I went to Mavericks because I needed some 3rd-party applications such as a 
decent QR-code reader (there's one for Snow Leopard but it's a bit 
primitive) and iStat (won't run properly on Snow Leopard), security fixes, 
etc.  It's also much nicer all around.

My only gripe is that the calendar "Reminders" function got hived off into 
its own application.
