Upgrading my Early 2009 Mac Pro to macOS Sierra, part 2

Okay, so I didn't bother doing a backup first. I've had terrible problems with OS X upgrades in the past, usually screwing up some how.

But I took the plunge - I'd already upgraded two Mac Minis successfully.

And … it went without a hitch. I don't think I've ever had an OS X upgrade go so smoothly, especially on my Mac Pro.

But I'm now running macOS Sierra on my (obsoleted) Early 2009 Mac Pro!

Next up … swapping the two quad-core CPUs (Intel Xeon W3520 Nehalems running at 2.66GHz) for a pair of hex-cored CPUs?
