Upgrading to Windows 10 or Mac OS X 10.11

Aug 25, 2015 | Apple Software

On July 29, 2015, Microsoft released Windows 10.  In the fall, Apple will be releasing a new version of their operating system, OS X 10.11 called El Capitan.

Major releases of new operating systems always requires some investigation to make sure they are compatible with the campus network (both wired and wifi connections) as well as campus applications and services. CTS plans on doing this research over the course of the fall semester. Until then, we recommend not upgrading.
