    for all macs dating back to 2007 in a single step upgrade. :cheer:


    edit: available for download today!

    On Tuesday in San Francisco, Apple announced that one of its most anticipated new products, the latest version of OS X, will be available as a free download for old and new computers alike going back to 2007.


    OS X Mavericks, the first operating system for Mac computers not named after a big cat, can be downloaded for free starting on Tuesday.

    i haven't installed it yet. i decided i'd better make a time machine backup of my current setup to an external hd first. at the rate it's backing up right now (first backup) it'll take a week to finish. then i'll install mavericks. anyone here running it yet? thoughts?
