I think so, but the way I normally do it is to install the new OS on an external drive first and boot from that to test things out. That way if your not happy with it you still have your old system intact and still available.

I bought a disk caddy years ago which lets me use standard internal HDD drives which I can just pop into the caddy, like putting bread in a toaster. It makes it really easy to play with many different versions of the OS without risk.

The unit I have is one of these Newertech Voyager Q, its an old model now which unfortunately only supports drives up to 2TB, but its very flexible and lets me try out new OS's and boot from old backups very easily.

I should probably upgrade mine to the newer model but as most of the old drives I play around with are the 1 and 2 TB drives, out of my NAS and Drobo when I upgraded to using 3TB drives, I still have plenty of usable drives I can play with which work fine with the old Voyager Q.

Now the new OSX 10.11 (El Capitan) is coming in Fall. Can I then just wait and upgrade from 10.9 to 10.11 bypassing 10.10? Or I must upgrade through each version? Pls advise.
