I'm on Yosemite at the moment I want to upgrade but I fear it will break my applications. I have a MacBook Pro (Late 2011) 15''. The last time I updated my Logic Pro 8 broke and I was forced to pay $200 for Logic Pro X (it is my theory that Apple did that on purpose) but either way, what is your suggestion on the Operating System nonsense?

    My suggestion would be that you look at the versions of software you have and then check with their manufacture if there are compatibility issues with OS X 10.11 and upgrade accordingly. Feb 6, 2016 at 0:37
  • I think that people are way too cautious over updating. My Mid-2009 MacBook Pro runs just as well, if not better on El Capitan than on Yosemite. In fact, that's really what El Capitan is all about: performance, not new just new features. That said, I'm not sure about compatibility on every app that you have, but you can probably find that info on the developer's website. Feb 6, 2016 at 0:38
  • Too cautious? OP said he lost a $200 piece of software. Seems right to ask his question. Feb 6, 2016 at 2:18

I haven’t heard of any apps that work in 10.10 and don’t work in 10.11. Certainly not mainstream apps. Roaringapps.com shows no applications with a “doesn’t work” for 10.11
