    Anyone had a good play with it yet? Not as stable as Yosemite Beta for me (last year)

    I had it installed for around a week on my MacBook Pro Retina 2014 but Origin does not work at all (just says not connected online) Origin know about it but are still working on it, still has lots of bugs around mail and a few other bits, had a few nice features though.

    Mac mini is my only computer and it's needed in full working order so can't risk trying a beta. What are the nice features that leap out, out of interest?

    Nice bits were side by side screens, new notes, wiggle mouse to find cursor and a dashboard update, I guess there are lots more but did not have time to test all, unfortunately the Origin app problem killed the beta for me as if it's not fixed until near release I would have no access to my games at all.

    We put it on one of our MacBook Pro's at work but Outlook kept crashing, as did Mail - we use Exchange 2007 which might be the issue here. So at the moment we are keeping and eye on it but in no hurry to upgrade as it needs to be stable.

    Thanks. Do you use Better Touch Tool? Just wondering whether the side-by-side screens works any differently or better natively in El Capitan.
