Catalina: safe to upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Just curious what people think based on their experience.  I don't have any 32-bit apps that I'm concerned about - are other issues still remaining?  It sounds like I will just be barraged with security questions but are there other considerations to be wary of?

TBH, the security questions aren't any worse than earlier versions if you add apps like Alfred to the "Developer Tools" section (if you have one).

 

But there are still loads of bugs, many of which Apple actually considers features. Get a load of this.

 

I wouldn't go near it if I were you. The only reason I have it is because I had no choice (it was pre-installed on my new Mac).

Perhaps you can try a clean install of Mojave. In Catalina you should be able to softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 10.14.6 to grab the current Mojave (source is 512pixels.net).

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to start from scratch with a clean install, and I don't have any confidence that a Catalina backup will migrate smoothly onto an older OS.
