Mac OS X

Apple has released OS X 10.9 Mavericks - for free - so it's that time again: John Siracusa's excellent OS X review.

According to Apple, Mavericks has a dual focus. Its first and most important goal is to extend battery life and improve responsiveness. Secondarily, Mavericks aims to add functionality that will appeal to "power users" (Apple's words), a group that may be feeling neglected after enduring two releases of OS X playing iOS dress-up.

Is that enough for Mavericks to live up to its major-release version number and to kick off the next phase of OS X's life? Let's find out.

The two issues are separate.

You can still architect yoru enterprise to be minimally dependent on any particular brand or version - and retain agility to change.

And at the same time have PCI compliance, or compliance to whatever intelligent security or regulatory framework you need to.

No intelligent security/regulatory framework requires you to be locked into a specific brand or technology version and be entagled in a mess of dependencies limiting any kind of cost-effetivce agility.

I repeat - it is not the intention of security or other regaulation to tie your technology in knots.

I didn't mention BYOD, no-one is advocating zero-management for enterprise.

This is the same kind of "lazy defeatist" mentality I see too often in "the enterpise industry".
