    No one knew when this same question was asked on June 11th, click here, but maybe if enough people start new threads about it every week, someone will eventually know.

    I must say, I do find it highly unlikely. With Mavericks being likely to cost about $20, the 'I bought my laptop four/five months before the update was actually released, so I should get it free' viewpoint seems a bit optimistic.

    I doubt it. I suspect that once OS X 10.9 is launched in the autumn/fall anyone buying a Mac between the launch event and the actual release/availability date will get a free upgrade, but with the updates only being available through the Mac App Store that window will be small-to-non-existent.

    Funny, my Magic 8-Ball is cloudy as well when trying to ask about Mavericks.

    I expect the window will be between 30 and 45 days.

    No. And you should not keep your hope up for something that is unlikely to happen.

    Expecting Apple to lose another stream of incremental revenue? No this will not be free to those who purchased MBAs now. I wish it were (free) because I am one of those purchasing now, but it will be an extra cost when it gets released.

    No.
    Last year it was because ML was ready to be released a few weeks later.
    Now we don't even have a release date and they just gave the first beta at wwdc.
