More metadata in the FS, yes. No ZFS in 10.9.

That is a standard description for a system administrator job. Has nothing to do with ZFS.

Panther (Mac OS X 10.3.x) was really impressive (and fast). Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6.x) is still much better than Lion & Mountain Lion, especially the GUI.

It depends which announcement you are referring to. Mountain Lion was unveiled in Feb last year, but was shown off again at WWDC in June, which was around the time the Upgrade Program began.

Here is a link to the ML upgrade eligibility. http://www.apple.com/au/osx/uptodate/

Google Plus matters... but I've given up on it being integrated because Apple hates Google.

In case you hadn't realised, the world economy is pretty screwed. Apple is one of the few big companies out there that is reliably turning a profit, and people are likely fleeing to it and exiting it based on global economic news just as much as due to any product announcement.

I very much doubt the average investor in apple is keeping tabs on OS X.

Don't expect anything until 10.8.3 is released. Apple is probably taking their time getting this minor update right since there won't be many developers left using Mountain Lion once they release the 10.9 Developer Preview.

That matters not. These "social networks" are nothing more than a waste of one's time, and a way to avoid face-to-face contact with other people.

It won't come out until 10.8.3 has been out at least one week.

If that.

Don't see what that's got to do with it. Do they only have 1 person working on all of OS X?

Not really. More to do with giving developers a chance to fix their apps for 10.8.3 before moving on to 10.9.

That's how they did it last year. And since last year was a first for a surprise seed of a new version it came exactly one week after 10.7.3.

I am sick of these silly annual new versions of OSX. Last time, it messed up my VMWare file which wouldn't work on Mountain Lion. Out of all the 200+ or so features that Apple touted, less than a handful are relevant to me. The whole place has gone mad. Apple is sick with consumerism, wanting to bring out the latest toy every year. Stuff the stability of apps that have to be updated every year just to work with the latest OSX version. Some of us out here are trying to get some work done on OSX.

Ok, since stability is important to me, I do not upgrade oSX with everyone else. I wait till its more stable, e.g. 10.6.6 or 10.7.4. But it impacts me when I need to buy a new Mac, and it comes with a buggy early version of the latest and greatest OSX, and when I need to transfer my older software, e.g. my VMWare data file.

Money has gotten to Apple's brain, but the fact is, these Apple management people stare at the mirror and con themselves into believing they're still make great products. Why else is the cash pile growing, they justify themselves.

- Bring back a 2 year release cycle of OSX
- Each new OSX, get it up to around 10.x.9 to be totally rock stable
- Have wider beta testing so we consumers are not used as paid beta-testers.

If I didn't have to buy Macs every so often, I would not care. I just would not update until the OS was rock solid, and all of you can gnash your teeth as you help Apple discover bugs. But I do regularly buy new Macs, and I don't like them coming with buggy releases such as 10.7.0-3 and 10.8.0-2
