+1 to you being insane -- nobody expects you to buy new hardware every OS release. one of the valuable things about Macs is how many years of service they get...my 2006 imac is still in use, running ML.

unless youre an electrical engineer on the apple hardware team, i doubt youre qualified to say why or why not hardware-related features like powernap should function on given hardware.

I think they'll do 10.10. Either that or have Macs start running iOS (aka the end of the world).

What would constitute a "big" new whatever in the OS for you?

I still think Leopard was the best, by the standards at that time. Back then features like Spaces, Time Machine, QuickLook and Stacks would be so awesome, they would really make your computer a lot better. Now you get small features added, but full of bugs and inconsistencies (like notifications, gestures, Mission Control, iCloud, AutoSave, Resume, etc…).

I think that Apple has gone from a very well controlled system with great solid features to a loosely looked-after system with tons of different small features, many that annoy you more than they help, while the old ones stick around with broken aspects and new bugs that never get noticed.
Very well said!

I doubt it. OS X and iOS are for completely different purposes. Why would Apple waste screen space with a drop-down menu on iOS? Why get rid of the dock for rows of icons on the desktop in OS X? The two will continue to share features with each other, but I doubt there will be a true unified OS unless computing somehow moves totally to mobile/touch devices. I have read some reviews of Windows 8 on Surface, and it's not exactly a polished thing.

Nice to know....

but still I am not believing in yearly OS updates. Seems disrupting to me. And about that, 10.9 how will be named? Aquatic Cat, Aerial Cat, Thundercat?

I have heard this as well. It may be a move that is made in concert with restricting all application installs to the App Store.

I look forward to Jony I've and his new UI.

My iPad and iPhone are primarily communication and media consumption devices. My Mac is used primarily used for work, video editing, word processing, and picture editing.

Until it is feasible and convenient to do all of my work stuff on a tablet or phone, they will remain as toys.

"But hits identified as coming from Apple's own networks carry a much greater likelihood of being legitimate,"

This +1

Who's to say Apple isn't faking this themselves ?

This would then conclude this would article be false .....

I mean, to "play it safe" and not be opening anything up to suspicion... I would have not done this till it was time

Opps... Another one slipped out the door.

Apple has a reputation for "dropping breadcrumb" ..... Is it really that hard to keep it secret ? I would say.... no.. its easy. Just don't drop them ....

(but them we wouldn't have sites like MacRumors, now would we )

Unless Apple intends for applications like Adobe CS6, Final Cut, etc. to stop working over night, this is not happening. Many pro users depend on these to make a living.

And I doubt Jony Ive and his new UI will see light next year. Maybe the year after.

I doubt Apple is faking this. OSX 10.8 was showing up on server logs this time last year.
