I have read every one of Siracusa's epic OS X reviews since 10.5 on. Lately they provide my feature overview before I get around to installing the actual update; this year is no different.

John Siracusa will be another illustrious name in the Pantheon of All Things Geek. I'm surprised he was not included in "Ready Player One".

From the advanced non-Mogul to the Mogul who just bumped into something magical and knows not about it.
Those Moguls find good tips and hidden wonders inside each OS. Not surprisingly you see the water-downed versions of his tips all over the net

As they have touted, the only one review of Yosemite that you need to read.

Recommends it for: Fanbois only
It should have been called "The Fanboi Review": entire chapters dedicated to *GASP!* new icons, for the love of God…

Another outstanding review of the latest Mac OS. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the design philosophy of the Swift programming language.
