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.

And what precisely makes OSX user a power user, if I may ask?


Same things that makes Windows or Linux power users: the inability to understand their own lack of knowledge, thinking they're God's gift to personal computing. And they have the wildly inaccurate forum posts to back it up.

I beg to differ. Things are not as simple.
You have people who use their computer more or less only for web browsing, e-mail, facebook and Skype. They are the vast majority and definitely not 'power users'.
And then you have those that do some heavy duty productive work. It is in many cases rather complex, involves juggling different file formats, having multiple files open at the same time in different windows etc. These have been left mostly in the cold in recent years by a new generation of software designers at the big vendors who were focused on winning the race on 'mobile' and 'social'.
