    What do you think of Mavericks? Anything noteworthy?

    All these features are mouth watering, I can also sense quick reply for iOS after that notification thing

    I'm disappointed - I had a £10 bet with my brother that it was going to be called Sea Lion. How my heart sank when they showed that image and it turned out to be a joke.

    When he said that he would like to mention three features, and then said Finder tabs, Multiple Displays and Tags, I really thought "that is it???".

    15 minutes later, I'm *really* wanting Mavericks! So many awesome features! :)

    Why did people get especially excited for the calendar? I'm fairly new to Mac, is it that they went back to how it used to be?

    I am a bit dissapointed that there is no new filesystem, but all the power saving and optimization features are simply incredibly amazing. If it really works that smoothly, then this is indeed some ingenious software engineering and a much bigger deal then most people would think. For example, something like timer coalescing Craig talked about is really difficult to implement. The multiple display support is also a big deal and much harder to do properly then some might think.

    And they seems to have solved almost everything people complain about in ML :) I am happy that Apple seems to focus at technical, innovative aspects of software again and not just looks.

    Haha, same here :D

    I was right about Final Cut X. As much of a problem as people had with it, it was clearly a prototype of where Apple is headed. Those of us who took the time to learn FCX are familiar with tags already. Glad to see it spreading.

    OpenGL 4. With that, everything has been said.

    Presented similar way to Snow Leopard, with great improvements in Finder and OpenGL 4... I looks really good!

    Agreed. Now Unity 4.x can now support 3d tessellation so I don't have to Bootcamp.

    Its the software library (API) which allows your apps to access all the functionality of your GPU ;)

    App Nap is the feature that worries me most. Will you be able to exempt applications from napping? I would hate for a network application to timeout because it was made to nap by the OS.

    I like the new technical features. Im disappointed that the design is the same. I was hoping for some visual UI improvements somewhat similar to iOS, which looks amazing.

    I wish we could have it today but it'll go nicely with a new 15" rMBP. Really pumped about the multiple monitor enhancements. I even did a little dance.
