Loaded my 32 gigs of memory and now I am downloading Catalina. Any tips and do or don't advise much appreciated. At my slow connection I hope to have it ready to instal sometime next week.

I don't have it, can't install it, & do not want it.

From what I read they've fixed about 25% of the bugs in 10.15.3

Make sure any and all third party apps are updated to the latest versions available, otherwise they're not likely to run on Catalina.

Catalina is 64-bit only coupled with a read-only boot drive and it's created havoc with all kinds of software. This includes older software from Apple.

Everything is working great except for my Olympus updated software. It says it will not work with Catalina. I will try to download the Oly software again and start fresh just to see what happens.

Love Photoshop and I have been testing iPad Pro full Photoshop for Adobe for a few months and love it. Needs more time to be fully equipped but it is smooth fast and super stable. I only had one crash I had to report to adobe the whole time I ran it. Not testing anymore I just don't have time. Lightroom for desktop is so sloooooow I just can't handle it so I stick with Photoshop. Lightroom for iPad is fast and easy though.

These venn diagrams were made by a professor for his class, he made got dozens of them and they all involve Adobe. I wish I had them all.
