Why I Run Old System Software

I installed Mavericks just a few days ago because Xcode 6.0.1 requires
it.  I installed Xcode 6.0.1 because I need to know how to work with
it, as well as to develop for iOS, just to get a job as an iOS App

I don't have a problem with learning to use the latest tools.  What I
don't understand was why Xcode refused even to launch under OS X

That's Just Asinine.
