OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" (from the Californian commercial of the same name) is the tenth version of the OS X operating system developed by Apple. The software was unveiled on June 10, 2013 during WWDC 2013, and was released on October 22, as a free update from the App Store. It was the first Apple operating system whose update was offered free to users and also for this reason it was installed by 51% of users in the first year (WWDC source of June 2, 2014).
Changes and news:
The code name is no longer that of a large cat (as in the case of previous versions of the system) but of an area of California. In this case Mavericks, it is a spot (in jargon, a site where it is possible to surf) off the north coast of California, approximately 3 km from the port of Pillar Point, in San Mateo County, north of Half Moon Bay in Princeton-by-the-Sea village.
The Finder has been extensively revisited and now the windows are organized in tabs, similar to what happens with modern browsers such as Firefox, Safari and Chrome. It is now also possible to assign multiple tags to each file for easy indexing. In fact, from the sidebar you can search for all files with a certain tag, wherever they are located.
With Mavericks, you can easily manage multiple displays and you can also use a television connected to an Apple TV as a third display.
CPU activity has been optimized thanks to the introduction of timer coalescing that groups low-level operations so that the CPU is left more often at lower power consumption levels. Other technologies have been added such as compressed memory which optimizes the use of RAM memory and speeds up the restart from stand-by mode or App Nap which allows you to reduce CPU usage to applications not visible on the screen, thus reducing energy consumption.
The OS X keychain, which allows you to remember passwords and usernames, is updated by saving the data in your virtual space on iCloud with an industry standard 256-bit AES encryption.
In Mavericks, a new Maps application, along the lines of the one on iOS, allows the search and display of geographic locations and provides driving directions. Integration with OS X also allows you to send a route to your iPhone and get directions on your mobile device.
The well-known application for reading books on iPhone and iPad is now implemented in the operating system of Apple computers. With it you can comfortably read all the titles currently downloadable from the iBooks Store and textbooks created specifically for school study. In iBooks for Mac, thanks to iCloud, all books already purchased and then downloaded to Apple mobile devices are synchronized.
The calendar application has lost the scheumorphic style, especially the leatherette top bar. Craig Federighi himself ironically stated during the presentation that:
"No virtual cows were killed for this calendar."

Once you have downloaded all the parts that make up the file:
Verify that all the files that make up the multi-volume RAR archive are located in the same folder
Right click on the archive file with the lowest number (eg xxxx_Mondo-Tech.part01.rar) and select the item Extract files from the context menu.
In the window that appears, then indicate the path where you want to save the file once it has been assembled and extracted (using the Destination Path field at the top ) and click on the OK button, to start the procedure.
Next, you will find the file that was contained in the archive in the location you indicated above.
