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.

Actually, Apple uses their own implementation called SMBX, since they don't like GPL3


It has nothing to do with liking or disliking GPL3 (liking/disliking implies an emotion based reason rather than technical) but the fact that Apple wanted to do one thing but the licence said that they couldn't thus they kept with the GPL2 version till their in house implementation could replace it. Unless you're advocating that Apple should break licenses to keep people like you happy then they made the right move - it also allows them to talk directly to Microsoft and possibly share code which hopefully will translate into a better implementation.
