“Mavericks is a surf beach in California, and the operating system that takes its name definitely represents a new wave in Mac software, even though it isn’t a drastic change from OS X 10.8,” Darrell Etherington writes for TechCrunch.
“The changes Apple has made are for the better, though, and since it’s free, there’s no reason not to take advantage of all that great new stuff,” Etherington writes. “[Bottom line] Mavericks is free and Mavericks is very good.”
Etherington writes, “Apple has really turned the business of desktop software on its head with this update, and there’s no reason not to update – in fact, there’s every reason to make the software change as soon as you can. Even if you’re not particularly drawn by any single new big feature, everyone will find something to love among all the little changes Apple has baked into the 10th and latest iteration of OS X.”
