    I am thinking of installing Mavericks over Snow Leopard.
    Can I log into Mavericks and not tie my apple ID to my account or use it for login, etc?
    I want still use it in the App Store though like in SL.

    How does Mission Control (or whatever it's called now) compare to Spaces. I love Spaces. Ctrl + arrow (up, down, left, right) is so easy to navigate between them.

    Yes, of course. Add your Apple ID after the installation, when you open the App Store.

    And Mission Control is no where near as good as spaces, unfortunately.

    So I don't need my apple ID to log into 10.9 or associate my apple ID with Mavericks in any way (excluding the App Store)?

    You're not forced to use your Apple ID to run Mavericks.

    Excellent, thanks.
    I'll begin planning to migrate.
    Too bad about spaces though.

    TotalSpaces 2 is outstanding for me. Check it out ;)

    +1 on TotalSpaces 2.

    And in Mavericks the use of spaces with two monitors is much improved; you can make each monitor a different space.

    When I was thinking of moving to 10.7 and 10.8 I was looking at total spaces.

    For me this is the BIGGEST improvement, for work. I LOVE having email/chat on one monitor and my browser in full-screen on the laptop LCD, and I can scroll the spaces/desktops independently on each display.
