More on High Sierra

Post by Stephen Hart » Wed Jun 07, 2017 2:57 pm

Ray an I exchanged a couple of comments on High Sierra here:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2323#p8314
According to Apple, any Mac that runs Sierra will run High Sierra. We can further hope that any app that runs in Sierra will run in High Sierra, needing only minor tweaks, if any. Apple's on a yearly upgrade path now, and that means less chance of major upsets.

Everything Ray says is true. I'd only add that every user should really have a tested, complete backup before upgrading to a new OS version.
There is a hitch--isn't there always a hitch?--which is that High Sierra begins the shift away from 32 bit applications:
Apple has officially announced that in January 2018, all new apps submitted to the Mac App Store are required to be 64-bit. The noose tightens a bit in the summer of 2018, with all app updates needing to comply with the mandate.

According to Tidbits, Microsoft Office 2011 will not run on High Sierra. Or at least it is not tested or certified to run.We'll see...

While I haven't heard anything, I'm concerned Quicken 2007 won't run either.

Word for Mac 2011 seems to run fine for me under High Sierra Beta 8.
