For me north from Santa Cruz on Hwy 1.

OK seriously :) just curious. I upgraded from Mountain Lion on my iMac and from Snow Leopard on my MBP.

my mbp came with ML, i did the DP upgrades, it messed up and i had to delete everything on my mac (froze the launch screen thing, gave me the eternal loading symbol). Restored to ML via internet and download DP8 or one of those directly and never upgraded again until the final build came out, the equivalent of iOS GM build lol.

I have a late 2011 MBP and have upgraded to every OS since Leopard. So, that's a long-winded way of saying "from Mountain Lion."

Right just realized that.. a lot of us here probably upgrade every major release. But you came from ML cool.

I was sweating bullets when upgrading my MBP from Snow Leopard because it's older but more importantly I use it for work :eek:

My thinking was this poll may reveal some interesting stats for those who did the jump to Mavericks skipping some because it's free? Or just had one too many drinks one night and nothing else to do.

I haven't migrated to Mavericks... yet. I'd much rather wait until more of the bugs are sorted out. Apples NOT AS Trustworthy as they once were. It would be great to see them return to their past practice of delivering well sorted software. It was never perfect and that's OK, BUT... It was indeed far better than their rather complacent, buggy deliveries of the current time.

If you wander around here long enough you'll see old posts people cursing the hell out of Lion when it was released. One of the reasons I didn't upgrade my MBP until Mavericks, plus I don't like cats.

My two upgrades to Mavericks went smoother than expected, but I had low expectations from the start. And I'm a convert from Windows who had to deal with the Vista mess.

Oh please, just stop. Mountain Lion got flack, Lion got flack, Snow Leopard got major flack, Tiger (although their best IMO, got flack), Panther got "some flack" and Jaguar had bugs all the way to the final update before Panther, so please spare us that Apple use to give quality software. It's the same, they just have more customers now that came from Windows expecting a damn miracle cure and they didn't get it. :p

As far as the pole, I technically upgraded from ML but my 27" QC i7 iMac came imaged with Lion.

But a damn miracle cure is why Apple dumbing down OS X to accommodate them... :rolleyes:

That's your opinion and not fact and thank goodness that your opinion has zero affect on my computing life. :rolleyes:
Then why bother imposing your computer life onto others whom genuinely believe that Mavericks sucks...? You hold shares with Apple...? :rolleyes:

I took two Mac's from Mountain Lion to Mavericks and one Mac from Lion to Mavericks. All went well with no hitches anywhere.

I'm simply sharing my experience having purchased nearly every new MBP since their release. Why so many... because the work I do requires the most speed & resources currently available. If my Mac was for personal use only, the annoyances caused by buggy releases would be easier to tolerate. Nonetheless make no mistake, I am NOT bashing Apple!

It's just a computer and bugs are to be expected from time to time.

And just who the heck are you to speak to me that way? Oh, I get it. According to you, MR should only be a freaking pity party for people to whine about how Apple's system sucks. My mistake, could've sworn this is an Apple enthusiast board to share views of all types and to HELP people and not just to spread FUD. This is not a poop on Apple forum. Go roll your eyes somewhere else.

I got to Mavericks from Mountain Lion - which was very good in its class, however i am still discovering everything about Mavericks so cannot judge it yet.

From my experience with Computer Systems, as a computer Administrator, no one computer system is faultless - all have bugs that need addressing eventually. Wishing for the un-natural perfect solution to all Mac Problems in a Computer System is un-realistic - far better if you suggest ways to avoid bugs in the first place and/or contribute to Apple where you found a bug, when and how it manifested itself to you. What importance you feel the bug is, how it affects your confidence in Apple or the product you have bought into are all factors that matter to Apple.:cool:

My MPB came with Leopard installed. Since then, I have update to every new OS the same day it's been released.
