I always get cut by OSX upgrades, so I'll wait a month or three and see what feedback it gets.

I've been running this for many months now.  It's buggy as hell and has been all through the beta program.  The GM I've been running for a few weeks still has many of the same issues I had in early builds.  MS Office tends to freeze and crash a few times daily.  Safari takes an age to load a website (discoveryd all over again?!?)  I'm pretty annoyed BUT I guess it could also be that the likes of Microsoft need to apply patches to their apps.

MS does not release an update to fix crashes until the final OS X is released into the wild so expect an update for 2016 soon.

Been using the GM for awhile, reverted back to Yosemite as I noticed that wifi networks weren't syncing properly through iCloud keychain..

e.g. SSID's added on either Mac or iPhone wouldn't appear on the other

I downloaded and installed it this morning. No problems with the install but did have issues when I tried to do a commit to Github via terminal.

An error came up "xcrun error invalid active developer path (/developer) missing xcrun at /developer/usr/bin/xcrun" which the help of good old google was solved by installing Xcode app. I think I was missing the Commandline tool and the only way now to get it is to install the xcode app from the App store.

Was running the beta version of El Capitan on my 12" Retina MacBook, went to App Store this morning and saw the update to final version had already downloaded? It downloaded while on 'Power nap' mode perhaps? 

Upgrade from beta to final literally took 3 minutes to install. Seems rock solid so far, didn't have any issues with the beta.

I'm using GM too but I will install the final version over the GM even though App Store is telling me I already have latest. The build version is slightly different. Plus I don't want to see the 10.11.1 update reminder *lol*

Installed this evening, seems pretty snappy!

The use of Metal now makes stuff like Mission Control feel smooth as.

Installed this on my 2014 iMac and it seems so snappy compared to before. But! I had to roll back. It seems MySQL server doesn't play nicely and a couple of plugins for the Eclipse Java dev. program won't run at all. Not sure why. Thankfully I only need it for uni so assuming I pass this semester I can delete all that an upgrade!
