Got Mavericks installed on the MBP. Everything works so far, including the Office suite, which is what I was particularly worried about because I use it every day. I haven't had any problems at all--but then I've been using it for all of five minutes, so who knows. Like Curtis said, though, everything seems a whole lot faster than before. Safari is super fast. I know--the new OS placebo effect. But that's ok with me too.

I do believe Safari's memory management is finally under control. It's not sucking up the ram as much, with multiple tabs open.

Have fun!

I keep the 'dock' on the left and that grayish opaque 'dock strip' is back.
I forgot what I had before that made it disappear but that ugly looking 'strip' is back. eek

In Terminal;

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES

then;

killall Dock (remember the Cap D)

to bring it back to stock;

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO

Then another killall Dock.

Doesn't seem to work in OS X 10.9 anymore but worked in OS X 10.8. Oh well!

2D;

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -integer 1

default setting;

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass

Don't forget to killall Dock after running either one

Got it on the MP now--same story. Everything copacetic. The odd thing is that the installer deleted the old QuickTime 7 that I have around because I've enabled the pro editing capabilities, which I use all the time for a quick cut and paste. But I restored it from Time Machine, and it's as good as ever.

The only recurring PIA I'm finding so far is that when I launch Mail, it asks for my iCloud password. Probably has to do with the User account issue I encountered during the final install/set-up process. I'll have to take a closer look at the prefs and settings to see wassup.

Last installation done. The MBA buzzing along. I know Steve had a hard time with the update, but three computers, three home-runs over here in PA. And the iWork suite updated for free on all three. 'Salright!

Well, I'm back to 10.8.5 for the time being. When the incompatible apps have been brought up to par and my workload is less intense, I'll try again. I lost way too many hours btwn Tuesday and yesterday. Meh...
