    Yeah, Patrick, not sure why Apple is kind of hiding it.

    Also, after my post above about successfully downloading Catalina, I use Google Chrome. So, I just tried it with V12.1.2 of Safari, and again it worked. Again, just seems baffling why some folks are being told they need the latest version of Safari to download it. Obviously (at least for me), that is not the case at all.

    Understand. For me, the primary peripheral this could affect is my Canon Printer. For High Sierra and Mojave, Apple already had the drivers for it (and many other printers) within the OS. Wonder how soon we can see what is the situation for Catalina.

    I've been running various incarnations of the Catalina Public Beta since it was released. With one exception (Beta 2) I haven't had issues with my Brother all-in-one. It worked under Mojave and has worked under Catalina. I'm not really using their extra software. I tend to rely on the equivalent macOS app.

    That's encouraging, Slydude. I am anticipating no issues with my Canon Printer.

    Actually, the primary way to obtain macOS updates and security updates is through System Preferences, Updates and not the Mac App Store.

    Well I bit the bullet and pressed GO!

    Probably the smoothest/fastest update I've ever had and everything seems to work ok including my Canon Printer, Microsoft apps and Adobe Photoshop!

    The only thing I'm not 100% sure of is how CCC is going to deal with my daily back up now that there are two Macintosh HDs - HD & HD Data.

    I have put the Relocated Items folder to one side and I'll worry about it for a few days!!

    Did the upgrade last night and everything is fine so far. At work I have a WavLink USB dock to power my external monitors that needed a bit of restart to work, but that seems to be working again.

    Thanks for those links I'm now 100% sure how CCC will/should deal with my Daily Backups! They certainly seem to have been well ahead of the game.

    It's good to see Apple becoming anglicised and renaming the TRASH as BIN

    Yes indeed. They started this with iOS 13 for iDevices.

    I dove right in with my MacBook Air last night. I was actually surprised to see it was supported (mid-2012 model) because I could have sworn it was previously reported to not be on the compatibility list. I had already weeded out all 32-bit apps on it anyway, so it has largely been a smooth transition. One of my bigger concerns was going to be programming my Logitech Harmony remotes since their software was definitely not going to be compatible, but they released a new overhauled app literally just in time.

    I did run into a couple unexpected hiccups with screensavers. I had one that macOS refused to use because the developer couldn't be identified and only offered to delete it. What I had to do was go to the Screen Savers folder in my Library; right-click on the screen saver file; and select "Open" (same process as regular apps from unidentified developers). Obviously only do this if you trust the developer. One other screensaver that is jacked up is Dream Aquarium. The developer posted a beta update for Catalina support, but I can't change any options in the saver because Catalina disallows keyboard input for screensavers. Hopefully he can figure out a workaround.

    I'm going to upgrade my wife's Mac mini this weekend, which should go equally smoothly. I'm going to sit on upgrading the iMac at this time thanks to a handful of 32-bit games on there (even though I'm not actually playing them) as well as some apps running under Wineskin that will be dead in the water. I think eventually I'm just going to set it up for dual-booting Mojave and Catalina as well as running Mojave in a VM. To be more practical though, I may as well just get and use the Windows-versions of the 32-bit games and apps that I can't or don't want to run in a VM since I already have Windows set up as Boot Camp.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I've noticed some of our TV news people have picked up some bad grammar and pronunciation from their counterparts across the pond.

    @LB Thanks for the info about the Logitech software for programming their remotes. It was one of only three or four 32-bit apps I still use.

    Edit: Which remote are you using? All of the info I find for my remote seems to suggest that the Catalna update won't happen until some time in November at the earliest.

    I’m using the Harmony 650. There is some confusion on their site on the matter. The app that is available now replaces the MyHarmony app that required Microsoft Silverlight to work (good riddance to that!) and the download link only gives you the new version if you are on Catalina. Otherwise you get the old version. What’s coming in November is a replacement for the older 7.x software that supports much older remotes.

    The new app that I’m using looks a whole lot different, but appears to be fully functional. I don’t know why it’s not supported on older macOS versions. Heck, maybe it does work. I’ll copy it off my MBA and try it out on my iMac running Mojave when i get a chance tomorrow.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I've got a Harmony 950, Harmony Hub, and one of the other hub-based remotes. Until they release an update for the software, which is garbage IMHO, I'm stuck with the following options:

    1. Use the IOS-based software to make changes
    2. Use the Windows version of the software
    3. Continue to run the software under Mojave

    I'm not especially impressed with their support or software but I like their remotes. My only argument with the 950 is that the IR emitter in that remote isn't especially good. Unless it is pointed almost directly at my receiver the receiver does not change inputs reliably.
