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.

Timer coalescing

I don't know enough about the technical details to know if this fear is in any way grounded, but wouldn't timer coalescing result in a slight latency on user actions?
Clock speed increases would presumably hide this over time, but can someone with a better technical understanding of the impact of timer coalescing comment on the likelihood of this being at all user-perceptible?
