OS X Yosemite promises a number of new and improved features including seamless interaction with iCloud and its new component iCloud Drive, plus other Mac software and services. In fact, Yosamite looks like taking the Mac OS X to a totally new level.
iCloud, or more specifically “iCloud Drive” now works like any other folder on your desktop and falls in line with the common perceptions of cloud storage.
At the time of writing, OS X Yosemite is available to users of the the Beta Program, where you are invited to help shape the development of future upgrades by installing the latest pre-release software, and submitting your feedback.
You will need to have OS X Mavericks already running on your Mac, so it may be a good idea to create a separate partition for trying out OS X Yosemite and keeping your current OS X Mavericks setup free of bugs. For this you will need up to 20GB of hard disk space.
