Apple recently released the newest version of their desktop/laptop operating system: Mac OSX 10.10, nicknamed Yosemite. It’s even a free downloadable upgrade!
Usually Stanford recommends, for security reasons, that computer users upgrade to the newest system; but should you upgrade to Yosemite yet? Stanford ITS has hopefully answered that question for you. They’ve made a list of security and productivity software that is important to Stanford users, and they’ve outlined whether or not that software is compatible with Yosemite.
So, before you upgrade, check out the ITS page on Yosemite (which they plan to update frequently).
