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.

It's the XXI century, support for case sensitivity has been a given for 2 to 3 decades. And yet, it is an after thought in HFS+'s implementation, to the point that some applications still can't function on a case sensitive HFS+ volume in 2013. That is sad. Even sadder that Apple still touts "case sensitivity" as a major feature for their "most advanced OS on earth."

For a more detailed take on the issue, I will refer to Syracusa's review on ars technica:

There is a reason why the Xserves and OSX as a server were laughed out of the marketplace.
