they should stick to sequential numbering, it's an OS not a car

Valley Cat.

Hey, I was just thinking: Did Apple plan to let this "cat" have exactly 9 lives, and then kill it off by merging into iOS?

That would be what I call "foresight"!

I could definitely see Apple taking up the name "OSX Lynx" for their next OS release - although, they're really running out of easily identifiable types of wildcats

If they did make a transition in the theme of their naming schemes, I definitely don't think they'd adopt anything space related - since Google seems to already have done that (Android, Nexus) and Samsung (Galaxy) etc. - following in the footsteps of two of their largest competitors doesn't seem very Apple-esque. I could be wrong, though.

I like the idea ! Maybe not for 10.9, but for the merge between OS X and iOS, if it ever happens.

For the 10.9 name, my first choice, personally, would be the ocelot, and then the saber-toothed tiger.

For the next generation OS, whatever it will be (iOS I?), possibly naming their operating systems after land formations would sound cool (iOS I 1.0 Volcano, 1.1 Mountain, 1.2 Gorge, etc.). If they wanted to go into space, I would name them after constellations (iOS I 1.0 Andromeda, 1.1 Pegasus, 1.2 Taurus, etc.).

Here is another one that votes for constellations, I have already named my hard drive partitions with the names of few planets of the solar system so a constellation name for the OS will be the perfect complement.

What I wondered is why so far, in the Cook era when we knew every detail of the Iphone 5 ages before the presentation, 1 month ahead of the rumored new OS presentation no one knows the name and features of the new OS?

Also if you google it you don't find a dime apart some speculation of late november 2013...

If Apple don't use constellation names than moons from our solar system and beyond would be nice.

OS X Luna
OS X Thebe
OS X Europa
OS X Typhon
OS X Hyrda
OS X Hyperion
OS X Titan

I wonder if they're heading in a new direction with 'thunderbolt' display and 'lightning' cable etc.

I took a look at the United States Patent and Trademark Office hoping to find any trademarked big cat names. What I discovered was that both Lynx and Cougar were trademarked by Apple in 2003. So that should put the mystery to rest until 10.11

Both trademarks for Lynx and Cougar were abandoned around 5 years ago.

I didn't see the 'dead' status. The trademarks could easily be picked up again, but I wonder why they were cancelled at all.
