MacVoices #14192: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Upgrading to Yosemite

Joe Kissell  has released the 1.0 version of his latest book, Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite. Joe has spent hours installing and reinstalling the betas, and wants to help you make the smoothest transition possible when the time comes. Backups, software upgrades and more are all part of Joe’s advice, but there are some things that might surprise you. Find out why running Yosemite on older Macs might not deliver the same experience, some things you need to be aware of as you upgrade, and some strategies for coping with abandoned, legacy software.
