I need my MBP for work so never upgrade OS X until it has reached a .2 at the very least. I didn't upgrade to Mountain Lion until 10.8.3 came out.

That means that I will use ML at least until next year and am glad that Apple is still working on updates to ML.

Thanks for all the replies,

I was obviously not thinking straight. So Lion is still receiving updates? Or will it become unsupported when Mavericks gets released?

Thanks again!

It will not receive major updates i.e. 10.7.x but it will likely receive security updates for a while and minor bug fixes, as well as raw camera support and other non major updates.

You obviously have no Idea how faculty at a Tier One University act. They buy it. You Support it. It's not their problem if you don't know how (which is why we have the Dev Account) to support it. They want support and they want it now! Hardware is an issue? Bah, just go buy whatever it takes to make it work.

Even harder when as soon as Apple releases Maverick machines will start coming with it. So there is the immediate need, plus our internal apps.

Since I've worked at two Universities, you're a little off. Also, if your faculties control their IT budget then that's hilarious; IT should control the IT budget, based on feedback from user requests balanced with what's practical. Working any other way isn't working at all.
