    No, but I’m seeing shed loads of problems on Twitter.

      Yep, been running for nigh on 6 months. Major problem has been with Arduino IDE and VirtualBox - there's a work around for VirtualBox, start the VMs in "detached mode" this prevents the VM from terminating when switching/scrolling in or out of the VM.

          Upgraded yesterday - did seem to stall for quite a while but it did eventually install.

          Not that I can see much of a difference but I do not really use it for anything other surfing the web or reading stuff on the kindle app.

          It could be because Catalina is nuts also..

            I've seen quite a few groups advocating against upgrading, since it kills their niche interest legacy applications. I own paid applications that fall into this category - there may be newer versions but I have to buy them afresh. I'm sure many companies are probably cashing in on this - blame Apple and get everyone to pay for upgrades

            I don't really understand the reasoning for blocking 32bit applications entirely (which I understand it does).

            I have heard some suggestions to upgrade then run an older version of MacOS in a VM

              You can run an older version in an APFS container on the same machine.

                I have no idea what that means, or implies... Can you elaborate?

                  Running OK here, and has been for the last few days.

                    Since they've removed 32 bit support - connection to the client's VPN using Cisco AnyConnect appears to be broken. I've not attempted the upgrade yet.
