El Cap vs Sierra

MBA mid '13. I'm gonna make a dual boot. Mavs and ???.
Need to keep Mavs for Pro Tools version I use.

Would El Cap or Sierra be a better choice for any reason?
The only differecne that I see that I might be interested in is Siri.
I imagine the load on the proc is higher with Sierra?

I'm on Sierra on my machines. Keeps closer to current, still gets all OS updates/security updates. If it is a machine you don't plan to upgrade again soon, I'd personally recommend going with Sierra.

Sierra has been solid for me. Late 2015 iMac 27".

I stopped at Sierra on my '15 MBA and it's rock solid, knock on wood.

Sierra. Between the two choices, I don't think El Cap does anything better than Sierra.

No El Cap is in use on anything here. It is not compatible with the driver for a card I had in my Mac Pro. Sierra worked fine.

Sierra is not so different from El Cap that it's worth keeping El Cap. Plus, it's likely to receive security updates for another year where El Cap loses support this month.
