Whatever about iDVD, iMovie HD doesn't run right under Mavericks. If you save a project a try to reopen it it won't reopen so you need to save or export as a one time only opportunity. I hope to God they bring back a decent timeline editor to iMovie this time, because the timeline editor in iMovie '09 more than sucks.

Huh. I had JUST bitten the bullet and created a ML boot USB over the weekend for my pride of Macs still on Lion. Well, I won't wait two years to create one for Mavericks - if I can get it downloaded today.

Won't install on 2008 Mac Pro, downloaded and when installing it booted up and have had black screen for 90 minutes
post #51 of 121
Well, that is my 2008 Mac Pro fucked !!!!!!, screens has been black for over two hrs, hard drive is just spinning
post #52 of 121
I shouldn't be surprised, but boy is 10.9 unstable. Not to mention there are quite a few general rendering bugs, in Safari as well as the OS GUI.

While updating from Windows 7 or before does cost money for Windows 8.1, if you have Windows 8, the update is free.

I'd probably power it down and reboot at this point.

Ditto. Having the feature natively, without a plug-in of sorts, would be nice.

Mavericks GM seed just got a "Mavericks Developer Preview Recovery Update 1.0" drop on App Store Updates of 479 MB. Oddly, updates show (6) but the list only has one.

If anybody with Mavericks has time to run CS5 through the gauntlet, I'd love to hear how it performs.

They are, to new computer, iPhone, and iPad purchases.  

post #65 of 121

I wonder what would happen if they made Logic and Final Cut Pro and Aperture free?   I doubt they will, but it would be an interesting twist.  Now they have to figure out how to make OSX not installable on PC Clone boxes to shut these Hackintosh users down.

Which is absolutely ridiculous considering that the updates were only $20 in the past.    The only people who I can understand not updating are those who might not have a high-speed connection, especially since Apple stopped issuing the OS updates on physical media.      Having said that, I was in the office the other day without my Mac, but with my files and I needed to make a Keynote printout.   To my shock, the Mac we have for the designer didn't have Keynote on it.   So I was going to buy it just to get the printout, but it turned out he had too old an OS on his machine and Keynote wouldn't download.   He didn't even realize he had an old OS.   

 

The $20 was for the OS updates were certainly incredibly reasonable.    Where this does make some sense for Apple is that if they can get the majority (or virtually all) of the users on the same OS version, support costs should go down.    

 

I really didn't mind paying the $20.    However, the "free" policy also makes sense since the iOS updates are already free.     Provides consistency.

Excellent!
As a shareholder, glad that Apple is finally learning how to save (not spend as much) money...

Agreed. Any IT Department complaining about upgrade fees on OS X must be living out of a shoe box.

Nope, this has totally wrecked my Mac Pro, cannot even boot up, just get the spinning wheel with Aple logo on white screen.

Don't Apple test anything anymore?,

Nope. Obviously every single Mac Pro that tried to install Mavericks has been bricked by…

 

Oh, wait, I’ve been running it for months.

Ah I never get tired of that Apple installation joke "Time Remaining: one minute". And you just know at that point that you had better be prepared to be patient for 10-20 minutes.

 

Tags on project files is a huge thing for me. Loving Mavericks already. No problems faced.

AppleInsider = Apple-in-cider. It's a joke!

I've used macs since 1985 when I typed up my first research paper. Never used anything else never wanted to.

Now I have a dark grey screen asking me for username and password and it is not accepting anything I put in, including my iCloud or iTunes details, or even my administration username and password

So effectively, the mavericks install has bricked me Mac Pro

Bricked might be an overstatement. I had this issue a few beta releases ago and had to install from scratch then restore from a Time Machine backup. I'd thought they fixed that from Mt. Lion to Mavericks. What version where you on pre-10.9 release?

If you already have it purchased, all updates remain free. It’s free to PURCHASE on new devices if you haven’t ever had it before.

Windows 8 cost money yes, Windows 8.1 is Free for people coming from 8. How is that any different from OSX? Everyone has been paying fee's for all the OS X.x versions. I actually bet Apple decided to make it free since Windows 8.1 was free.
