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.

In addition to tabbed browsing...

Apple's new 'Sea Lion' looks great!! It's nice to see Apple implementing lots of little touches that seem superficial but are actually quite useful. I'd like to welcome Apple's Finder to the world of tabbed Windows. Linux Window managers have had this feature for ages now. I cannot fathom why Microsoft has never implemented tabbed browsing in Windows explorer!! Another feature lacking in explorer is the ability to print directory listings. Ah well, maybe with Windows 9...

You already have it, though why the hell it's hidden as it is blows my mind. Copy as you normally would, then move (hold down the option key while selecting paste from the menu, or else press cmd+option+v). Voila, cut and paste. Not many seem to know this little trick, and why Apple leaves a Cut item in the menu when it does nothing is beyond me and only adds to the confusion surrounding this.
As a side tip, holding down the option key in menus can give you hidden items in a lot of places. Explore your favorite apps' menus with the option key down, and you might be surprised what you find.

I would prefer having my folders always closed and in the top of the finder (à la Windows Explorer).

The "quality" of keep the folders expanded as the last time we use it is very awful to me.
