Hi.  I believe my old Mac is ready for a clean install of the OS.. almost 8 years later and it’s ready for a face lift.  All data is backed up off line .. i’ve Been researching the pros/cons of moving ahead from the Mavericks (which has worked fine BTW - just sluggish in recent years) into ultimately the Sierra release and i’m Looking for anything that will make that decision clear to me.  

I won’t ‘fix it’ if it’s not broke... so unless i see/read something that gets me a reason to accept the risk, i’ll Just re-install Mavericks.
