Just wondering if anyone here plans on installing OS X 9. I have iOS7 installed and loving it, will look at OS X 10.9 tonight, looking at installing it onto a USB Drive, dont think its ready for main use.

You mean, OSX 10.9? - OSX 9 is very old.

He probably does mean OS 10.9, since OSX 9 doesn't exist and never has.

I'll certainly upgrade my Macs when I can, and my iPad as well. :)

If I didn't use my Mac for work I would. I can take or leave most of the new features, but tagging would be really useful for me, and I'm interested in the changes of how it handles memory.

When it's out for real though, of course.

Installed it yesterday. I’m very pleased so far! I’m using it on a rMBP 15" and battery life is considerably better (I won a big ~1hour), feels snappier. The new login screen is beautiful, the Finder is pretty good too with its tabs and tags.

I wouldn’t install it on a work machine, but honestly it feels more stand stable enough to be used at home. In fact I didn’t encountered any major bugs so far.

If you guy wanna see something in particular, just ask me, I’ll post some screenshots.

It doesn't from what I've seen. Apple modified the installer.

I'll be waiting until it's final to install OS X 10.9. For the time being Mountain Lion does the job just fine.

I won't. I just went to the site to see their advertised features and none of them interest me.

Finally got it installed on my PC, was running 10.8.4 prior. I have to say my boot speed at least halved itself after a fresh install.

So far not many issues have cropped up so I'm happy.
