Mac OS X The third and final WWDC product I want to talk about is - of course - OS X 10.9 Mavericks. While iOS 7 was clearly the focus of this year's WWDC, its venerable desktop counterpart certainly wasn't left behind. Apple announced OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the first OS X release not to carry the name of a big cat.

i trust NTFS more still (apart from the king which is ZFS).

I don't. When NTFS crashes it can be far more subtle, let's say a cluster bitmap corruption (i.e. the bit that tells the filesystem what space is used and what is free). Ever seen that? It looks, on the users' end, like files are randomly disappearing as they're being erased by new files without the os realizing it. Yes you can repair it, but you can't get the files that were replaced back again unless you have a backup, and if you're not watching it closely you may not notice this right away. It's nasty. At least when most other filesystems crash you know it and in some of them, like the ext? filesystems and zfs, it is self-correcting as there are multiple copies of the superblock and inconsistencies are checked against them.
