Apple has done something it hasn’t done before with a major release of OS X, announcing today during its iPad event that it will release OS X Mavericks, the latest version of its desktop OS, later today for free to all users.

 

Mavericks is available starting today for iMac and MacBook Pros from 2007 or later, 2008 MacBook Air, MacBook, and Mac Pro or later, and the 2009 Mac mini or later.

I already have the GM, so it's not appearing as an update for my main machine. The other two hacks i have reported the update, but since they have unsupported hardware, i'll wait for a custom kernel. Two questions:

 

1) By downloading Mavericks from the App Store, the update proceeds immediately after the download, like other software updates, or can we store the installer and update when see fit?

 

2) Is it probable Apple makes it available as a "combo" upgrade (just like the combo update) directly from the support site?

 

 

All the best!

EDIT. yes, it says mavericks is already installed and if i want to download the installer i should press continue...

Where is the trick?
The priest gave this penance to them to atone their sins?
