>Ive — and Apple as a whole — is fond of saying that design is about more than the way something looks, it’s the way something works. OS X Mavericks might be the most iOS-looking version of OS X to date, but it’s a fundamentally different operating system built for a different type of input. It doesn’t matter how many notifications roll across your Mac’s display or how much Calendar, iBooks, and Maps look like their iOS counterparts — OS X is built around point-and-click, iOS is built around tap-and-swipe. That’s a wide gap to bridge. Nathaniel Mott
I like having apps like Byword and Pages and Keynote etc. that have iOS and OS X versions that sync data across iCloud. I like being able to use some gestures on OS X with the MagicPad. I like that OS X will get notifications.
