The million dollar question is what will work and what won't to beta drive this thing. Scary territory sometimes.

I just want to know if my Mac's are still supported. Since they didn't say any specific requirements like they did with iOS 8 (no iPhone 4). I'll assume it's the same as Mavericks.

In which case, our Mid 2007 iMac is still in the game
The thing shipped with Tiger!

Yes.

I think I'm going to wait for the public beta. With an all-new UI it'll likely be a mess.

Very curious to see if "metal" improvements will affect MacOS X also.

I was wondering the same thing. I feel like they would've mentioned it during the keynote. It's too bad, it's on OS X where I would like to see improved 3D performance.

They said summer, so I'm guessing July. They probably want to get through a few Developer Previews first.
