Definitely or at least something that gives more control to the end user over the power management of the drive so that there isn't a massive performance hit of the drive having to spin and up down - maybe better disk management tools such as the ability to verify and repair disks.

At this point of our era, I don't think ground-breaking OS updates will ever exists anymore.


And IMHO I'd sooner not see massive ground-breakding OS changes either - I'd prefer measured well tested features being added so that a stronger focus is on fit and finish rather than getting more notches on the OS feature bedpost.

Needs more btrfs.

Edit: NTFS write support would be nice too, if they're licensing exFAT for SDXC support then why not for NTFS?

Ground-breaking anything is pretty much not acceptable - in or out of Apple OSes. What seems to be preferred is tinkering at the edges, as opposed to revolutionary. Ice Cream Sandwich is a fusion basically of the Android phone and tablet code bases, and was planned - Lion. and to an extent, even Mountain Lion, nearly became LaughingStock One and LaughingStock Too (despite the surprise acceptance of both outside of Mac hardware faithful), and look at how much Windows 8 is being attacked (mostly for being too different from Windows 7). What works is *improved old* - not much new, at least when it comes to software.

I will not buy an Apple computer for a long time after a couple of really bad experiences. However I miss so bleeing much OS X

I just don't like Windows feel, specially it's GUI.

A macbook pro with a faulty videocard, fried in two months, Apple kindly replaced it... the replacement lasted a week.

An impressive iMac 27 inch... with a faulty motherboard. Apple kindly replaced the mb... but took two months... and when the machine finally arrived it was broken after 15 frigging minutes!

I see, that's pretty bad.

I had a similar experience with an HP laptop (5 motherboard replacements, various issues including the video card, twice) so I'll never buy an HP laptop ever again.

Ouch, yeah, that'd put anybody off.

If you really really want OS X, you could go down the hackintosh route.

Ah HP! Another brand I will not trust anytime soon.

I still rely heavily on my iPad mini and my iPhone. While my computer experience have been flaky Apple gadgets have been rock solid for me.

Now I use a Lenovo. Most reliable laptop I've ever used along with my (ironically) work's Macbook Air.

Believe me, I thought about it, for quite a long time. Even did some research about kext injector and so on. However it's too much trouble.

I would like to see improvements made to Finder such as displaying transfer speed, pausing transfers, prioritizing transfers when you have multiple going on, etc. Tabbed browsing out of the box would be nice too -- I have that covered for now with TotalFinder.

What I would like to see in Finder is, when you are in list view, make it so that the last item in the list view is nothing.
This way you can right click in this empty space and create a new folder, rather than having to go through the menus on top. This is one of my top 25 Mac OS X annoyances.

On 9 to 5 Mac there was an article about OS X 10.9 being largely targeted at power users, including a redesigned Finder. Seems like an incredibly smart move considering how many people are unhappy with Windows 8.

The hackintosh route is a lot easier than you think; just go with one of the recommended builds and you're all set. I used mutibeast to do all the major configurations, and kextbeast to add voodoo audio, and ssd trim support. I did do a decent bit of reading through the various forums here and there, but I successfully build a core 2 duo P45 based 10.6 - snow leopard and a newer i3 b75m based 10.8.3 ML system (the one I mainly use now).
