Sierra isn’t too bad, but yes, I’m not running it on my main machine just yet.
I like to wait a few weeks or more, just to check it all on my “test machine”
and make sure everything works correctly. Then just waiting a bit to make sure
and read if anything needs updated or to iron out the “bug fixes”. :)
You can update directly from Yosemite to Sierra. (even fact you can upgrade
directly from Lion 10.7 straight to Sierra), so you don’t need to upgrade
first. Just go straight to Sierra via the Mac App Store.
But yes, definitely make sure everything is backed up well first :)
