El Capitan was released for free through the app store on September 30th, 2015. Here’s what Apple has to say about their new and improved OS:
“More than ever, Mac is the computer people love to use. And one of the biggest reasons is OS X. It’s what makes a Mac a Mac. OS X El Capitan, named for the iconic landmark in Yosemite National Park, builds on the groundbreaking features and beautiful design introduced in OS X Yosemite, refining the experience and improving performance in lots of little ways that make a big difference. And it’s free to upgrade.”
Here’s is some feedback and a review from CNET by Nate Ralph:
As Nate Ralph says in his review, El Capitan is more evolution than revolution, but it's the next step in Apple's relentless march toward efficiency, chock full of improvements along the way. And it'll run on just about every Mac purchasedin the last few years: if your Mac can run Mavericks, you're all set.
