Did they have anything to fix Photos uploading at full bandwidth to iCloud at all times of day? Or Spotlight indexing, etc etc. Always seem to have something eating up kernel CPU.

Okay, against my better judgement I'm thinking of upgrading from El Capitan to High Sierra.

I have a SSD as my boot drive now so what do I need to do to make sure that doesn't go tits up?

Any major apps that no longer work? All this APFS voodoo is giving me the willies...

Should I just go to Sierra and play it safe?

What a journey.
I have been pleasantly surprised how smooth it's gone. I volunTOLD (HEHE) my wife to go first. :)
When she had no real issues, I jumped in with my other Macs.
My one issue, and not sure it's related, it stuff like disk app/utils. DROBO seemed wonky but has settled down in last month.
Other external drives with their own apps/utils need to catch up.
Always good to have an updated DiskWarrior license/app, imo.
But, all in all, it's been good.

I didn't really have any trouble with APFS/High Sierra. Of course, all I do on a Mac these days are my finances, email, and Messages.
