I upgraded my macbook pro from Moutain lion to Mavericks the other day and it wasn’t as as smooth as I was expected. If you are using your mac for remote desktop for work, I would suggest to hold off until all compatible software properly arrive. You might end up with the following issues
Stable NetExtender is not available
I have download a demo version but that is not as stable as on my Mountain Lion. I never had disconnecting issues for hours. Now I does disconnect every now an then. Better to have a stable connection for work environment.
Remote Desktop Keeps Crashing
It crashes at the beginning. Usually takes 2 to 3 attempts to connect to the computer. It used connect with the first attempt!
Parallels Desktop will be broken
This is big draw back. Parallels desktop will not longer work with Mavericks. If you had the latest version of Parallels 8, it will work but not if you had installed it a while ago. This will create a big pain. You will no longer have access to Window Environment. For further embarrassment, Parallels 9 did not work for me, even I could not get the trial version working.
Copy and Past in not seamless
Copy and past from Remote desktop is not seamless. You copy stuff and it is not copied over. You have to repeat it a couple of times to get it working. Not productive.
Dock on remote desktop is not worth it
I was excited about this issue. Well it did not work that great for me. It even crated problems! How? with the dock you also see menu bar at the top that *won’t go away*. This took precious space on my second monitor. Not only that I could not move my window since my window title was in exact same area as the menu bar. It did not provide any major advantage. Not worth upgrading for it, at least for now.
Thunderbolt in Mavericks has some stability issues
Although these has been fixed in a subsequent update.
