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.

Ironically, the MAC OS in the early 90s handled multiple monitors much more elegantly than windows did at the time. The main drawback was always the menubar being tied to the primary screen. I found an app called multimode that got around that by duplicating the menu on another monitor.

When they added full screen apps, they bizarrely made any other screens you used go to a useless linen texture wasting however many monitors you had attached. As a result I never used the full screen mode.

I am glad that they have finally decided to fix both of these things this in 10.9

that app is actualy called multimon... OSX's spell checker and I don't like each other much.
