OS X 10.9 Mavericks: The Ars Technica Review

Ars Technica provides an in-depth look at OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

John Siracusa has been reviewing OS X for Ars Technica since 1999.  The tenth major release receives his usual, thorough treatment.  Learn what’s new in Mavericks: the features, the applications, and the technologies and philosophies that underpin them, all within the historical context of the Mac platform, with a special eye towards the ongoing influence of iOS.

Doesn't get much better….

A new Siracusa review is an event almost unto itself. John shows everyone how an OS should be ripped apart and examined. Plus he generously peppers his reviews with his wry dry wit and copious screenshots and inside jokes.

I eagerly await every release with a nice single malt and some light jazz.


I have bought several eBooks and iBooks in an effort to learn MAC OS. So far, the majority, like this one talk in general about the changes in Mavericks and the new features without ever getting down to telling you exactly how to do anything. It will be refreshing when I get to an ebook or ibook that actuallly tells me how to get something done. like: FIRST DO THIS, THEN…..

nothing better

Siracusa does it again.
