Mac OS X "OS X 10.9, which is internally codenamed 'Cabernet', will focus on various 'power-user' enhancements and take core features from iOS, according to our sources. Unlike operating system updates such as OS X Leopard and OS X Lion, OS X 10.9 will likely not be an overhauled approach to how the operating system feels and functions." Features for power users and features from iOS? Seems like an oxymoron. Still, if they manage to finally fix the Finder and Spaces, I'll be happy.

And what precisely makes OSX user a power user, if I may ask?
Ability to drag icons around? or maybe deep knowledge of the few simple keyboard shortcuts? tools?
I don't want to diminish people's ability to have in-depth knowledge about computers. But let's be honest here - most OSX/iOS users are clueless. And that's how it should be. OSX/iOS should be simple and dumbed down, so even the most clueless users have their way through it when they need to accomplish important task on time.
