OS X 10.10 Yosemite: The Ars Technica Review

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Yosemite is a milestone in the development of OS X, a product that John Siracusa has been reviewing for Ars Technica since 1999.  Learn what’s new in Yosemite: iOS integration, Extensions, application changes, iCloud Drive, and, of course, the bold new look.  This is not a how-to guide; it’s a review of the operating system that explores the technologies and philosophies behind the features, all within the historical context of the Mac platform.

Awesome sauce

Sure you can read it for free online but buy it because it's the right thing to do and maybe we can convince Mr. Siracusa to keep putting himself through hell every year to produce these epic reviews. 👍

Always a great read at new OS launch time!

John put another great review together this year and I'm glad to have made time to read it. I personally enjoyed the Swift details!

Siracusa Does It Again!

An exceptional work covering everything going on in Yosemite with a great historical perspective.

You can almost feel the yearning for HFS+’s replacement when John reveals Core Storage is now on by default for even boot volumes.

His coverage of Swift and, SIL, and LLVM IR is unparalleled.
