Wow. What an ignorant statement.

Comparing the feature changes of OS X 10.X upgrades to what are essentially bundled compilations of previous security updates is ludicrous.

Be gentle with the MSFT devotees. This hasn't been a good week for them. Mavericks makes Windows 8 look like it was designed by someone who assumes the whole world will be using it on a Surface tablet; and on top of that they just realised that the new Surface itself looks like a boat anchor next to the new iPad. Not to mention, they were really really really hoping that Apple would start selling a keyboard cover so they could say that MSFT did something first, for once. ;)
