The last time I updated I had to jump through a few hoops to be able to continue printing with my Epson 3880, anyone done the update (it is a Free update) yet? Have any problems?

Updated to Mavericks plus all of iWorks and iLife apps without any problem. Also updated iPhone and iPhad to 7.0.3 to support Mavericks. Again, no problems.

I 'm one who thinks you should wait a few weeks so all the kinks are worked out . Usually at the roll out there are a few kinks

I updated as well, no problems at all. I see no reason to wait for kinks to work out, Apple typically has the kinks worked out before they release anything, unlike android and windows!

I usually wait a while, I'm tempted to upgrade...

any early adopters care to chime in on the use of:

Lightroom 5
Adobe CS6
Quickbooks 2013

I have been running Mavericks under the developer preview (running the golden master) for 3 weeks now.

Really, no issues. I did the upgrade, not a clean install. It was very painless...

I have one tiny bug, everyonce in a while after restoring from sleep (this is on a 15" MBP), the dock will move from my primary display to the secondary. Not sure why that is happening.

I am running Lightroom 5, no issues.

I think these updates these days are much more incremental than in years past, where every few years you'd have this massive upgrade that breaks everything.

I also run a lot of sound software, Ableton, Maschine, various VST's, no issues thus far or in my soundcard drivers.

Glad this thread is already here. I was gonna ask the same question. I have some older software that I'm worried about. I'm still on CS4 and my printer is an Epson R1900. Anybody know if Mavericks will go back that far?

I don't think it matters.

If you have an extra external disk floating around, pick up a copy of Carbon Copy Cloner (or super-duper, these days I use Carbon Copy Cloner).

Make a full clone of your machine to the external first. Then upgrade.

If you find it not working well for you, you can just boot the external disk and restore the clone back to the system disk.

That's a good idea. Thanks

I currently back up to my external using Time Machine. Is that the same idea or would CCC be better still? Thanks for the help.

CCC or SuperDuper let you create a bootable complete copy of your HD, TimeMachine let's you go back in time. Fine if the machine still works, useless if the machine got completely screwed up. I do both, SuperDuper every once in a while and TM all the time.

Bootable copy is also a life saver if your internal HD dies, which it will eventually. Switch it out, seed from your copy and you have the same machine back in no time.

As for the upgrade, did it yesterday with no issues at all.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:
