The TeX Distribution Preference Pane (in System Preferences) is also broken under Yosemite. I usually wait until 10.X.1 at least to install a new OS version because some of the software I use is OS X version specific and lags behind the release. For Yosemite I may wait until I hear that the specific problems folks have been seeing (specifically the passing of the environment to GUI apps making system calls) has either been fixed or a work-around has been found.
