Indeed it does! It's clear that the Verge announcement was under a hell of an NDA for this one. Looks to be a very good upgrade to OS X. Looking forward to getting home and getting the preview!

Ah come on :/ I stay home from work to get working on a new game and Apple does this? Now I have to resist downloading and installing it :(

Edit: AH! the dev center is down...... hopefully I can get back in "working" mode and just keep working (not likely)

So far from what I have seen, I don't think this would cause Windows team to lose any sleep.

Its just an an upgrade, despite what many analysts are calling it, such as those at Bloomberg. Calling it 'Apple's answer to Windows 8'.

It certainly is not.

So that's there new features? It does not inspire me to upgrade from Lion, is just Lion with messaging services. I already have an iPhone 4s, I don't need more messaging apps.

It could be a free upgrade? or just the $19 upgrade

Didn't except this. Nothing much in there that is of a great deal of interest for me so far, except for the Notification Centre.

All i do know is it looks like they're already running out of names. Leopard -> Snow Leopard, Lion -> Mountain Lion.

Although considering that Puma, Panther and Mountain Lion are essentially the same cat, they'll have to call 10.9 OS X Cougar. Rawwwr.
