Announced today at Apple's special media event, OS X Mavericks can now be downloaded for free in the Mac App Store. Click here for the direct link. Version 10.9 of the operating system comes with a number of enhancements, including Safari Push Notifications, Compressed Memory, App Nap, iBooks, and Maps. You will probably have to be a bit patient for the update to download with Apple saying it's a 5.29GB file. And you don't even need the latest and greatest Mac and OS X version to download Mavericks. According to Apple, even devices from 2007 can run the OS. You must have at least version 10.6.8 installed, though.
