    Downloaded Sierra public beta before, no problem. So when the public beta for High Sierra came out middle of this week, had no hesitation to try it out, specially the changes under the hood. Lo and behold, kernel panic... Now headed for PowerMac Megamall as I dont have installer for Sierra, though my files are all safe in iCloud. Any suggestions guys?

    ^System Recovery. (CMD + R on boot) - I hope you have a TM Backup, that would make things easier.

    macOS High Sierra (17A365) is officially out. As per the usual, make sure—and even double check if you must—you have a backup ready just in case anything goes wrong during the upgrade process. While APFS makes this a very exciting upgrade, there are still plenty unknowns as far as this radical change goes. Apps here and there might break so it's best you check the compatibility of the ones important to you, and data loss may be present. Scary stuff overall if you're not careful.

    EDIT: Someone I know did not backup and lost two years worth of files that's critical to his work as well as personal documents and data. Apple couldn't help him retrieve them; they tried for six hours and ultimately threw in the proverbial towel. Don't follow in his footsteps and never ever neglect your backup. Irrespective of how small the chances may be of this happening to you, always remember that regret always kicks in later.

    If you're currently running the Golden Master (17A362a) build released September 14, it's important that you still download today's release because it contains a different build number which means there most likely have been important changes made under-the-hood. Apple bumped it slightly going for 17A365. We may not know what the changes are, but they wouldn't simply bump it up by three numbers for no good reason.

    Compatible Macs:

    2009 and Later
    - iMac (Late 2009)
    - MacBook (Late 2009)

    2010 and Later
    - MacBook Air (Late 2010)
    - MacBook Pro (Mid 2010)
    - Mac mini (Mid 2010)
    - Mac Pro (Mid 2010)

    i've been using high sierra's developer beta for some time now without any major problems, except incompatibility with backup software like superduper, so i was glad to see and apply the final rollout today. superduper has also released a beta which i'm using now. i'd been backing up with time machine (always a good idea in any case).

    @suvaecito: i just have indesign CS6 (version 8.0) and it works just fine with high sierra. don't know about later versions, though.

    I'll be keeping my other machine on Sierra for the very reason that Wacom drivers are not yet compatible with High Sierra—or at least not until late October which is when Wacom plans to release the needed compatibility updates.

    Fresh install coming from El Capitan. I don't see or feel much difference in performance. Took me the whole day to reinstall my previous set up. Some apps (NTFS writer and other utilities) that used to work with El Cap doesn't work or crashes with High Sierra.

    What pleasantly surprised me was the hand-off between my MacBook Pro and my iPad Pro. I was browsing a page late last night, flipped open my iPad and the page was waiting for me. IIRC, the hand-off was from MBP Chrome to iPad Safari too, so that was nicely seamless.

    Tempted to use Safari more for its anti cross-tracking feature. And maybe auto-play turned off too. Safari para hindi ma PORNada. :)

    Will wait a couple of weeks before deciding to install High Sierra... Just like iOS11, after a week, iOS11.0.1 was released.

    You don't have to worry about it being a launch issue because it's also present in older releases of macOS. It's not a 'High Sierra specific' vulnerability.

    A patch will be forthcoming, the reason why it's not available on launch day is because Apple only gotten wind of the report concerning this vulnerability earlier this month giving them little time to deliver the patch alongside HS.
