    I have a question. Since the upgrade for Mavericks is free to all. Will my download of Mavericks be tied to my apple id if I create an install disk from the download?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I don't think so.
    I'm sure I've seen posts where a single Mavericks install USB has been used on more than one machine.

    1 - Why not just try it?

    2 - Since the last version allowed me to use the same USB stick on multiple machines, I would guess this would be the same.

    Ok, so the fact that you download Mavericks from the MAS, a transaction is taking place between you and apple (in theory, I know its free). So the purchase is tied to your apple ID. The installer itself (the .dmg file you can extract) from the download will not be tied to your apple id. No previous version distributed on the MAS has ever been tied to your apple id in this way.

    So in short, you can install the version of mavericks you download on as many compatible macs you wish :).

    Hope this answers your question
