    In what should not be a significant surprise, Apple is already hard at work on OS X 10.9, the next major version of its Mac operating system. Signs of OS X 10.9 showing up in web logs were publicized [Google translation] earlier today by Czech site Letem svetem Applem, and 9to5Mac confirmed that some of the OS X 10.9 hits showing up on its own site were coming from Apple's corporate network.

    Hits on macrumors.com from systems identifying themselves as running OS X 10.9
    A look at our own logs shows similar activity, although there has not been a noticeable uptick in hits over the past several months. Rather, we have been seeing a number of spikes in activity since at least mid-August, consistent with limited internal testing during the working week. Similar patterns were previously seen for OS X 10.8 in 2011 and OS X 10.7 in 2009/2010.

    It is trivial to fake such identification strings, meaning that at least some of the data should be considered untrustworthy. But hits identified as coming from Apple's own networks carry a much greater likelihood of being legitimate, and so it seems fairly clear that Apple is indeed using systems running OS X 10.9 to browse the Internet.

    A release date for OS X 10.9 is currently unknown, but Apple has stated that is moving toward a more rapid development cycle on OS X, with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion's July 2012 launch coming almost exactly one year after the debut of OS X 10.7 Lion. Assuming a similar timeline for OS X 10.9, Apple may begin releasing developer previews in early 2013 ahead of a public launch in the middle of the year.

    I want something big. I'm tired of integration with my itoys.

    Something big would very likely be total integration with iOS, but maybe not in 10.9.

    I don't think we will see anything really big for a while if ever.

    OS XI won't be as cool to say as OSX when it comes out. :(

    Which will probably not work with my 2007 MBP :p I didn't upgrade to ML for fear of slowing things down. Guess it's time to think about looking into a new machine.

    I'm more interested to see if they go to OSX 10.10 or will they then jump to a new naming system entirely for their operating system

    Further iOS cross-pollination here we come!

    Wonder if they'll stick to big cat names. Guess the will until version 11. Guesses for a name anyone?

    OS X + I OS = OS XI.
    We will see a unified OS XI, done!

    It's Steve!

    That's Steve in heaven. Guess they have wifi there...
    Cause I'm pretty sure AT&T won't be giving you a single bar, even on LTE, there. :p

    Puma reloaded? I'm still betting on OSXi.

    I've always wondered why people with early access to a new OSX would need to go to 9to5mac for Apple rumors.

    What I'm really looking forward to is what will hopefully be a new revolution from Jony.

    I wish Apple would release bigger updates, like they used to, rather than incremental updates. Look no further than the fact that 10.8 came out after 10.7.4, remember the days... Tiger made it all the way to 10.4.11 even after Leopard came out.

    Sadly, I have an aluminum unibody MacBook. Mountain Lion is the last OS I will be getting.

    That had a lot to do with the cross-over to x86 CPUs, lots of bugs in the early releases. But I do agree with your premise!

    It will be Mac OS 10.9 - Feral Cat!

    It will be further integration with iOS, just like a Feral cat. Once domesticated yet now contains elements of the wild beast. A hybrid mixture of both worlds.
