MacObserver.com reports that Apple has released the “Golden Master” on OSX 10.9 “Mavericks” to developers. A golden master release means that the next version of OSX is imminent… possibly in the next few days or weeks. More than likely before the month is out.
If you haven’t purchased a copy of “Mountain Lion” (Mac OSX 10.8), now is definitely the time to do it. Head over to the Mac App store and get Mountain Lion before it disappears.
After using Mountain Lion for several weeks I can say that this release is quite stable and usable. Apple has had a year to perfect it.
Mavericks will be a new ball game, and while it will probably work just fine on most modern Macs, like any new OSX release 10.9 will probably have its share of teething problems. I am not upgrading until later…. much later.
