Thanks Paul, I was getting it confused with the earlier 2.1 OS X

“Every composer – at all times and in all cases – gives his own  
interpretation of how modern society is structured: whether actively  
or passively, consciously or unconsciously, he makes choices in this  
regard. He may be conservative or he may subject himself to continual  
renewal; or he may strive for a revolutionary, historical or social  
palingenesis." - Luigi Nono
