    Just jumped in from High Sierra. Left it alone after getting the installation to start, went to bed. (Although it promised to only take 10 minutes.) The download took roughly 60-90 minutes, going by the estimate. I didn't sit and watch it!

    I feel your pain Lisa. I'm in the mountains of western North Carolina. Beautiful country, but I barely have enough data throughput to stream Netflix. It took me 11 hours to update to Mojave and I get sticker shock every time I see my internet bill.

    Patrick - I live beyond the boonies! I live in God's country! I have ADSL with 1.7Mbps speeds. It told me it would take 3 hours (or more) to download. I brought my laptop to work and it took 4 minutes to download the update.

    I am waiting with my Mac Pro. I am not sure if I want an update. Every time I do bad things happen. Mojave has given me more headaches on my Mac Pro than any version of OS X ever - total - all together!

    The problems that Mojave has caused are nothing compared to what the next version of macOS is going to cause. Just imagine all the Mac users who have 32 bit apps and apps that are not sanctioned by Apple. They upgrade with no backup, and then learn their favorite apps are dead in the water. I can hardly wait to read the complaining threads....

    Yes, my only 32 bit app that I'm getting sweaty palms about is QuickTime 7 Pro. I use it all...the...time for splicing video, replacing audio, etc. and I just don't see anything else like it out there for simple edits like that. It's a crime that the current version of QuickTime can't do these basic things (only trimming...which isn't any good if you need to cut something out in the middle).

    I'm curious about your "apps that are not sanctioned by Apple" comment though. Are they seriously going to block apps from "unidentified developers" with no override option or something like that?

    Good grief, do I sense a wee bit of Masochism emerging in the future???

    But it sure bothers me when I read so many comments such as those of Lisa's above that seem to be too typical and the direction Apple seems to be heading and going lately. ie:
    Mojave has given me more headaches on my Mac Pro than any version of OS X ever - total - all together!
    And where's all the support for many peripherals (printers, scanners etc.) that sometimes never gets fixed, and maybe the hardware/software companies are tiring to keep up with all Apple's updates and changes.

    Question: what does Apple do to a basic OS that stops some still fairly recent printers or other peripheral devices from operation??? It's just some communication code that's needed to get any printing done!!! Gheese!!!

    PS: A bit absurd almost, but our old HP 4ML Mac (Serial connection only) and Apple-Talk Laserjet required, printer driver software is still provided and supported, even with a Mojave 10.14 Install. Bizarre!!!

    Especially considering that OS X 10.5.x was the last OS to contain and support Apple-Talk!!!

    Or does Apple have some secret that I haven't discovered to use the old HP printer with any of our current Macs or iOS devices???

    Apple already makes it difficult to use an app that hasn't been downloaded from the app store or from an identified developer. (Gatekeeper) Word is that they may reject any app that has not underwent Apple's blessing. Right now it's only rumor, but I wouldn't put it past Apple.

    +1 unfortunately.

    And I haven't been following the Apple rumor mills, but it certainly seems likely going by their recent "Keep the user safe and secure" policy that Tim Cook and others at Apple seem so keen about.

    Anyone else miss the days when Apple's Computers and their OS just worked well and were fun to use and even customize a bit, or even a lot, and was even encouraged — THINK DIFFERENT comes to mind eh??
