    I'll have to wait until I get homeI've been running the betas though and it seemed very stable after my wifi issues were taken care of in one of the early December betas.

    I'm a late adapter to the Yosemite software. I just updated from Mavericks this morning because back when Yosemite was released I didn't have time to load it, and then reading about people having wifi issues, I decided to hold off. Now that I've read 10.10.2 beta resolved people's wifi issues, when it was released yesterday I decided today would be "thee" Yosemite day. Overall, the install took about 40ish minutes from beginning to end, and I do like the new icons along with the additional perks in the notification center.

    One question I do have though.....I've figured out that when there's a black dot under an icon in my dock that there is something new (new notification). Now, since the update, my Finder icon has a black dot. I've opened up the app but cannot seem to figure out what I'm missing. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions of what I could be be over looking? TIA for any help.

    Oh !! Well, then that solves that lol. Thanks much TT. So one other question...I guess that means there's always a dot under the native mail app as well too?

    Thanks Keith !! This makes a lot of sense to me now.

    I had no clue what it was after the OS X finished loading up.

    The dots took the place of what appeared to be a little light shining up on the icon to indicated it was open.

    Thanks Karen. That little light that your talking about I've honestly never noticed....then again my vision isn't what it used to be either, and I do struggle with color issues as well.

    Only time will tell.

    I updated to the newest version yesterday and along with that installed a new external hard drive. I can't say if this issue is attributed to the update or what it is.. but what happens is when I plug in my WD ext HD to my Mac Mini the notification icons at the top right disappear (time, user name, notifications, etc), then reappear for a second then disappear again repeatedly until I unplug the external HD. I've formatted the drive, still same results. Anyone have any recommendations for this?

    No issues so far after updating my MBA. One of the bug fixes was web pages loading faster that's fixed. I thought the issue was my home wifi network.

    I was experiencing random lockups - stuff that pointed to graphics issues - during the late betas. So far, I’ve only seen one lock up in about 2 days with the 10.10.2 release. The betas were locking up 3-4 times per day. #whew

    I haven't had much time to sit and browse much with the new OSX, but one thing I can say.....I don't really like the new boot up screen with the Apple and loading bar. It's just a cosmetic thing, but hey it matters to me lol. Oh well !! If that's all I can complain about, then life isn't so bad lol

    Hi. I upgraded to Yosemite on my MacBook Pro 2010 with 8gigs of RAM and an i7 chip. In general, everything has been fine, but lately, I get the spinning beach ball more often than I want, especially when the Mac first wakes up from sleeping. Even after it has been in operation for a few hours, response time becomes annoyingly slow. I am doing nothing different and have installed no new programs, so I am puzzled. I have two friends, each with iMacs that are about a year old and they, too, are experiencing the same issues.

    The spinning beach ball will appear for upwards of a minute, and it can be in the finder, a browser (Safari and chrome) or an app like light room or Photoshop. Is anyone aware of some setting or config issue I/we can look at?

    Thanks.

    I would try doing a clean install of Yosemite if you haven't already.
    Here's a link to make a bootable drive.

    Thanks for your reply. When I upgraded to Yosemite, I downloaded it from the iTunes Store and installed it. I saved the distribution on an external drive. How is that different from what you are describing as a "clean install"?

    Basically doing a clean install is wiping your drive and then installing Yosemite on a "clean" drive vs upgrading/installing on a drive with the previous OS. So you have fresh/clean drive for Yosemite and no possible conflicts with the older OS
    Doing a clean install can solve a lot of issues.
    For example I couldn't get continuity to work on my 2007 iMac, making and receiving phone calls until I did a clean install.
    Here's a link on what you need to do for a clean install.
