You're going to kick yourself when it's released. But I know Apple waited a long time, and some people couldn't wait.

Would gladly kick myself instead of seeing so many folks screwed over by apple for dragging out the possibility of an updated mac pro. I really enjoyed my 2008 octo but the apple tax to afford a new one was out of my reach as was for many. Lets hope apple does something, one way or the other.

Well I'll be...you're a frickin genius, no jokes. I've studied that photo way too many times and I hadn't thought of that. I sure hope you're right, I've been on Mac for 15 years so I've been around since OS X's inception and I'm very done with aqua. Thumbs up to you.

Well you can't blame people for being excited. I mean, I for one am very tired of the anti-Apple crowd saying how tired, aged and boring OS X and iOS are. Tired of the endless ranting about no new Mac Pro's being in sight, the iPhone is too small, iWork is way too long in the tooth (which it seriously is) and the rest, yada yada yada. Hopefully WWDC will put most of this to rest.

My god, that's what you thought I meant? That I don't know how numbers work? Get a grip. Insulting bs.

Mac started in 1984 with OS 1.0, maybe you didn't know that. Follow the timeline from there. Out.

Or the water means OS X is going to be "cleaner," just like the design for iOS will be...

So obvious. I assume you are right.

Aqua is the whole windowing system, not just the artwork. And if they're going flat, I don't think they can simply tread into Microsoft's patents and copyrights, and look like them.

Yes but Aqua is primarily the design - it was meant as a tribute to water (hence the name) with droplets and shine on elements. You can still see this in many items on the OS. For example in Messages (both iOS and OSX) you see it has a gloss over each message. This is from when the Aqua interface was first introduced (like in the scrollbars).

In my opinion Apple's WWDC banner for OSX is a small tribute to Aqua in that its been a long standing theme of the operating system but now its done. The X symbolises the OS and the fact that its crossing out a wave. The wave (water) is saying its a fresh start and washing away the old.

So with that in mind I believe we will see the removal of all gloss (aqua styled elements). They already started that with Lion and the introduction of iOS scrollbars etc.

Potentially silly question, but have we actually had any confirmation that the next version will be 10.9? I'm sure Cook just announced the 'future of OS X' at AtD. Is it possible that this could be a leap beyond an x.x increment?

Can't remember if we've sent the usual slew of '10.x appearing in logs' stories that we usually get predating this sort of announcement. Happy to be wrong though (rusty memory).

This thread should have a blinking popup stating "Yes.... We know......" come up each time people enter "sea lion" in the text field.

And a counter prehaps. It must have hit 1.000 mentions now.

Ok, well not just surf breaks, but I did call Mavericks

Here's hoping they never call an OS X release Disney Land.

It's interesting, framing it as California leaves things wide open.
Yosemite, Sequoia, Mt. Whitney, Big Sur, etc... all sound good, but they could just as easily include Hollywood, Golden Gate, etc...

Time will tell.. I did love the Sea Lion joke, nice to see them joke around a bit.

That was my favorite part of the keynote, I burst out laughing when that came up. It's great to see that Apple has a sense of humor. Looks like lots of people have joked about it on MacRumors going way back to mackmgg in 2009 maybe Apple reads MR?

We'll have to see how Mavericks catches on. I guess that will have to do more with the final feature set and how well it performs than the name of the OS I hope at least!

Not being intimately familiar with California locations, knowing nothing about surfing, and having never heard of the place, I wouldn't have come up with Mavericks in a million years! I do like the name though, and it's appeal is growing on me more and more as it settles in.

I loved how Federighi joked about Sea Lion being the new name. Wouldn't be surprised if they added that to the keynote after this thread blew up over the weekend.

Good times!
