I am sorry for those having difficulty, but actually, it is working just fine for many people. There's nothing "select" about it.

Me, I didn't mess with downloading until after I got the Apple email this afternoon, which had a direct link.

I put 10.10 on a separate partition and it's doing well. Nearly everything I've run into has been due to third parties not being updated (SMC Fan Control, Adobe Flash, TRIM Enabler, various Safari extensions...)

In a word, it is gorgeous. I agree that Mavericks looks like a dated and vintage OS in comparison.

I used the dev preview from day one and I really fell in love with the look. I installed it on a separate partition, and was finding myself in there more and more, even know most of apps didn't work correctly in Yosemite. However, I stopped using it so I can be astonished again when it's released. I really shouldn't have played with it at all, as I really wanted to be surprised, but I'll bet it will run much more smoothly than it did for me first time around, although the last update I had for it it smoothed out some wrinkles.

I've been using Mac since 10.3.7 or .8.. forget which one and rarely have I been dissatisfied with a new OS release.

Maybe I'll upgrade to Yosemite... when another California location OSX comes to the market. Early adopter = poor support for what matters (e.g., GPU drivers, unix tools and developer packages, etc).

I got the beta downloaded and installed in 20 minutes over the top of DP4.

Then I wiped the partition and reinstalled again as a fresh install.

Now wondering if - because I'm using the beta - I'll miss out on DP5 etc if they come out. Maybe I'll change again if that happens.

As for Yosemite itself, I don't really like it. Much prefer to more professional look of Mavericks/Mountain Lion. The apps look tacky like an Android phone. They work on iOS but not on OS X for some reason.

Scott Forstall, the creator of OS X Aqua interface and the father of iOS was fired and now Mr. Ive, the hardware designer is in charge of software design as well. That's the reason behind these changes.

Is this with the latest update to Office installed, 14.4.3?

OS X Yosemite Beta under VMware Fusion

As was mentioned previously, it is possible to install it under VMware Fusion. I upgraded a Mavericks VM that I had sitting around in my library. I did a quick write up on it with some screenshots and more here:

http://purelinux.net/files/440a72ed0...6a348ebb-7.php

Unfortunately, you aren't able to preview the translucency and other effects, though everything else seems to work.

Federighi rocks and if Apple is smart will continue to be the go to man for events. As far as Yosemite. I have been using it all day and it looks and has been working great.

Are you serious? You compare the amount of people who would buy a movie on iTunes at any given time with the amount of people who jump to get the public beta or the final public release on it's very firs minute of being available?

looks great

I just want to say Thank You Apple, for getting rid of the staleness in Mac OS-X and in iOS7. I love the new flatter look with the translucency. I will be looking forward to iOS8. It's finally nice to see Apple showing great taste with this new look. I do not understand what there is to hate about it. I could not stand the look of iOS6 anymore and Mavericks although was just fine to me but this Yosemite looks leaps and bounds better.

The buttons are grey because you are using Graphite. I used Graphite under Mavericks, but when I moved over to Yosemite about 6 weeks ago I stopped. Dark mode is awesome, couldn't do without it. I'm looking forward to apps updating for Dark mode, some are difficult if not impossible to use with it when you can't see the icon in the menu bar.

You have it backwards. Office 2011 not working on Yosemite is not Yosemite "not being prime time." It means Microsoft needs to get to work on their official release fixing incompatibility.

You do realize Microsoft is testing and finding these bugs at the same exact moment?

On that note, this will probably happen with their 2014 release. Get ready for a paid upgrade.

Just installed it on my early 2013 rMBP 13". It looks amazing! It's so nice, that it's actually making me second-guess my wanting to trade it in for a PC. Hmmmm... decisions decisions.

You would choose this (Windows 9)
