First of all, apologies for the potentially 'troll-like' topic title. If you're an adamant Apple fanboy, not wanting to hear things from the "other side", just hit "Back" and forget this thread. I feel very discouraged with Mavericks. I previously downgraded from Mavericks to Mountain Lion, as the slowness to reconnect to Wi-Fi was bugging me (and so many others), Time Machine was misbehaving completely, and Console.app was not retaining window positions/sizes (admittedly, a small bug and not a dealbreaker). All of those issues, with the exception of the Wi-Fi slow-to-connect bug that began with 10.9.2, originated with 10.9.0. I have submitted numerous bug reports on those issues to bugreport.apple.com. I have installed 10.9.3 three separate times. Absolutely NO difference. No fixes at all. First install was a straight upgrade from my existing ML installation - the same issues persisted. Second was a test dummy install from SL with 6 user accounts. My god, that was a complete mess! The upgrade process completely mixed up the user accounts, not retaining settings such as accessibility settings for a certain user account. All desktop wallpapers were lost and reset to the default Mavericks wallpaper. The first boot after installation was particularly bad - I couldn't type passwords at all on the login screen and had to force reset, and the entire installation was just so sluggish and had a lot of weird misbehavior. (Same config upgrading to ML was completely smooth.) Third install was a clean, stock install, which seemed to work okay, even snappy, but the WiFi/TM/Console bugs persisted. At this point, I seriously feel discouraged with Apple and how they've handled Mavericks. I also feel like I'm talking to a brick wall - I feel like a lot of people has valid issues with Mavericks, but I feel attacked constantly by 'fanboys' or supporters who insist it's not Apple/Mavericks, that it's something I'm doing wrong, or something wrong with my install/config. It's not. It IS something with Mavericks; if it was my WiFi card, I'd have the same issue in ML. I don't. TM works flawlessly in ML. WiFi is connected right there after waking my laptop up (even after deep sleep). Upgrading from the test config to ML from SL worked a treat. I don't get it. I've submitted bug reports, etc. And, nothing seems to get fixed. Just stupid stuff most of us probably don't care about are listed on the release notes. It makes no sense that a direct bug report that gets human attention does not get fixed, especially if engineers told me a fix WAS coming for TM. It's 10.9.3 now - by 10.x.3 releases, typically the OS is smoothed out by then. Not Mavericks. I just don't know what to do anymore. I feel like my faith in Apple is disappearing. I'm afraid of what 10.10 will have to offer. I'm still on ML, because I can't stand the WiFi issue, but I don't want to be stuck on ML forever. Does anyone have any advice? No attacks, please. It's not my intention to troll this board.
