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.

RE[5]: OpenGL & filesystem

Well, that's a pretty vague retort, if you don't mind me saying. What is it you expect is should be doing that it doesn't?

It journals, it has case sensitivity, it stores metadata (has the notion of forks), includes ACL's and UNIX permissions. It does tick a lot of boxes. Spotlight was also developed by a team containing Dominic Giampaolo, who was part of the engineering team that created the BFS for BeOS. Fairly sure he still works for Apple in the Filesystems division also.

But you obviously believe something is missing, and I'm genuinely intrigued as to what that is?
