    I hope Metal for OS X will improve game graphics performance even for Macs using integrated graphics.

    I normally wait 3-6 months before moving on to a new OS version. Just migrated to Yosemite a couple of months ago so it's still a bit difficult to say what I want from El Capitan. The new/upgraded features mentioned by @johannes doesn't really make me want to get the new OS right away. For me the last OS that really made me want to make the jump was Lion.

    perhaps am expecting too much when i say i just want a radically new look and feel of the OS. Like from Windows 3.11 to Windows 7, for example hehe ....

    Apart from than. I'll always want stability, and good battery management. If this will be more stable and yet lighter in resources than the previous version, then I'll be happy :)

    They're doing places in California for the code names. Yellowstone is in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. ;-)

    "Resize or move the Spotlight window. You can now make the Spotlight window taller, as shown above—but not, weirdly, wider. You can also drag it around your screen. For example, if you like to use Spotlight as a calculator (yes, you can type, for example, “37*12” into it to get the result), you can now park the window at the edge of your screen so you can keep working in your main program. (Undocumented tip: To restore the Spotlight window to its original size and position, hold the cursor down on the Spotlight icon—the magnifying-glass—at the top right of your screen.)"

    THIS!
