Verdict: 4 stars

Features introduced with Mavericks included support for multiple displays, new apps, tags and notifications. It was also the first Mac operating system update to be made available for free and even added another hour of battery life to existing hardware.
Verdict: 5 stars
This fixed many of the problems which plagued the original release - making it a necessity rather than a luxury. Updates include allowing users to boot straight to desktop and carry out a universal searches. Best of all it is free to download.
