Mavericks

Please tell me this isn't happening.

Please tell me Apple isn't going back to its early 90s post-Jobs form. Now that Jobs is definitively post.

Before you tell me that, can you tell me why I have two folders called Hotmail in Mail?

Why I can't read half the PDFs I have?

Why the autofill function in Word is now just a bunch of symbols?

Why Filemaker Pro took five minutes to load?

And on and on and on and on.

That's awful. I haven't experienced any of those issues (except the filemaker pro took a long time to load). As a matter of fact, the switch to mavericks was the smoothest OS upgrade in my life. I have a few minor quibbles, but I also have noticeably improved battery life, and a few other things I use. What you are describing was what I feared, but thankfully didn't happen to me.

Good luck.

what else can be expected of proprietary operating systems?

proprietary operating systems are not your friend.

i'd HIGHLY recommend learning about gnu/linux and trying to move all your computing onto a free operating system such as Debian.

Filemaker Pro 12 works with Mavericks. Versions below that number are untested and may or may not work. http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12643/~/filemaker-11-and-earlier-versions%2C-os-x-mavericks-compatibility
