    I'll stick with ML 10.8.5 which runs just fine & suits my needs.
    Why gamble with Maverick?

    Not sure anyone will give you a reason to "gamble". Your OS choice doesn't really impact anyone, which is nice. Choice is good.
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    This may be an ok plan for now...but what about in 5 years and you're still using 10.8.5??

    If 10.8.5 is doing everything you need at the moment...great! But eventually it won't...and then you'll upgrade.

    There are negatives, however. See user reviews:

    Of course there are negatives...there are always negatives...and there will always be folks who don't like something. You for instance...said "No Mavericks for me"...but you really didn't say why Mavericks isn't for you...specifically.

    I'm basically saying (just like the CNET's review "Bottom Line" statement)...that overall...I think that the majority of folks opinions are positive towards Mavericks.

    If Mavericks had 100 new features...I'm sure that if someone looked hard enough...they could find at least one person who didn't like at least one of those 100 features (100 people not liking one different feature each).

    Does this mean that all 100 features stink...just because 100 people didn't like at least one of them??...no. Because each of those folks (individually) may have only disliked 1 feature...but liked the other 99.

    You gotta look at the whole thing...then give it an overall "Thumb's Up" or "Thumb's Down"...or 7 out of 10...or 8 out of 10...etc. Not trash the whole thing for just for a couple complaints.

    One thing I learned years ago for every product Apple makes there will be iHaters waiting to post all the negative things either by here- say or wild guessing.
    I found over the years we eventually have to upgrade to move on with other apps so I learned to adjust to it rather than panic learning at the last moment.
    Mavericks for me has been the smoothest with real world sped increase.

    Why are people always finding 100 negative things whilst all it takes is to find 1 positive thing ?
    Beats me I must say.
    Anyway, I have been enjoying Mavericks since the day it came out.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Same here. Besides, I love it when I get stuff for free! When was the last time Microsoft offered any of its operating systems for free?

    I agree. As long as the other 99 things are "ok"...or at least things that I would be indifferent to.

    One super positive thing in each new OS release I think is reasonable (for me). So far from what I'm hearing/seeing...I like:

    - the new energy saving features
    - the way multiple monitors are managed
