Since the downgrade (IMO) of iTunes 11 over version 10, I am no longer updating anything from Apple for a period of at least 3 months to see what happens. Years ago, I used to wait for the patches to appear, and after a couple, and things began to settle out, I’d upgrade. Well I got brave since 10.7 and started doing updates right away. I learned the lesson again….never be the guinea pig. I’ve never been hurt by waiting. I’ve been drilled a couple of times lately by jumping in early.


Mr. Goodwin - So what you’re saying is, you’d rather NOT be part of the solution? You’d rather wait and let others find the bugs and gotcha’s?

You must use your Macs for business?

OK, I do too, and my main business machine does not get updated right away… but my home laptop? As soon as it hits the servers baby! I just gotta know NOW!

Oh, and I back up… a lot.

You’re welcome smile (Although I’ve never discovered a bug, I keep trying!)
