Frustrated with El Capitan!--a warning



I admit it.  I was stupid.  I just kept getting emails that there was a new update to the OS for my Mac. I didn't have a problem the last time I updated so I figured what the hay!

Big mistake.  As you all know, I'm an artist, craft designer and more and I use photo editing programs a lot.  Unfortunately when I upgraded to El Capitan I can no longer save any edited photos.  Cmon now! I've had several Macs, quite a few iPads and an iPhone.  I guess you could say I love-d apple products for their reliability and functionality.  Now I'm rethinking it all.

When I had a PC (Way back when) they worked ok for a while and then they sometimes crashed.  They'd just stare at you and not do anything until you made the three finger salute of ctrl+alt+del. They were slower.  The virus protection was wonky.

Then I went to Mac and it was heaven.  They never, ever crashed.  They were faster and just a joy.  No more three fingers salutes.  All that changed when El Capitan sailed into my life.

Now everything is a mess and I'm wishing I was still saluting with the 3 fingers on a PC.
Everything works when I edit until I go to save my work.  Yes after all the work...you click save and everything freezes!!!!  Not just one editing program but all of them.

And the best part it that none of the support for the editors can say anything but to use Chrome (which I hate) or Firefox, until Apple gets on the ball and fixes the bug.  I mean it's no longer a beta version, but was released at the end of Septembers.  Seriously I don't have time for all of this.

I know, I shouldn't complain, I should have researched a bit better, but even if I did the reviews are all over the place. Some think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Other's like me are contemplating throwing the Mac against the wall and watching all it's little pieces hit the floor.

And don't even try to send a message to apple.  It's impossible.  They've gone underground or are in hiding.  I can't for the life of me find a way to at least send them all the crash reports I've experienced.

So now I wait, for whatever update they feel like tossing my way.

My fault.  I was naive.  I just want to warn you all of the pitfalls of El Capitan.  Don't update.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all
