Installed and rebooting into it now - let's see what it's like...

Anyone else doing the same?

RE: Downloading....

Yup, up and running. Haven't seen much difference on the surface apart from the obvious new apps. Need to get some info online to see what's under the hood...

RE: OS X Mavericks

I remember now - tabs in Finder (finally) and also being able to use multiple displays properly are the two biggies for me.

RE: OS X Mavericks

Had to get a replacement because the milk frother stopped working properly (fortunately bought from Lakeland who replaced it with a new one, no questions asked). Since then, all good. Had an espresso earlier on which I'm getting into more since our trip to Italy  Smile

RE: OS X Mavericks

Just downloading it now. I expected to pay the usual $25 / £22 for this. 'Free' was a pleasant surprise. Of possible relevance to fellow 'computer-Fi' enthusiasts, the guys at BitPerfect are all celebrating that it finally re-supports Integer Mode, something that the last two versions of OSX have not. Don't even go there because I've no idea what it means or why it's so important and even if someone explained it I doubt I'd fully grasp it, but apparently it's Good Thing.

Super Duper works for sure. I'll see if I can test Handbrake and Synology Assistant for you (don't have the others).

Thanks Professor, these are definitely the three most important of the list so look forward to your feedback

RE: OS X Mavericks

As usual it looks like I'm downloading via Apple's Mars server so expect feedback from me sometime on October 25th. In 2015.

Sorry, rebuilding my main Mac with a clean install at the same time - Synology Assistant definitely works. Will test Handbrake tomorrow.
