OSX Yosemite on my MacBook Pro

OSX Yosemite Beta

Apple has announced OSX Yosemite at WWDC 2014.  Apple made OSX Yosemite Beta available for public download. I have signed up for the Apple seed and got OSX Yosemite beta dowloaded on my MacBook Pro.

Installation Experience

OSX Yosemite is currently at beta version, I haven’t taken backup and started installing OSX Yosemite. It was challenging decision and unfortunately installed failed at first attempt saying ‘File System error”. I thought, I lost my all data and hard to recover to the my original OSX Mavericks. I restarted an installation and it said “22 minutes remaining” but in reality it took an hour to install whole OSX. It was not little bit frustrating experience while installing OSX Yosemite. in the end it’s installed properly.

Yosemite Features

Yosemite is really awesome in term of look and feel. As mentioned, it has attractive new features but I like following

  • Spotlight 
  • Safari
  • Wallpaper
