    At this morning's WWDC keynote in San Francisco, Apple announced the latest iteration of OS X, Mavericks, which features a new tabbed finder, independent handling of multiple displays, tagging, and a Safari redesign.

    As promised, Apple has begun offering developers beta access to Mavericks. The beta software can be downloaded from Apple's developer site and devs can also access the new iOS 7 beta as well. According to Apple, Mavericks is its most power efficient operating system yet.

    While developers can get immediate access to Mavericks, the general public will need to wait for the software's official release, which is expected to take place in the fall.

    Most serious proper OSX release since Snow Leopard.

    I am very pleased. Post-Jobsian Apple is finally alive.

    This looks fantastic, especially some of the under-the-hood changes with how the OS uses RAM. I'm extremely excited for this. :)

    In for all the MacRumors idiots that download it from torrents then complain about it being buggy and other nightmares running it on their main machine expecting an early beta to be as good as a GM release.

    me too, and with Creative Cloud update next week, I'm pretty sure a performance increase will be nice.

    It baffles me that Apple has waiting until now to add tabs to Finder. Path Finder has been providing that functionality for about five years now, it's been in web browsers much longer than that.

    They ran out of cats! But I have to admit, as a German, I thought exactly the same. :D

    Is it wrong to mourn the loss of the 'Skeuomorphism' ?
    I quite liked the leather. Made it feel like my desk...
