    I cannot think of any time in history, outside of today, where an Apple Demo failed on stage.. yes, it ended up working, but that really uncomfortable lag when the car thing didn't respond was wow. OSX Mavericks.

    The Adoption rate comparison to Windows was funny :) "Only 10% adopted Windows 8" , which, 10%=larger than the entire installed Mac user base, so not really a comparison

    I'm hoping they roll out some actually hardware, because so far, I'm not seeing much impressive. "tag support in finder" We just finished getting rid of tagging systems for heuristics elsewhere (Linux) is this suddenly in again?

    OpenGL4 isn't new anywhere else; multi-monitor support is neat, but again, everyone else does it too..

    I'm not seeing revolution here. I'm waiting for a new piece of hardware: MacPro or iPad or something :)

    Tim Stevens (Engadget) notes this:
    Ok.. and there are performance benefits, but apps that use a lot of clipboard/memory space already are going to need some super high memory macs to pull this feat off.. I'm thinking everyone using Premiere, etc.. I wonder if this is something that is going to be app by app support

    Can't say I'm a fan of the first iteration in the naming convention. It's supposed to refer to a surfing locale (which I've never heard of), but I immediately think of a basketball team or the McCain/Palin campaign.

    Yeah, I tended to immediately think of Sarah Palin also.

    So far, I'm not seeing much that makes me go "holy cow".. but something might break out here.. a lot of this seems like catchup stuff

    I am impressed. Love the new maps app.

    Just wish there was another overhaul of MAIL. Still the least inspiring app on the Mac.

    I think these are all decent upgrades that need to happen; just nothing earth shattering.

    Mavericks will be released "late fall".. so, October or so, I guess. I was kind of expecting after all this demo for them to ship today

    Everything external. Boots and runs off internal PCI-E Flash drive, Thunderbolt2 for all external based devices... 4K support, dual AMD FireGL Controllers for video

    4 USB 3.0, 6 rear thunderbolt.. it is TINY, about 1/4 the size of MacPro now.. cannot be internally expanded.. a Q4 release (not released today, but by the end of the year)

    OK, the Mac Pro is kind of nuts in terms of the size reduction from the longstanding design.

    It is very bold; but it's cylinder design makes me think of an aluminum trash can.

    The bigger concern is that the cost to add all items externally will be far greater than just slipping in a bare SATA drive, etc.. you're going to need a SATA Drive + a Thunderbolt enclosure + a thunderbolt cable (or USB3)

    But it is the most revolutionary thing they've shown today; we'll know more when it ships in 6 months ;)

    Will be manufactured in the USA.
