copy Clone of your drive and then update.
If you have problems, you can easily restore.
