This is a very cool new feature:

 

Menu search

 

WTF? That's been around for AGES? (It's existed since at least 2009, but more likely around 2006 or so).

 

I have to lol at some of the comments. Spotlight was a "wow" moment when it launched. It's just common now, but that's because we all forget about context pretty often when considering things int he past. When Spotlight launched, there wasn't even Vista out.

There's always been a search, but I don't remember previous versions opening up menus and giving you visual cues?

I, er, well, yeah. Didn't know about that one!! (Just tried it on Mavericks, and yesh, you're right!)

I never use spotlight though, I probably should.

It does in 10.7. I'm 90% sure it did in 10.6, and it's likely it did 10.5.

It's a great feature, one of the absolute golden first things I show a new mac user. It makes your life so much easier when you start using a new program!

Heh, cool.  This would have been a useful thing to know about when I was teaching myself Maya...

I'll wait for a bit. My SSD (Samsung 840 Evo) needs flashing, and I'm having issues with games in OS X (laptop will lock up or restart), so want to get that all sorted before I upgrade. Plus that'll hopefully allow some bugs in the new OS to be fixed

I've been running it on my Late 2011 MBP and Early 2009 iMac since Friday morning. Performance is fine, I can't see any difference between this and Mavericks for day to day tasks.

Unfortunately I don't presently use an iPhone, so I can't make use of all the new "seamless" workflow goodies.

One thing that bothers me is the new Finder icon. It looks dumb.

As someone who literally grew up using nothing but OS 8~9.*, Id love a trip down memory lane;

do you ever wish for a 'classic' theme?
