    In case you guys didn't hear about it already...Mac OS 10.9 "Mavericks" is now available.

    And the price...FREE!!!

    Apple - OS*X Mavericks

    p.s. I saw that this was mentioned in the "Something New" thread. But I'm thinking an announcement as important as this (a free OS upgrade) deserves it's own thread!

    Downloading here. With my DSL at 18k feet from my CO it will take a while!

    Anyone know for sure how to make a flash drive? Going to search now. I want a clean install.

    Installed and up and running.

    MDS_stores is eating into my CPU and both fans are blazing... and yet, it doesn't appear that Spotlight is indexing. Not sure what's going on, but I'm afraid to unplug my machine.

    Some of you guys are VERY brave installing an OS upgrade so quickly...especially if we're talking someone's main computer.

    Who knows what "early-adopter" glitches may be lurking!

    Hey I have my Windows 7 HP Pro workstation that I game on if it messes up! Grin

    What Chris just posted has me worried though! I hate loud fans.

    I've upgraded every version of OS X starting with Lion on day-one and not had any problems at all..

    OS X Mavericks is going to be no different..

    Yup, straight upgrade... didn't do anything special, other than to make sure Time Machine was up-to-date.

    I will very likely do a clean install later on, but for now, I wanted to kick the tires on Mavericks. Not sure if the procedure for creating a boot drive is different... I have no reason to believe it is.

    I was expecting a free upgrade after Microsoft offered a relatively cheap upgrade to Windows 8 when it was released.

    Although I am a Mac noob and not loving it yet (not hating as well, kinda like though), I was eagerly expecting this one because of the under the hood improvements which are said to improve battery life.

    Backup is done, download was started and let's see how it goes.

    Important question. I'm running 10.6. Will any apps I have not run at all or not run correctly under 10.9? I'm thinking in particular of things like iPhoto and iMovie.

    If no-one knows yet, that's fine. I just won't upgrade yet.
