This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
It's well known that Apple uses software to drive hardware sales (as opposed to a company like Microsoft which is the exact opposite), but to give away the OS for free took a lot of people by surprise.
Anybody tried it out? What are the new features/applications which help from a development perspective? Is it a real time update (or does it download the installer?) In case I choose to upgrade, any recommendations on how to go about it? (I got burnt once when I opted for upgrading Ubuntu instead of clean install)
