    Cook: Makes over 50% of our installed base working on our latest OS. This is the fastest adoption ever of any PC operating system in history.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:10:45 PM
    Cook: You may wonder how this compares to Windows. (lots of laughs). Cook made a chart.

    Windows 8 shipped a year before Mavericks, and it's at 14%. Crowd goes "ahhh." Cook: "Need I say more?"
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:11:11 PM
    Cook points out that after nearly two years, Windows 8 is on 14% of PCs.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:11:19 PM
    Cook: Today to talk about the future of OS X, I'd like to invite up Craig Federighi
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:11:30 PM
    Federighi heads up Apple's software efforts.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:11:32 PM
    To be fair, Windows 8 is not seen as an "upgrade" to most -- it's just something you get when you buy new hardware.

    Craig: It was just a year ago, here at WWDC, where we narrowly averted a major OS X naming crisis. We were able to shift from names based on big cats to names based in California, starting with OS X Mavericks. It's another year and time for another name.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:12:39 PM
    Federighi - OS X Rancho Cucanmonga, etc.

    Jokes about OS X shifting to place names for updates. As a NYC-er. all lost on me...
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:13:09 PM
    Federighi joking about possible names - They boldly ventured north, landing at OS X Weed. (Lots of cheers). Strangely this had lots of pockets of support.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:13:19 PM
    Federighi - We discovered OS X Yosemite
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:13:25 PM
    As expected, Yosemite. At least I've heard of that.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:13:27 PM
    So rumors were right.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:13:39 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:13:42 PM
    Federighi: Big enhancements to our popular apps and something new we call continuity.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:14:00 PM
    Federighi: OSX started with the bold design of Aqua. Now Mavericks. With Yosemite, we continue this evolution.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:14:04 PM
    Video time.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:14:32 PM
    Federighi: Video is showing differnt icons popping up to show what they look like.

  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:15:03 PM
    OS X updates have been substantial, but haven't much changed the underlying way you interact with our machine. Windows 8, even if not successful, had to reengineer completely
    for touch.

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:15:38 PM
    Federighi: I think the team has done some remarkable work. We started with the most fundamental controls, focusing on clarity as well as utilty. We refined the toolbars, .. use of translucent materials gives you a sense of place as you scroll your content.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:15:55 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:15:56 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:16:21 PM
    Federighi: Same translucent tools helps maintain a sense of depth and place as you move your windows over one another. Translucent material also used for the dock. Beautifucally crafted new icons. Check out that trash can, it's a gorgeous trash can.

    By going with free or low-cost annual updates, Apple makes getting the latest OS very frictionless. By going with every-few-years major for-purchase upgrades, MS makes it friction-filled.

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:16:49 PM
    Federighi: We also focused on precise typography throughout. Consistent and clear type. We know for our pro users, want to focus on the center of the screen. Also introduced a dark mode.

    Federighi: Of coruse these changes extend through the applications. With calendar, construction with common toolbar. .. Makes instantly recognizeable but maximizes space for content. Also a new look for sidebar apps like Messages.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:17:25 PM
    Facetime, Contacts, Reminders.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:17:38 PM
    Federighi: All in all they come together for a gorgeous and more usable version of OS X, the best ever
