I want that feature, but none of the annoyance that comes with its constant nagging.
Dropbox perhaps?

Welcome to iOSX. (See my sig).

Don't resist. Do it the "Apple" way. Do not question them - they know best!

Yeah, these aren't really solutions... My wish is still unfulfilled :P Roll in 10.9!

That's a good point. Didn't think about that. HMMMMM !

Im afraid apple is way too comfortable with osx users now, as it is still much better than windows. the money now is in iOS and there will be only new hardware features for osx customers, no software real features, just un-necessary ui changes, which btw are not improvements.

face it.

You're right. Mountain Lion added absolutely nothing. /s

No, but it is far better than Lion anyway. I am stuck with 10.7.5 on my Mac Pro while my MBA is running 10.8.3 and I must say that I much prefer working under Mountain Lion, even though my Lion box is much more powerful machine.

I, personally, am quite comfortable with this kind of update. I find introducing new features step by step in yearly cycle much better than spewing all at once every two years, leaving conservative and less experienced users petrified and overwhelmed by a landslide of brand-new features and completely different UI.

Look at what happened when Lion was released. Some people still use Snow Leopard, that's how revolutionary Lion was.

OK, and what would the next Apple OS be like? Any proof of concept out there?

This is disappointing: http://www.digitaltrends.com/computi...pples-next-os/

And the iOS-Mac integration into a single OS, will it suffer the same fate as MS Windows 8???

Lion wasn't revolutionary. In comparison to Snow Leopard, Lion was a step back in every sense of the word. It benchmarked slower by about 5% or 10%, don't remember which. It added lots of UI changes that annoy anyone who's not keen to having their computer look and feel like a tablet. And it added things that looked nice but were far less functional.

Snow Leopard was to Lion as XP was to Vista. Both OS X Lion and Windows Vista were updates that added hardly anything more than annoyances for advanced computer users.

It will be a while before we see something new from the "ground up". I'd love to stick around for it but if 10.9 is just more unicorns, frolicking bunnies and pretty butterflies I'll just move on to something else.

Adding Siri and Maps and calling it a new OS version is not a real OS upgrade.

Thanks for the link to the petition, I signed. I would love for the file system to be upgraded and while it doesn't affect me much, I would like the graphics to be up to date. It's not like Apple doesn't have plenty of money to implement these things.

It's been almost a month since OP thought it would be "Tomorrow". Wish these so called prediction thread would never be made since they are almost always wrong...
