Upgrading from Snow Leopard to Lion...or higher

Posted on Dec 10, 2013 10:20 AM, Apple Support Communities - iMac (Intel) | discussions.apple.com

Back in my windows pc days, they always warned against upgrading to the next new os because it usually caused major problems.  Is this the case with mac? My mac is about 4 years old and running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

 

I'm not having any problems with it and I have been very happy.  But I can't use a newer version of Safari than what I now have and I'm afraid that apple will stop supporting the older operating systems sooner or later.  So just how risky is it, to try and upgrade?  Thanks.
