Hi,

I'm not very familiar with the west coat (or any of the US, really!) and had never heard of Mavericks until yesterday. I have to say, the name is growing on me after initially not liking it.

Part of it is the dual meaning (a maverick being a non-conformist, it's like Apple's going back to it's Think Different days!), but the name just flows as well! :p

I was just wondering what you thought the next version of OS X based on the Cali theme will be?

I thought maybe OS X Yosemite, OS X Hollywood or OS X Golden Gate. The final version could be OS X Cupertino!

Just a bit of fun as I count the days to the Mavericks release... :o

Peace

Personally I think 10.9 will be the last of the naming convention. They just couldn't come up with a name.

OS 11.0 will just be OS XI

Why should there be OS XI? Why?! What's wrong on 10.10 ? It's only number, it would be possible to write it as A.A in hexadecimal system, for example.. Apple is using these numbers mainly for developers, as it is much simpler to orient in documentation by number then by cats/US places ... And X in OS X has two meanings:
1) Reference to UNIX
2) Mac OS 9 --> Mac OS X ( X is significant difference from arabic numbers - They've wanted to make user think:"That will be something completely new" ).

---> Above are reasons why there won't be OS XI in my opinion - And what about iOS, will it be called "iOS I 1" when it reaches version 10 (The same logic as with OS X) :confused: :p

Tiger had 10.4.11 version - why it wasn't called 10.5.1? That would be the same like with OS X 10.10 --> OS XI 11.0 ..

Apple wants to keep the California theme going for the next 10 years. Which is cool IMO, I like the name Mavericks.

Nah, they said they want a naming scheme to use for OS X for the "next ten years". So they probably won't be moving from OS X for a long time. It'll likely eventually drop the dot numbers and just be OS X and then a name.

La Brea, Presidio, Sausalito, Granada, Half Moon, Alcatraz. Alcatraz will be the first version to disallow applications outside of the app store.

The naming scheme is going to be difficult this time around, since it needs to be both inspirational and have a marketable name. Unfortunately many spectacular places in California have Spanish names, which doesn't make sense for people that don't speak the language or live in California. We are already off to a bad start with Mavericks, but I would suggest:

OS X Imperial
OS X Sierra
OS X Trinity
OS X Yosemite
OS X Golden Gate
OS X Pinnacles
OS X Headwaters
OS X Sonoran

Fun Choices:
OS X YOLO ;) (seriously a county name)
and if they implement iOS Clown Pants's new look, than OS X Death Valley.

Sure they could, but "Maverick Meerkat" didn't fit.

As the X in OSX already signifies 10, I agree they could get rid of the OS# as well as the version number, ie #10.9, as in OSX 10.9.x Mavericks, could become OSX Mavericks.x

As for names, check this out:

La Brea (runs like molasses)
San Andreas (catastrophically unstable)
Tahoe (freezes regularly)
Lombard (pretty but slow)
Sacramento (dysfunctional)
Telegraph (keeps begging you for money)
Alcatraz (the most locked-down OS yet)
Pasadena (shuts down every night at 8:30)
Atherton (open only to the wealthiest customers)
San Fernando (optimized for porn)
Donner (cannibalizes other Apple products)
Zabriskie (spontaneously combusts)
Cupertino (assumes you don't know what you want until it shows it to you)

I'd add Big Sur to that list. Right after OSX Mavericks.x >> OSX Big Sur.x

10 years of top gun names would be hilarious. Probably not very good for apple as a company tho lol.

I know it's silly, but as a native Californian, I'm feeling a small twinge of pride over the new naming convention.

Tahoe - nod to CA skiing
Napa - nod to wine country and farming
Baja - fishing industry and adds a nod to our southern neighbors
Carlsbad (caverns) - sounds cool and adds a nod to San Diego
Catalina - Tourism island off So CA coast
Anaheim - Disney tie in (sounds like a processor name though)
Redwoods - CA forest country
Palm Springs - nod to desert
Palo Alto - obvious reasons

Thats what I thought was going to happen in the keynote, must say was a little surprised when this didn't happen :rolleyes:.

How awesome is it that you nailed it with your 1st choice. I'm waiting for OS X Cupertino. :cool:

The last name for it should be apropos: OS X Zzyzx (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zzyzx,_California).
