Apple announced the latest version of its Mac operating system called
OS X 10.9 Mavericks
back in June. If you're a Mac user that's been counting the days until you can get your hands on Mavericks, some good news has surfaced today.
Apple has released OS X 10.9 Mavericks Golden Master to developers. The Golden Master version of the software is the final version of the operating system that will be installed on all new Macs and will be available for existing customers to download.
It is likely that Apple will launch OS X 10.9 later this month, possibly to coincide with the launch of new iPads and the new Mac Pro. Mavericks will bring several new features including support for iBooks, Finder Tabs, integrated Apple Maps, and a new power saving feature called App Nap.
At the same time the Mavericks Golden Master was released to developers, Apple also offered up Xcode 5.0.1 Golden Master as well. Xcode is a developer toolset for Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad development. It is expected to launch to consumers alongside Mavericks.

The same tools one could use to manage Linux boxes in an AD controlled environment are also available for OS X.
Here's an example that is actually used in my University to integrate all the Macs and Linux boxes into the AD domain.
I've always said, If you plan on bashing a competitor platform, always know what you are talking about. Even if you don't like said platform for whatever reason.

Yet the bash-ee started off this thread by bashing Windows without bothering checking his facts (comparing previous version Windows vs OS X upgrade costs).
btw - what does having AD on a Mac have to do with upgrade distribution in a closed network? Microsoft provides a means to do that. Does Apple? Or are you forced to have your IT team integrate in expensive 3rd-party components that may or may not have been built specifically for OS X?
