Mac OS X

Apple has released OS X 10.9 Mavericks - for free - so it's that time again: John Siracusa's excellent OS X review.

According to Apple, Mavericks has a dual focus. Its first and most important goal is to extend battery life and improve responsiveness. Secondarily, Mavericks aims to add functionality that will appeal to "power users" (Apple's words), a group that may be feeling neglected after enduring two releases of OS X playing iOS dress-up.

Is that enough for Mavericks to live up to its major-release version number and to kick off the next phase of OS X's life? Let's find out.

Funnily enought we are stopping the use of Windows Server in 2014. Nine months ago we were audited by the BSA and despite ordering the part numbers recommended by MS themsemves we were found to be using Server with the wrong licenses. We didn't get fined because we had followed the advice from Microsoft.

The bosses said 'Enough' and we are agressively moving everything from Windows to RHEL. Thankfully the middleware product we use runs on both.

For us, 2014 will be the year of Linux in the Datacentre.
