After using it for some time, I discovered that it was a mistake! The thing I hate the most is the system lag- applications take forever to start, and I don,t like the new colors. If there was any way to go back to snow leopard, I would! I moved over from the PC world in , and it was the best thing I ever did to enhance my efficiency and enjoyment when using the computer science-related work.

I'm in the same boat. I don't get why they've completely removed Mavericks. Yosemite seems to be the only game in town, and until it plays nicely with Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, I won't be updating.

Besides, I've heard that Yosemite makes your computer run slowly. The first time I spoke to them about getting Mavericks the tech told me to wipe my hard drive clean and then install Mavericks 9. This didn't sound at all Kosher to me, and luckily I didn't take her advice. I've contacted apple support on this subject, and the representative was the most knowledgeable human being ever.
