New OSes: Windows 10, Mac OSX 10.11 (El Capitan), & iOS 9

Just a quick post about Windows 10, Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), and iOS 9.

Windows 10
  • We feel very good about this OS, but have not finished our worksheet on how to configure it yet.
  • If you're an MBS client, we recommend holding off upgrading until we complete our worksheet and can thus certify it, which we hope will be by the end of this month.
Mac OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)
  • It’s all about the apps; not about the OS (see my article on this topic).
  • So far we’re seeing more spinning color wheels (though the color wheel is much prettier!), some crashes, and a problem running Office 2011 in El Capitan.
  • The only current fix we’ve found for Office so far is to upgrade to Office 2016.
  • At this time we are NOT recommending this free upgrade.
iOS 9.x looks good to go!

I hope that helps!

Update on Windows 10-- sometimes life gets so busy you can't get everything done! We've continued to work on this OS configuration, but still have a little further to go. Hopefully we'll get to wrap it up and begin recommending its implementation by the holidays!
