Apple’s latest computer operating system, OS X Mavericks, was released yesterday and it seems that the operating system is being adopted faster than its predecessor, OS X Mountain Lion. According to the numbers released by analytics firm, GoSquared, they have found that OS X Mavericks now accounts for 6-8% of all OS X traffic. The firm notes that the numbers are still fluctuating at the moment, but they seem to range between 6-8% which is admittedly pretty impressive given that it was released about 24 hours ago.
This is compared to OS X Mountain Lion which only saw an adoption rate of 3% within 48 hours of its launch. However OS X Mavericks was released as a free update and covers a pretty huge range of MacBook laptops as well as Mac desktop computers, which might explain why the adoption rate is higher than Mountain Lion which was a paid upgrade. It will be interesting to see what the numbers are further down the line, where new customers and late adopters will be added to the mix. What do you guys think of OS X Mavericks so far? Worth the upgrade?
