OS X El Capitan review: a modest update, with some welcome changes

When I first previewed OS X El Capitan, Apple’s latest Mac operating system, the software wasn’t quite finished, and it also wasn’t available to anybody without a developer account (that’s most people). Since then, though, Apple has released El Capitan in apublic beta program, so that anyone with the guts to install non-final software could try it out. Tomorrow, the OS will be available to the general public, and the version that ships will be virtually identical to the Gold Master build that early adopters are already using. That means for some of you, then, exactly nothing I’ve written in the following review will come as a surprise. But for folks who are perhaps more skittish about downloading a work in progress to use as their daily driver, I’ve endeavored to revisit El Capitan, taking care to clarify what’s been added since my initial preview. Suffice to say, my thoughts remains the same: While this is clearly not as big a release as last year’s update, all of the changes here are welcome, and a few were even overdue.
