    "You get what you pay for."

    March 20, 2014  |   By OSXpert

    Version: Apple Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

    Pros

    It's better than windows and Mountain Lion OSX.

    Cons

    It's worse than snow leopard.

    Glitches with Java

    Hid "Quick look" feature inside a menu, and is no longer available quickly as it is meant to me.

    Folder tags are now little dots instead of bold colors. The point of a tag is to clearly see what I marked, unfortunately, the change to the dot makes me look for the dot now so I can find the folder i'm looking for... hmmm... how about a tag for a tag Apple?

    Summary

    It seems the developers are not getting much sleep, or are just the good ones are leaving apple... hope one of the good ones starts a new OSX that is superb!

    "Excellent upgrade"

    March 5, 2014  |   By macintel--2008

    Version: Apple Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

    Pros

    It looks as if the retina MBP 2.7G i7 with 8G ram and 256 G flash drive is more responsive.My older MBP is behaving as sluggish as before. Had no problems during installations on both machines, saved a few Giga of HD space on both, and the new tweaks like finder tabs and so are neat. HOWEVER, among all the new features the one crucial to me is the multiple displays - finally I don't need to arrange my windows and screens each and every time that I arrive at the office and connect the MBP to the office monitor.

    Cons

    My older MBP is behaving as sluggish as before.

    Summary

    Finally decided to give up on Parallels and upgraded to 10.9.2 - I'm glad I did.

    "Smooth upgrade"

    February 25, 2014  |   By nouser

    Version: Apple Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

    Pros

    Feels faster and I like the new GUI. Upgrade to 10.9.2 was flawless with no issues. Excellent integration with the IOS devices. (2 iPhones & 3 iPads) I'm seeing about 30 minutes more battery life.

    Cons

    None apparent.

    Summary

    A painless upgrade. This one fixes a potentially nasty SSL issue.
