I would try installing right over first, if it seems like it's running slow or doesn't work well then you can wipe it and do a clean install and migrate everything back either manually or using migration assistant.
It's been about a month since installing El Capitan.
Most of the changes I've gotten used to - the pre-set tabs for Safari, for example.
Not used to the cheesy appearance of the control buttons on the upper-left-hand corner of windows. No three-dimensionality as there used to be.
Some things are slower, but some are faster, so no problem.
The best characteristic of the new OS is that it handles Flash content far better. I don't have to re-boot as often as in the olden days of 10.8.
Not too bad.
I still have not bitten the bullet yet. Still using Yosemite & loving it meaning never any issues. Have no intention of moving on up to El Capitan. I try not to mess w/what ain't broken don't fix it motto. Seems like Apple now is coming out w/OS upgrades a little too fast for my taste - once the OS gets to .05, Apple presents an OS upgrade.

Exactly. Plus if you think Yosemite is flat and boring, wait till you see El. Butt ugly. El's newer and better right? But if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I have to go between both. For my main boot drive I'm still on Mavericks. It's a Filemaker Pro/Filemaker Server version/El Capitan incompatibility thing. I have a data base I need to access remotely quite a few times a day that is stuck on Server 13 due to upgrades needed on the Client computers.
