I know enough about the whole Apple soap opera and their push of squeezing people for more money to buy newer systems and making still good and relevant programs obsolete, i. When I used I only wish that Even ChronoSync is total garbage after extensively testing it against like 4 other backup software options.
My last bit of advice, if on This is an article aimed at users who are still running OS X Lion, which is buggy and poorly implemented with weird feature revisions that have been since walked back. Just recently compiled the java runtime myself to keep it up to date, and have been living on the libraries provided by macports for a while now, since Fink has stopped supporting Oh, by the way, when I finally have to pull the plug on I have debian linux fully up-to-date installed on this in preparation for the day.
My iMac is running Lion I am having a problem with updating java, though. Could you pass on any articles or such which can help me compile my java runtime?

Great comment and very inspiring. And I really resent the inevitable, yet somehow always unexpected costly loss of support for other apps. Anyone coming with us?!! The audio from my firewire sound card glitches at every available opportunity. Then, continue following the on-screen prompts to complete the process.

Everything works fine, reliable and very fast. Advice to upgrade to Mavericks is stupid Bullsquid!!!
Only one thing I miss from Yosemite are iCloud Drive. But if Apple think to blackmail me with this, F.. On Mavericks Apple killer Quicklook. On Yes, 3rd party plugins like Perian needed. But on Mavericks not even the older QT videos can be played. User friendly? Why do you publish such a recommendation? If you read the article you will see exactly why upgrading to Mavericks makes sense if you are running Lion.
What to know before you install
I upgraded my Macbook from Lion to Mavericks, Big mistake! Cause now it has major connection issues and print driver issues. Expect to lose the ability to connect to your printer via wifi if its connected to another computer that has a different OS other than Mavericks installed. Personally I believe its a communication issue. I can see the printer on the network, but it makes no connection. It drops then says unable to connect at this time. Only after countless searches was I able to find out that Mavericks uses SMB2 technology now to connect by default to other computers on network.
If you want to connect from the Leopard installed G5 to Mavericks, forget about it! No one knows how! Because its a hit or miss for some! ANd by the way…many people are experiencing dropped connections with Mavericks! So save yourselves the headache until they fix these bugs which are major! I recommend to stick with the version you have now till they fix Mavericks…it has issues which previous versions did not have quite honestly! My one complaint about upgrading is the loss of the mosaic option in the screen saver. It is one of the neatest features in Lion and Snow Leopard, almost an app in and of itself, and there are many in the support forums who apparently have the same sentiment.
There were workarounds to making it work in Mountain Lion but those options were eliminated apparently in Mavericks. Not of the reasons for its discontinuation, but if anyone else agrees, please let Apple HQ know. Firefox has had them separate for how long, I wonder? Emails have the CC recipients in gray, so I have to strain to see who all got the message. The URLs in Safari are gray after the primary web address, but in my job, I need information beyond the primary web address, which requires more eye strain because of the gray.
So many on here are saying Lion was the worst Mac OS X ever, but I always thought that about Leopard, which was a space hog and very s-l-o-w. I have been pleased with Lion. They were just removed. If you decide to ignore my warning though. I wish I could agree with you but I found the upgrade to Mavericks a big mistake.
And I see no significant benefits to Mavericks over Lion. I updated to Mavericks and could not use my scanner or my printers. I had to go back to Mountain Lion. Has this issue been resolved?
Interesting to read all the hate about Lion. Turned out the temporary Mountain Lion was unnecessary. I have generally been an early adopter of new operating systems. But I am running Lion was unequivocally a disaster. Lion is much better, but imagine a whole operating system devoted to fixing the bugs and poor choices of the previous system.
But there are no compelling features that make me want to switch. And then Mavericks is buggy again. Instead of coming out with a new operating system every year where the odd-numbered versions are disasters that get fixed by the next update, why not just do one GOOD, stable operating system every two years? Far better than rushing out buggy crap.

In fact, shortly after the update, I received a piece of mail that was incorrectly labeled as spam. But it had become invisible. Frankly, I wish I had never installed Mavericks. My mac is always up to date. If anything, Mountain Lion was the worst for me. Lion came preinstalled on my mid white MacBook with zero problems. I ran into trouble with the Mountain Lion update with terrible responsiveness even after a clean install.
I use two Gmail accounts on my mac, one Yahoo and one iCloud. No issues here. They were what I purchased for each kid as they left for college. I do regular updates not only on my OS but also all my apps to keep everything running smoothly. I also have Time Machine automatically back up to a connected external LeCie hard drive. I just hope that happens before my planned replacement of both my machines in September or October of this year.
Thanks to one and all for posting, it made my decision incredibly easy. About the Lion OS, I stopped using it moment Not worth it. If the prices of Mac Pros drop when the new ones get on the market I may shop for an older one that is able to move to Mavericks. The most simple solution is by Tiamo MacRumors. I am stuck on Lion because neither Mountain Lion or Mavericks will install on my hardware. No amount of exhortations will help me.
If and when Apple releases a new MacMini I will probably upgrade. The 3D graphics drivers in Mavericks seem less stable than the ones in Mountain Lion. Games like Minecraft, WoW, etc.

Reverted back to Mountain Lion and the crashes stopped. I work at a Mac service center. I was noticing a pattern of people who upgraded to Mavericks on pre Macs of all types. Some upgrading from Of course most did not have backups.
Slowness, sluggish, crashes, etc, all are gone after a clean install. Or if you buy a brand new Mac with it preinstalled you will see this too. The only exception is the Mail problems, which are currently irreparable without running beta software. Finder is quite slow, now, especially for Save As operations and for showing the thumbnails of photos in a folder.
