chiming in with a recommendation against Mavericks.  Issues with Adobe software, ugly update to the dock, and a slower machine.

I know this is going to be a painful, but I"m not sure I want to jump to Mavericks (10.9). I could upgrade to 10.7 or 10.8 but still have to research to see if my programs will work.
