    Is AppleSeed there non-developer beta testing program?

    I believe so but why would they get a later version than developers?

    On stage at iPad event. (Oct 15?)

    October 15" could very well be an all Mac event. Obviously the Mac Pro is due, however I don't think it will come alone. I would think that Apple would deliver a 4K screen to go with it, to a lesser extent I'm expecting an Apple file server/disk array/TB attached storage or whatever you want to call it. In other words I would expect that Apple will deliver a full solution for all sorts of professionals.

    Then we have the Mini, it could be abandoned completely, updated or morphed slightly into a new container. If abandoned they might replace it with a Haswell in a Mac Pro Chassis. In any event I would expect enough Mac stuff to fill an hour, especially if Apple has a bunch of Mavericks ready apps to deliver.

    i've been wondering (to myself until now) if they were holding mavericks until a mac pro announcement.

    seems they have an awful lot of stuff to announce pretty quickly. mavericks; mbp refresh; pro; ipad; minis (please please please)

    This is why I see October 15 the as Mac & Mavericks only. Lots to do and it would only require one software app update to eat up much of the allotted time.

    I would think they will finish removing the skeuomorphic look of apps before they go final. Is Reminders still black? What else still had the look in older builds?

    Sure hope not. Ruining Notes was bad enough.

    No showing up in software update which means this is a major release that can't be updated. They probably removed all of the debugging stuff.

    it's the other way around, the MacPro will require Mavericks, thus is waiting for the Mavericks release.

    This is the GM version.
    Just thinking that that this may be I annocened (for obvious reasons) GM or maybe there is one more with probably double digits or less bugs removed difference.

    It would be nice to get it for free.  I worry that if it becomes free it will go the way of the original Mac OS-- where updates were always free, but not really very compelling or quick to come. 

    I'd happily pay Apple $40 a year for an annual update cycle (where each release is of the quality of the past two anyway.) 
    Id happily pay $10 and $20 on some updates (this one not included) but over $20 no. From business point of view profit=more work, but from the current perspective is people paying 3 times more for little but out of date, harder to use, $20 more per year for updates...ugh. The 3 times better computer and bigger screen and more uses can only go so far in these markets.

    I actually hope not. I like my OS to be consistent in style and it seems that Mavericks is going to do just that with the removal of most skeuomorphic effects. <span style="line-height:1.4em;">Since we are not expecting a style </span>
    <span style="line-height:1.4em;">overhaul with Mavericks, I do not want to see anything that looks like iOS 7. </span>

    Agree. OSX should be OSX. Don't try to iOSnizes it. Not good with iOS 6.. And not good with iOS 7 either.

    Your reply has nothing to do with my initial comment. I want the bubble Aqua look in OS X to go away which has nothing to do with turning OS X into iOS.

    After using iOS 7, every other OS on earth looks old and slow, OSX included.

     

    It needs iOSification, clearly. Just because Windows and Ubuntu suck it doesn't mean that Apple shouldn't be pushing harder.

    Yes, the usual suspects will complain, but once again, Apple should just show them the middle finger.

     

    iOS, has a platform, is the most powerful OS ever created. What an awesome ecosystem. It's time to change OSX's UI.

    I think I'll wait for the GM though. I need rock solid stability to get work done

    As you should. Putting a beta version on a production machine is the most stupid thing anyone can do.
