For a release that involves something as huge as changing the name of the OS, the new Sierra default wallpaper is shamefully similar to El Capitan’s.

Surely there’s some California landmark that’s a little bit more different than that, if only Apple had looked hard enough.

I don't think Apple's goal was to find a Califonia landmark/mountain range that looked strikingly different from El Capitain. They just wanted the wallpaper that's aesthetically pleasing. I don't find it the least bit shameful.

You gotta remember who we're dealing with here. :D

I tried installing this last night, but my MBP got stuck on the install progress window saying "33 minutes remaining" for well over an hour before I gave up and went to sleep.

Woke up this morning and restarted my MBP and it seems to have reverted to El Capitan, but now I can't figure out how to try and install the beta again. When I go into the app store, it shows macOS Sierra Public Beta as being downloaded, but I can't figure out how to install it.

Any ideas?
