Upgrade to macOS Sierra

When I started my Mac today, there is notification to install brand new OS from Apple, the macOS Sierra. I am a bit doubt to install, thinking that there are apps that I use every day might wont work. But I finally decided to take the risk, I clicked the install button.



Installation process went very smooth, it looks that the setup files already downloaded. It took 30 minutes to complete the setup.

Everything looks okay. All basic apps work. The only problem I found so far are:
1. Adobe Photoshop, GIMP might not work. Sierra tells me that in order to run this app I need to install Java 6, which I think, as far as I remember, already installed in the previous OSX Yosemite. I will check this later.
2. Remote drives that I setup on Ubuntu via AFP does not work. Sierra asked my to enter password for AFP connection, so I entered the password, no incorrect password message, but all drives are not mounted. There is a question mark icon on the Ubuntu server in Finder. I don't know what it means yet. I also found that the status is "locked".

A quick opinion after installation, I didn't see any different in user interface, it looks and feel the same with Yosemite. I am expecting a new cool user interface from this new OS. Few things that I can't wait to test new features from macOS Sierra, which I think will be very useful, such as Siri, and sharing files and folders with other devices.

I you experienced same issues above, please share how you solved them. I will share as soon as I got the solution as well.
