El Capitan goes Gold

 macos 10.11 

MacOS 10.11 went gold, solidifying Apple has the intent to fulfill, their release date of September 30. I’ve been testing the new OS and barring anything catastrophic, October should be a great time for Mac owners. El Capitan brings some fairly innovative solutions for window placement, brings some features from Mail for iOS and much more like:

  • Better Notes, like iOS 9 notes
  • Improved Photos
  • Split screen features
  • Transit information in Maps
  • New fonts
  • Better localization support
  • Better hardware accelerated graphics performance with Metal

Here is some video on the iOS-ification of MacOS. Apple is serious about making the experience familiar across all of its products. Operating system convergence isn’t just a concept anymore.
