I run three operating systems depending on task, but lately I've been using macOS.

I had a ton of wifi problems with El Capitan that I had to work out. But I am installing a lot of new software right now, I guess I should check with the vendors to see if they are compatible with the new OS.

But mainly I'm just wondering if I should upgrade the operating system. Is it good?

Is it good?

That's really subjective and depends on what you want out of it.  If your WiFi is having problems in El Capitan, you may possibly have a hardware issue.

I would only suggest upgrading if your software supports it.  That's one of the main problem with OS X, upgrades break apps at times.  As someone that manages multiple systems, I would test it before ok'ing upgrades on all other systems.  Sometimes you have to wait until software vendors update their software, sometimes you can just upgrade immediately, but I don't upgrade until I test.

I would wait until 10.12.1 becomes available. I never upgrade to the first version of an OS. With El Capitan, I waited until 10.11.5, in fact.
