What's the advantage of using a shill company here to register trademarks? I can see if for things like CarPlay where they might want to hide future projects (and where the name might give the goal of said project away), but I can't see that being a big deal for the names alone of the now-apparently-annual OS X updates.

OSX names no longer hold the same depth of meaning they used to hold. It was all cool when OSX was a nugget going after the world. Its success since then dampens the whole association, the version names are not quite as relevant anymore. I'm not saying they're no longer important, but I think we can mostly agree they just don't have the 'oomph' they used to have.

I'd much rather have some sort of hint of what's to come for OSX, the naming scheme is a minor and pointless bit of information.

Time to "Think Different" Apple

I mean, OS X is kind of tired. You can only promote a version 10 of a product for so long. Having version 10.10, 10.11 is just dumb, period.

Perhaps its time for Apple to invest some of them billions into marketing a new OS name, I mean, call it xOS even to get rid of the X = 10 moniker and match the iOS branding syntax.

At some point Apple is going to have to ball up and update the version to 11.

I'd imagine it to be more so just because it seems unprofessional. Would seem like an advertisement almost.

I doubt they'd have to pay royalties though, to be honest, given the entire history with Disney and Steve Jobs la la la la.

That is not a decimal point. It's just a separator.

Good thing it's not a mathematical equation. It's a versoning number, with the number on the left being the overall version, and the number on the right marking the update for that version.

If that drives you crazy, the point releases for the point releases must really run you up the wall. 10.9.3! TEN POINT NINE POINT THREE!

edit: mbh beat me to it by a minute.

Its a label, an identifier to signify a version not a number that will be used for mathematics

No. It is not. Software versioning does not follow mathematical rules.

It's more like the 10th update to OS 10.

There was a 10.4.11.
