macOS Mojave: Don't upgrade yet.
We've been road-testing macOS Mojave 10.14 and while we love the "dark mode", we've seen some very strange and unwelcome behaviour. Mojave is the last macOS to run 32-bit apps "without compromise", which seems to indicate there are changes under the hood, some of which have resulted in very odd restarts. Your experience may be different, but if your system is running fine with High Sierra, don't change it.
Reminder: Adobe Creative Cloud
