    I looked at the thread, read "Mavericks" and expected Mega Man. Then I saw the bigger picture and I was really disappointed. :(

    :P

    Especially with the big old X in the image the OP posted. Dang.

    I have a macbook pro, but its not getting updates past 10.6.8. Snow leopard was the best.

    To each his own. It (was in 2008) one of the best laptops on the market, spec wise, and runs just like the day I got it. Had to reinstall windows a few times though :bortz:

    ...you mean poorly? :tpi:
    Ah, that's why it's not poopie. :rofl2:

    I kid, I kid - Apple does release quality hardware, it's just terribly overpriced. ;)

    Bring the rope - I'm not paying for the overpriced Apple brand and I know you won't wear anything else. :angry:

    I agree. Which is why I havent bought another one :P And because it is old and runs just fine on Snow Leopard, I have no reason to compromise its performance for bloated Maverick.

    One of the things I dislike the most are that they include important things like driver updates (!) in numbered releases, so people have to buy new versions of the OS in order to update their drivers. It's why FEZ didn't work on certain versions of OSX when it launched (not sure about now). It required certain Intel HD drivers or higher because they added OpenGL3 support or something, and the drivers were only updatable by purchasing the latest OSX version.

    There itself.
    Ever since updating, my MacBook Pro does not enter Sleep Mode when the Power button is pressed like before (one press and the screen black-out and enters Sleep Mode). Is it just with my MacBook Pro or does it have something to do with this update or do I have to change something in the Settings?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    [Edit] Figured it out now. The old 'tap to sleep' does not work anymore with this update. To put your Mac to Sleep, press and hold the power button for 1 sec and release. Ta-da! The screen blacks out and goes to sleep. Weired that I didn't see this change mentioned anywhere...

    Only thing is that OS X upgrades are free since 10.9. But otherwise you are correct. Windows has the same issue with direct x, but so far that hasn't caused problems to gamers since so few games use the latest DX.
