Mavericks comes with it's own version of AppleMaps... and with it, you can send routes to your iDevices... can't wait for it to finish installing on my MacBook so I can play... meanwhile, if anyone wants to read up on doing it... here's where to go: http://www.imore.com/how-send-directions-maps-os-x-mavericks...
I'm all loaded. Very nice. There are plenty of updates, need to run update and restart a couple times to get everything.
Please make good (bootable) backups before upgrading -- I use SuperDuper.
Do you have any critical applications? Do you know for sure they will run under 10.9?
My son delayed the 10.8 upgrade for a while waiting for some of his critical AV apps to run under 10.8
I'm currently waiting for my victim/test laptop to finish the 10.9 upgrade. I've done the app upgrades. I'll move mission critical and production machines to 10.9 in a week or so, after others have tested out the bleeding edge...
The ability to send data right from Apple Maps to my iOS devices is so easy. BaseCamp better watch out. BaseCamp needs to get much more user friendly.
Apple Maps and iOS is doing what Garmin BaseCamp and their GPSr devices should have been doing years ago.
I'm running a late 2008 15" MBP, with a small partition for another bootable volume used for diagnostics, maintenance and repair of the main volume, and another external bootable drive for serious maintenance. All updated to Mavericks.
The computer runs great, the new OS has not bogged down the "old" hardware in any way.
It also looks like Permissions has been addressed. There were dozens, if not hundreds, of permissions that never seemed to get resolved no matter how many times I ran a utility. Now all but one are resolved. That right there is a big help, whacky permissions cause "deer caught in headlight" issues.
I also notice the computer runs cooler, in that the fans are not kicking on as they used to.
All apps I use are working just fine.
I am also very curious to see what it grows into.
