Apple's Craig Craig Federighi took the stage at WWDC 2014 to show off new features of Apple's upcoming operating system OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
From a first glance, it looks to have a nice new user interface with the option to have either a light or dark user interface. iOS 7-like flatness and transparency/blurring is used to give the new operating system a snappy new look.
New features include an improved Notification Center with support for new widgets (both Apple and third-party). There is also a new redesigned SpotLight Search that shows up in the middle of the display when you're ready to search with live search results.

If you're ever in need of Internet, OS X 10.10 also has automatic Hotspot feature, which will connect to your iPhone automatically:
OS X 10.10 is also bringing SMS and Phone Calling to your Mac, so you won't be restricted to iMessage and FaceTime:
