Should I download and install Mavericks, OS X 10.9?

At this time, University of Houston Information Technology strongly discourages upgrading to Mavericks, OS X 10.9.

The Mavericks update is available to everyone via the App Store, but please understand we cannot guarantee it's software compatibility with your applications. Please contact your IT Manager before proceeding with an upgrade.

Historically, software downgrades are not possible, because the firmware is modified during OS X installation i.e., once you update you cannot revert back.

Please know that we are working with several IT Managers from many departments to test Mavericks in multiple environments, and we will update folks accordingly.

For questions or problems, email, call 713-743-1411 or contact your IT Manager.
