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.

Thanks for the explanation. That may be actually true.

However, I didn't really talk about third-party tools that people use. These may make them power users, most certainly. But the base OS? is it really that hard to understand ins and outs of iOS/OSX?

I mean, come on ... the point I made was the exact the point Apple Developers and spokes persons make all the time - they just sugarcoat it by saying that it's all about simplicity. I added, that this simplicity is mostly for the **good** of the "clueless" [that means: "not computer person"] users.

You know, it's funny how people like to bash everyone who happens to have some other opinion [even if the intentions were actually good].
Nobody's trying to convince anyone that OS X is better/worse than OS Y. We were just talking about difficultiveness/intuitiveness of the system. At least that's what I though, right before some people decided to come up with my alleged "bad past" [not mentioning the fact that I have no "bad past". I'm just a man who comments on some topics from time to time, just like all of you. And yes, I am standing strong for software freedom, just like you don't care about it that much, standing strong for other things].

People ... *sigh*
