[QUOTE=charlituna;17917230]What sleep problem. I've had ML on about 40 home and work computers bad have no issues with sleep, so I'm curious what has been going on for folks[COLOR="#808080"]

Check the discussion boards. A lot of us have computers that don't wake from sleep, or (like me) take 45-60 seconds to wake form sleep, when it used to take 2-3 seconds. problem appeared right after 10.8.5 installed (no problems with 10.8.4) . Based on the problems, it may be related to having external devices on your network that were powered on while you were sleeping. (I turned my BD drive off and sleep works better now - but I shouldn't have had to do that...

New iCloud.com design is out and their web apps is much better designed than the native ones in Mavericks. It's not the best design but still better than the half-arsed ones on Mavericks.

Apple, please don't release Mavericks like that.

That was the most annoying long-standing bug ever. Glad that's now sorted.

Is it really in their best interest that my SSD becomes slower and less reliable with time? I don't think Apple has such aggressive anti-consumer policies, but I might be wrong.

If it's something that's enabled by default on SSD-based iMacs, MBPs (Retina and non-Retina), etc, I really don't understand why they can't just add a simple check that determines if your drive is an SSD and, if so, automatically sets TRIM support to on.

Guess I just have to live with Apple's seemingly punishing decisions and its apologists, who just forgive any and every thing the company does.

I'll just keep using TRIM Enabler, tyvm!
It potentially cuts into their profits, of course they're not going to make it easy for you.

Ah. That makes sense. My Mac is my personal/development machine, so it has no interaction with anything Exchange. I don't think I've even opened Outlook.app. If I did, it was by accident.

Nine builds "including" the GM, hence 8 beta builds, exactly like Mavericks so far. And the release schedule of ML was much more chaotic. They didn't have any type of steady pattern. You'd get a release 2 weeks after one, and then get another one in 3.5 weeks and then 1 week after. So far Mavericks have been every 2 weeks, apparently Apple chose to do this in a more steady manner than ML.

I don't recall the specific details, but someone looked at the code and found out that its a latent bug in the window initialisation code - it was using size parameters before they were properly initialised. In such cases the values are often undefined per specification. Incidentally, it worked on previous versions of OS X, but on Mavericks the component initialisation order was changed and the value was zero, which results in division through zero. This is a very nice illustration of a bug in the application code, which does not get detected, because it uses some undefined convention/feature/anything which by coincidence happens to work. Bugs like these are NOT Apple's fault.

Or if you want a more close to life example - this is like complaining about illegal parking ticket by saying 'but I have parked here for years and never got a ticket!'. Well, it was illegal all the time, just nobody bothered to check it
MplayerX works on my machine. Only issue is the damn menubar appears on the secondary monitor when focus is put on the primary monitor. The dev seems to have fallen off the face of the earth, unfortunately.

Actually, I'm not. And if this is the most ignorant post, then I don't know what that makes yours. To think that one company should make their OS work with hundreds of other companies software is quite stupid.
