    I cannot wait to own it, which I have said a couple times now XD. I think Apple really hit a home run today.

    I LOVE the new power management I needed longer then 5 hours batter on my MBP, this will provide.
    I didnt expect this type of update from Apple, oh and I'm going back to iOS 7 again ?Android is no use for me since the new notifications centre and the new control centre.

    It looked great during the presentation. A lot of time was devoted to the new OS.
    Maybe some of you marketing people can chime in: why Mavericks & not Maverick?
    Just seems awkward referring to the OX in the plural.
    Good Luck

    What I wanted from OSX was speed, and Apple will provide with these optimisations.

    Mavericks (location) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It’s the name of a surf area just south of Half Moon Bay, on the coast south of San Francisco... not sure why, but the area is called Mavericks (with the 'S')...

    UPDATE: On Tech News Today (TWiT network), they referenced the "Mavericks" and stated that the area/beach was named after dog (as stated in Wikipedia)... and that 'S' (Mavericks vs Maverick) is "possessive, not plural", as in "Maverick's beach"... and later shortened/simplified to just "Mavericks".

    That’s kind of where I am. I ran the betas for 10.8.4, but that was tweaking an established OS, where this is a new beast... don’t want to risk hitting a "point of no return" on my working computer.

    Why not just backup with Time Machine? Then if it is too buggy just reload with ML and restore from Time Machine. I'm contemplating running the beta I have iOS 7 so I'm not so sure if I can deal with both devices being buggy lol

    Multiple monitor support intrigues me the most. Will definitely be very helpful to me in the classroom.

    I've downloaded but it installed it yet. I need to have time to get a bootable Carbon Copy Cloner backup first so it's easier to go back if needed. Hopefully I'll get installed in the next few days.

    That is exactly where I am... in fact, I’m doing my SuperDuper! back up as I type this... torn between excited and apprehensive... the rush of a beta tester...

    I just jumped in with both feet about 2 hours ago.

    So far, so good. Still trying to get things re-setup.
    • Activating Messages and connecting with iMessage was a pain in the keester, but I think I have it done.
    • Had to reboot a couple of times to get wifi to connect, but it seems solid so far.
    • I couldn’t get photos to show up in Photostream from iOS 7 to Mountain Lion, but it’s working fine with Mavericks
    • A couple of my utility apps aren’t playing nice (Moom and Bartender)
    • Had to tweak some settings with my Drobo to make it show up properly
    • TimeCapsule seems to be ok now, but initially it wasn’t looking at any backups prior to the Mavericks install


    I’ll keep tweaking and testing and reporting. I haven’t had any crashes or lags or anything like that (so far, knock on wood).

    I have my CCC bootable backup done but Mavericks will have to wait for tomorrow.

    Disappointed to here that Bartender breaks though. I love that little utility.

    It doesn’t "break" per se, but it shoves everything in the menu bar off to the left, and it somehow causes some of the OS X stuff like date/time, wifi and battery icons to not display.

    EDIT: Whoa! Back the truck up, there, Nelly... I launched Bartender again with the intent of capturing that section of my screen for a visual... it opened like it has under Mavericks (stuff shoved over to the left, and some stuff missing)... so I hit the SHIFT-COMMAND-F4 to get the picture, and everything snapped back into place - including the "missing" icons. I obviously couldn’t capture the image of the effect, so I hit ESC and all is good!

    Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once in a while!

    thanks for the update now I'm on the fence about running it. I don't care about running a beta but I have some little apps that I love and if they aren't gonna work I'm in a pickle. Damn what to do lol

    The tabbed Finder is nice... it’s so much easier to move stuff around or get to stuff quicker. I have been using PathFinder since I discovered it several years ago, and the new tabbed Finder is giving it a run for it’s money. The major advantage of PathFinder is the side-by-side panes layout... and the quick look preview pane.

    I’ve been trying the new Safari, and it’s ok... never was a big fan - I prefer FireFox, but am trying to force myself to use Safari at this point.

    Maps on the Mac is nice, but still see it as a "once every couple of days" thing. Not something that I need/use every day.

    And regarding the Bartender thing, it’s just flaky now. The funkiness with shifting everything left and not displaying some info (see above) is intermittent. It happened a couple of time last night, but every time I tried to capture a screen shot, it corrected itself. Odd.

    I also dabbled last night with the AirPlay monitor/desktop extension a bit. Interesting concept, and it seemed to work ok. The default is "mirror desktop" and the resolution is poor. But after setting it up, it worked pretty well. It may be something that I would use from time to time.

    I am still very impressed with the stability.
