    I think the name is pretty stupid, no matter what the name signifies. Out of all the possible names, all they could come up with was Mavericks? How lame.

    I have mixed feelings about the name, too. But ultimately, it will remind me of the sports team. :/

    I guess Maverick doesn't mean the same in the US as it does in the rest of the English speaking world but I'd have thought Apple would have looked into that before 'doing their own thing (and not necessarily in a good way)' - ie being a Maverick!

    What is the definition of "Maverick" that the rest of the English speaking world uses or most commonly thinks of? I'm from the U.S....and these are the two definitions I think of:

    1. an unbranded range animal or a motherless calf
    2. an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party

    Over on the right hand side (or should that be 'right side'? ) of the Atlantic, Maverick usually has quite negative connotations and implies someone who cannot be trusted.

    Apple has a 14-day return policy. If getting OS 10.9 for free is that important (which will probably cost less than $20 when it is released)...you could return your new Apple computer...and wait approx. 3 months to buy another computer in the Fall when Maverick is officially released.

    You have to weigh the benefits vs the hassles just to get a $20 OS upgrade for free!

    Specs:
    Imac 27", i7 3.5GHz, 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Usually developer copies do iot have the system specs included. Back when Mountain Lion came out the first developers version would install on non Core 2 Duo machines. The Gold or retail version killed off installing on oilder machines.

    Whisper down here was OS X.9 Cougar but I guess Hollywood has tarnished that name lol.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks for the info! But if the English speaking world checks just about any English dictionary they will see the definitions that I mentioned.

    I'll give you a reverse example of how language/terminology/slang in the UK calls a common everyday item something that much of the rest of the world can also be seen a derogatory.

    What are cigarettes called in the UK? That term is considered derogatory to certain segments of the English speaking population throughout the world.

    Whatever happened to the Ocelot? (Perhaps OS X Ocelot doesn't roll of the tongue smoothly - then again neither does "Mavericks", which is a place in northern California).

    I figured they could've gone the way of native plants of California...or native species of California...

    What's next, OS XI "Malibu"?

     iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.3
     iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 9.3
     Mac mini early 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4
     MacBook unibody/white late 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

    Specs:
    iMac 2.66 GHz 20", iPad Mini2 32GB, iPhone6 64GB, Watch Sport 42mm Black, iPad Air 2 128GB
    So what next - OS X Iceman?


    Nice to see iBooks on the Mac at last. About time too.

    Probably won't work on my iMac anyway.


    Not keen on some of the iOS7 - wonder what hardware that will require. Probably work on my iPad Mini at least

    Scroll with your wheel and see what they did . I should move this part to hardware but am too upset right now at Apples decisions here.

    I wonder how many people will come home after a night of hard drinking and, thinking it is a swanky trash bin, barf into the fan of their roommate's new Mac Pro...

    Hahahaha at XJ! I have seen Tall Ash Trays in some doctors offices with a hole at the top that looked just like that new MP. Sorry, I can't get the image out of my mind!
