Let me list out the title phrases from that article.
- Even this early, Mavericks is fast and stable. (What do you mean by early? They released it. Oh wait the review is from June, on today's front page)
- Mavericks is worth the upgrade for in-notification replies alone (Sure who can live without in-notification replies)
- Using multiple displays works like it always should have (This is OS 'X' means 10th major version, it should)
- Nearly everything that needed fixing has been tended to (This is just scary statement)
So what I learned after reading this is, Apple lied about 200+ features. I am back to where I was.
And this is different from Microsoft how?
I have Apple devices and all flavors of Windows. Apple does some things better and some worse than MS. I just never drank the cool-aid from either place. I seem to cuss Windows (Microsoft) more but hey, I support it at work.
Don't know that ya have to be fan-boy to like something
I guess it takes something that you enjoy done well.
For example I used to be a NeXTSTeP fan, it was awesome!!!
Then they were bought by apple and took 2 years to release .. OS9, meh... (that was back in the days)
Meanwhile Microsoft released .NET! Ho.... it's when I become MS fan, .NET is awesome!
(Mmm... I should think of that, wanting to like WinRT now, what is wrong with me? Have I been C++ brain washed?)
As for Apple fan, I guessed they loved apple when it had first decent phone and tablets?
As for Google, maybe people loved it when it introduce first decent and affordable phone?
I guess it's all about having to justify your badly substantiated choice.
Why can't people just say that they prefer the UI.
Coincidentally that's my reason for not upgrading to Windows8. Having to use all programs in fullscreen mode on a PC is a no go to me.
(Hey MS people, repeat after me: A PC is not a tablet, A PC is not a tablet, A PC is not a tablet...)
Be excellent to each other. And... PARTY ON, DUDES!
I've been checking all over the net with conflicting results.
It's one of the most horrifically invasive things I've ever had to actually live with (for now). The Sc^mbags (at Chevy dealer) didn't tell me it can't really be turned off. They, GM, and OnStar (owned by GM) will not do it and won't say what will happen if its unplugged/de-antennaed/etc.
I was wondering about a foil hat for my vehicle (mine is too small).
Seriously, though. Does anyone have experience with a factory installed system?

Instructions for getting rid of OnStar:
0. Drive your car to the nearest dealer of preferred non-GM brand.
1. Pick a car on their lot, any will do.
2. Drive away in your new car and wave at your GM as you drive off.
