    Like can I update without being a developer? Don't flame me now, I'm not one of those people that blame everything on the OS

    It was released to the public today. Anyone can update by going to settings, general and then software update.

    OS X cares even less about your developer credentials than iOS.

    He's referring to Mavericks, not iOS 7.

    I don't mean to sound rude...but... do you know what you're doing? From the information given in your posts on this thread I feel like you're awfully confused... I'm willing to help, I just am not clear on what you're trying to do?? :confused:

    You get Updates to Mavs via MAS.

    The only versions you can fully download are DP1 and DP4.

    Well I'm kinda new to Mac (had windows for 4 years, switched to Mac last Friday, same day the new iPhone went on pre-order). I'm no noob at technology if that's what you're implying lol I'm majoring in CIS/CS

    I wasn't implying that you're a noob, and I figured you were new to Mac. Welcome! :) Any-who, do you have a Mac developers license? If so, you can get the beta Mavericks, to install it will "mount" then double click (or drag to applications) and let it do its thing. Further updates are available through the Mac App Store. You'll have to download the Developers Preview 4 then install 5 through 8 via updates in the App Store.

    ----------

    Also, if you're going to update the the beta version, I recommend doing a time machine backup, but be aware that the backup of Mavericks is not compatible with other OS X versions.
