background - i use firepod with 10.8 and firewire 800 port and it works fine
Q1 - if i upgrade to 10.9 will it be fine? presonus says 'not supported' but they also said 10.8 isn't supported and it works fine....
Q2 - what if i get a new MAC with 10.9 and thunderbolt only - do those thunderbolt to Firewire adapters work with Firepod/FP10?

Can't say for sure what will happen. Generally accepted best practice is don't change it unless you need to. If it works don't mess with it. Also understand your device is not supported on your current operating system , nor any future version.

The newest Macs, aside from the Mac mini have switched to a Thunderbolt 2 port. It is not compatible with the Thunderbolt 1 firewire adapter as of this time. I wouldn't recommend a purchase of a new one without a lot of verification.

No I'm not a freaking pilot!! The Air Force won't let me have a suit with a zipper...or sometimes shoestrings.

My advice and suggestions should never be considered advice or suggestions. These are mostly insane ramblings of a poor aircraft mechanic who can, strangely enough, still hear.
