More on High Sierra

Ray an I exchanged a couple of comments on High Sierra here:
There is a hitch--isn't there always a hitch?--which is that High Sierra begins the shift away from 32 bit applications: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.
