    Here's a tricky question. I don't want and I cant update my mac. Because all my studio hardwares aren't supported by the latests OS versions.
    And I'm also quite satisfied with my current 10.7.5

    The only problem i'm facingt it, its because a lot of new apps I've downloaded doesn't work anymore in my OS and ask me to update my mac.

    Is there any trick to make them work?

    Apps like Feedly, for instance.

    Thanks.
    Gus

    What you could do is install Mavericks on a second partition and use that as your main OS, then option key boot back to Lion when you need to use the studio hardware.

    My question is: would it steal me performance since it means more archives installed in my computer :D Are the new os version really that good?

    Nah.... it would only be an issue if having this second OS and all its files etc on there made you disk close to full. But otherwise it will not slow things down.

    You can look over Mavericks features here and see if anything there appeals to you. Mavericks does have much better memory management, so if you are a bit short of RAM Mavericks can help with that.
