Thinking of upgrading your Mac os?

By Barbara Mellert, Academic Technology Consultant

Apple released their next operating system, Mac o/s 10.11 which is called El Capitan, on Wednesday, September 30.  It is available via download from the App store.  New Macintosh computers sold after September 30th also have El Capitan installed.

El Capitan requires a lot of assessment before attempting the climb.

We recommend that you wait until we have had time to test applications to be sure everything works before downloading.  In the past, we've encountered issues with SPSS and also the VPN.  Other applications that may be problematic include Parallels, EndNote, Matlab, some of the Adobe products, etc.  

If you have questions, please contact your Academic Technology Consultant (ATC) or your division's computing support office.  Contact information for your Arts & Sciences ATC can be found at: http://bit.ly/DartmouthATC
