Tried OS X 10.9 but did not like it for various reasons not the least being that it ate much more RAM than 10.8.5. I jumped back to 10.8.5. I have a MBP (early 2011) with only 4 GB RAM and here in Mazatlan, Mexico it is impossible to find RAM. And here comes OS X 10.10, when I wish I was still running 10.7.5.

Finally decided to give up on Parallels and upgraded to 10.9.2. It looks as if the retina MBP 2.7G i7 with 8G ram and 256 G flash drive is more responsive. My older MBP is behaving as sluggish as before. Had no problems during installations on both machines, saved a few Giga of HD space on both, and the new tweaks like finder tabs and so are neat. HOWEVER, among all the new features the one crucial to me is the multiple displays - finally I don't need to arrange my windows and screens each and every time that I arrive at the office and connect the MBP to the office monitor.

perfect upgrade/bugfix from apple. Thanks guys! The update went smooth and first of all the dock on both screens work now properly and is very responsive. The whole system is now much snappier.

The Server.app Upgrade/bugfix went also very well. Said it take a couple of minutes but it took 1 hour (!). I was really already in the mute to kill the upgrade and start over, but I left my server alone and it went smooth through and also here, my server now is much snappier and responsive. Thanks Apple!

After the 10.9.2 update computer seems a little more responsive--painless update. There must have been significant changes under the hood to account for the performance improvements.

So disappointed. In 10.9.0, Mail stopped working (crashes over crashes). In 10.9.1, Apple fixed it, and I gave it another try.

Now, in 10.9.2, I regret it, as Mail stopped working again on four machines simultaneously. Mail keeps crashing and crashing. I'm unable to use it.

I'm so glad I've got alternatives like the rock solid Airmail, which I heavily recommend.

Could you be specific about the crashes you experience? Are you an apple dev? Did you file bugs with apple? Where are the crash logs?

I'd be curious to see some details and if the cause for your crashes is a single cause or more than that.

Starting up Mail after the 10.9.2 update, it hangs about 2 minutes without doing or showing anything, then the crash message shows up. No conversion dialog box or the like.

I'm no Apple dev, and I didn't file bugs or collected the crash logs. I hoped to get some useful info here, in the first place. But obviously, most of you people had no problems with the update.

Well then, I'll do the only thing possible on those 4 machines: Reverting back to 10.9.1 via Time Machine. Then, waiting for a better update sometime in the future.

Strange, I never had such severe problems with any Apple updates prior to Mavericks...

Do you have any third party plugins in Mail? I haven't had any crashing issues.

Try starting up in Safe Mode (hold down shift key) to flush all the caches, and then reboot. See if that helps.

If not maybe you need to rebuild your database in Mail. Not sure how to do that if it won't launch though.

I had GPGMail and Attachment Tamer installed, but I removed them prior to the installation. No plug-ins in sight, but still no launch.

Confirming 10.9.2 did not fix the NTS issue with significant drift in System clocks - to get system back to correct time, I have to open Date + Time Pref Pane and unclick then click on the "Set date and time automatically" box. Drift is significant and well known issue - see

- I left my machine alone while a newly purchased 18 GB game was downloading. 40 minutes later I saw that my machine was sleeping. As it turned out the machine did go to sleep while AppStore was installing the (in the meantime completely downloaded) 18 GB App. I had to restart and after a while, AppStore showed the "Continue" Button (but 0 bytes downloaded) but it worked anyway and it finished installing in like 15 minutes or so.

- Activity Monitor has an error where it doesn't show anything unless you click a header (sorts) but it still does not update correctly. In such a case that tool is useless.

- Finder: while dragging items it often crashes (&relaunches), dragging images from Safari starts to fail after a while or after the first crash;

- Safari: Safari shows often blank pages after going back to the last page (history).

This system is confusing. In the middle of my work it started to install a big update for a game. Without showing anything in AppStore or elsewhere. Super stupid because Autoupdate is switched off

Scrolling Issues

OS X Mavericks has a weird issue. I observed that issue with Safari, Firefox and AppStore. I don't use other Browsers but I've seen comments about other Browsers having the same issue.

It happens this way: after a while, the mouse stops working correctly. If you try to swipe thru history in Safari, the current web-page becomes unresponsive and one has to close it because nothing else works. In Firefox, swiping just stops working but the content is not affected but scrolling with mouse/trackpad also stops working. AppStore has exactly the same issue as Safari but AppStore stops working completely when that issue appears, Force-quit was the only option left because it did not react to any input (keyboard, mouse, trackpad).

It seems that this only happens after visiting some WebSites - probably ones with heavy use of JavaScript - and when it starts to happen, it happens kinda "globally" (browsers, AppStore.app...) but a log-out/log-in or restart solves it.

Is Mavericks supposed to come with Safari Version 7.0 (9537.71)? Safari also seems a bit flaky; crashing or not responding a few times.

Calendar is not pulling in facebook events like it should. I then go to SystemPreferences/Internet Accounts/facebook (which I'm already succesfully logged in with there and enabled) I see calendar is UNchecked and so I check it.

I get back the following error message:
There was a problem setting up the account.
Calendar couldn't log in to the CalDAV server "webdav.facebook.com"

Any advice?

Got past the problem, not sure what the issue was, removed all usb devices to be on the safe side, had to option-boot to select the drive to boot the installer from -- finally got past the kp.

Apple OS X Mavericks is the latest release of the world's most advanced desktop operating system. Now free!

With more than 200 new features, OS X Mavericks brings Maps and iBooks to the Mac, introduces Finder Tabs and Tags, enhances multidisplay support, and includes an all-new version of Safari. The latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system also adds new core technologies that deliver breakthrough power efficiency and responsiveness.

iBooks
  • Download and read books from the iBooks Store.
  • Pick up right where you left off. iCloud keeps your current page up to date across all your devices.
  • Swipe through Multi-Touch books with interactive features, diagrams, photos, videos, and more.
  • Keep multiple books open while using other apps -- great for writing a paper or doing research.
Maps
  • Send directions from your Mac to your iPhone and use voice navigation when you’re on the go.
  • Explore select cities in stunning, photo-realistic 3D with Flyover.
  • See detailed directions, real-time traffic, and alternate routes.
  • Find restaurants, stores, and other places of interest with local search in Maps.
Calendar
  • Create new events in a snap with the new, streamlined event inspector.
  • Enter event locations fast with address autocompletion.
  • Add walking or driving travel time to your event so you know when to leave.
  • See a map of your event’s location, as well as the weather forecast for that day.
  • See holidays and Facebook events in Calendar.
Safari
  • Use Shared Links to discover new, interesting links posted by people you follow on Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Browse longer thanks to new core technologies that boost energy efficiency.
  • Easily access your bookmarks, Reading List, and Shared Links in the new Sidebar.
  • Protect your online privacy with new tracking-prevention features.
iCloud Keychain
  • Don’t worry about remembering passwords -- iCloud Keychain fills them in so you don’t have to.
  • Keep your website passwords, credit card numbers, and Wi-Fi passwords up to date across your trusted devices. Robust 256-bit AES encryption helps keep your information safe.
  • Sign in once to all of your mail, contacts, calendar, and other internet accounts, and iCloud pushes them to all your Mac computers.
Multiple Displays
  • Just plug in a second display to use it with your Mac -- no configuration required.
  • Access the Dock and the menu bars on each display.
  • Use full-screen apps on any or all of your displays.
  • Use your HDTV as a second display with Apple TV.
Notifications
  • Reply to mail or messages right from a notification, without having to leave the app you’re using.
  • Receive notifications for incoming FaceTime calls and reply with an iMessage or set a callback reminder.
  • Receive notifications from websites, even when Safari isn’t running.
Finder Tabs
  • Declutter your desktop by consolidating multiple Finder windows into one.
  • Move files between your tabs by simply dragging and dropping them.
  • Select a custom view -- icon, list, or column -- for each of your tabs.
  • Use tabs with full-screen Finder to organize and access all your files and folders.
Tags
  • Organize files with tags no matter where they’re located -- in iCloud or on your Mac.
  • Give a document as many tags as you want.
  • Click a tag in the Finder sidebar to see all the files with that tag.
Advanced Technologies
  • With energy-saving core technologies in OS X Mavericks, you can surf the web longer on a single charge.
  • Watching iTunes HD video is now more efficient, so you can watch more video when you’re not plugged in.
  • App Nap regulates applications you’re not using so they consume less energy.
