Apple Releases Mavericks, free

It was a shocking news for me too when today it was announced in the October 2013 Apple special event that the tenth version of their popular Mac operating system, OSX 10.9 'Mavericks' will be a totally free update. The cost of the last version of OSX, Mountain Lion was $20.
