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.

Not sure what i expect or what i want from MacOSX, ML gave me Expose back which was my biggest annoyance with Lion.

I would like a new Filesystem, i had a couple of file system crashes in Leopard and Snow leopard, however i haven't had one in Lion or in Mountain Lion, so i don't know if the issues i had have been resolved and HFS+ is any better. It has put me off HFS+ for a bit.

I agree with other posters that ZFS would be too heavy for a client OS, which is a shame as i would love to have something as powerful as ZFS and not have to worry about silent corruption, i could live without dedup, snapshots and compression. (I would use timemachine over snapshots), if it meant a more lean Filesystem.

Apart from that i don't mind finder, ive never really had a problem with it. The only ones i had was no option to cut and paste in finder, that was fixed and merging folders which couldn't be done before and has been fixed in ML (i.e. you couldn't copy a folder with the same name on top of another folder without it deleting the original folder).

I would like to see all the skeumorphic stuff removed, i used to like the calendar and contacts but they look really crap/tacky.

The rest of the built in apps work well for me, Mail, safari etc..

Personally if i had the choice i would have liked apple to have spent some time on the iLife stuff like iPhoto as i like to use this to store my everyday photos i sync with my phone (other photographic work is done in aperture). iPhone and a lot of the iLife apps are old, sluggish and need a rethinking in some areas (sharing in iPhoto is absolutely terrible).
