I was foolishly tempted by its notice to upgrade from Fawn to Gibbon and
soon (about 2 hours later) got out of my depth and have had someone
(costing) else to sort me out, putting Fawn back because apparently, amongst
other problems, the early basic macminis have not enough RAM to handle
Gibbon correctly. Really the Upgrade notice should have warned me of
potential difficulties, instead of being such a pleasant invite. Only free
for those who already know?
