    I have one doubt on the next OSx.

    I read Apple is working on next Mawericks 10.9.5 but as far as I know next one should be Yosemite.

    Why working on two different OSx?

    Please advise, thanks, daniele

    Far from here
    Mavericks is 10.9.x

    10.9.2, 10.9.3, 10.9.4, 10.9.5 are versions (updates) of the same OS, Mavericks.

    The next OS is a brand new one, 10.10, aka Yosemite.

    This is standard procedure. Apple does not stop supporting the current OS with its next major release. It supports older versions of OS X going back at least two versions. In the case of Mavericks, OS X 10.9.5 will probably be the last numbered release. However, if something pops up, then it may release a patch that addresses the issue. Even at that, Apple will continue to support OS X 10.8 at least until the release of OS X 10.11.
