    Mavericks is Awesome! ...If you have a modern computer :D

    I have a Retina Macbook Pro with 8gb ram, 512 gb SSD HD, 2,9gb Intel Core i7 and it runs smooth. If you have a 2008/09 computer, I recommend to install Snow Leopard.

    What I love the most:

    - Flows amazingly with my Retina Macbook Pro, better than Mountain Lion. Less time to start, overall faster experience, less battery consuming.
    - Improve external display options: contextual toolbar/dock and full view on both monitors! :)
    - Finder Tabs are extremely useful and tags too.
    - Improve notifications
    - New Awesome Calendar

    Lion runs slow for a few days, then speeds up

    You know, I had the same issue, and I have an older MBP. My processor was running super slow and very hot after installing Lion. It was because Spotlight has to re-index the contents of the hard drive, and if you have a lot of files (as I do), it takes a couple days to finish. You can see by the spotlight icon that the index is "in progress" and it returns to normal when it stops. After it finished that, it ran much better. Not sure if that's your issue, but it might be.

    Thanks, this has persuaded me to wait on Mavericks (it sounds amazing!) I have an older MBP, and have Lion running well on it, and CS6 is working fine, so I think I'll hold for a while until I get a new machine. It's best not to tempt fate with older machines, I think. I'll have to start saving for one of the new MBPs – and I'll be switching to Adobe Cloud too, do you use that? (Just wondering how it runs on Mavericks.)

    The AirPlay Display has hands down been my favorite aspect of Mavericks so far. No stringing an HDMI cable across my apartment to use the TV as a second monitor -- and I love the fact that I can full screen an app and it won't screw with the second monitor's functionality. Haven't noticed a significant change with my battery life (mid-2010 mbp), though. :/

    haven't tried it

    Haven't installed it yet, but nice to see everyone's opinions on it. Helps make a decision of whether or not to pull the plug.

    So far so good. I've noticed a decent battery life increase. Some cool new features finder tabs, Maps (I love I can send directions right to my phone from my laptop), tags and how much? free!!! So far I haven't ran into any issues with any software, lets hope it stays that way.

    What does this even mean? Have you heard compatibility problems with using Mavericks? Haven't ran into any issues yet with any software or plugins and have better battery life with my laptop on the set. I'm pretty sure most people on this forum are working not "playing".

    Just updated, and really enjoying. It's twice fast according to Mountain Lion.

    BTW, hello forum, this is my 'the first' submit. I hope we will share great knowledge together. Cheers.

    I'm really glad they went the free route too! Paid updates are a thing of the past.
