Will 2014 be like 1984?
By releasing Mountain Lion OSx10.8 this year, we should expect a OSX 10.9 next year. Could it be that this 10.9 os will be the last of the macintosh era? Should we expect a new OS brand being launched in 2014?
it is only logical since 2014 marks the 30th anniversary of the original mac os launch, and it is about time we move from OS "X".
What are your thoughts? os11 I'm 2014?
Ps. i am sorry, i meant post this thread under MAC OS X

Given that we're getting yearly releases, I expect the version number to be emphasized less and less. It will probably be referred mostly as "OS X", and most mainstream applications will be expected to already be up to date, as the App Store will be the primary distribution channel.

I think that 2014 will be like 1984, but maybe not like, "1984".
The iPad now has all the interface capabilities of a laptop (With a removable screen). You can buy a keyboard, allowing you to do anything that a laptop could do, and the touchscreen pretty much could = the trackpad. Apple will probably see nothing stopping them from creating the iOS for computers. There are things I do not like about the iOS, like how everything is limited to the App Store (Hopefully that will not be a problem in the future) and how they don't have anything like Finder, and it's harder to multitask. Also, it doesn't really have a CLI built in. I guess you can buy an emulator, but it really won't be as good as actually using Terminal. It won't be that bad, as I could always boot Linux. Comparatively, Windows and other OS's will pretty much dominate the market for programmers and developers.

And the X is (or maybe was) is an important part of the name (alluding to its UNIX heritage) and a well known brand name. Why change that?
They already shortened it to "OS X", as "Mac" seems to be negligible nowadays.
