    About a month ago I got a message saying safari can’t find server. Tried unsuccessfully to upgrade to sierra. Xfinity Comcast is our provider.

    Barbara: Did this error appear when you tried to upgrade to Sierra? Or somewhere else? Did you try again?

    Gary I am a mature user of my MacBook Pro and full time carer for husband with Parkinsons so not much time to spare to have a huge learning curve. Will I notice a huge difference from 10.11.6 to Sierra? I don’t go in for all the fancy things using my computer – I just do very basic things such as email, web searches etc.

    Marg: No, I don’t think so. Email and web surfing are pretty much the same.

    My Microsoft suite is 2011. Is this compatible with Sierra?

    Sylvia: I don’t know for sure, since I am using the latest version of Microsoft Office (I assume that is what you mean). A quick search comes up with lots of people that say it works, but it needs to be up-to-date (version 14.5.6 or later?).
    I find it is always best to keep your software up-to-date, though. SO you may want to consider getting the newer version of Office at some point.
