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.

Calling case sensitivity an after thought for Apple is unfair. Apple specifically pursued a system that was, wisely for their audience, case-insensitive. Apple specifically pursued supporting a system that preserved that case insensitivity while supporting case-insensitive file systems. The Backward compatibility of HFS(+) to support 30 years of Mac-formatted drives is something they usually get criticized for not doing.

You can spin a crappy design and implementation as a "feature" all you want.
