    Vote for 10.6's name from this list, I know there could be more, but these were the catchiest. Now 11 I agree should be called Lynx - another poster posted that, and that is catchy, a link to the past and link to the future, Lynx.
    LIST:

    Lynx
    Bobcat
    Bornean
    Caracal
    Cougar
    Kodkod
    Margay
    Ocelot
    Oncilla
    Serval -- this one is other, sorry forgot about serval in the poll

    Where's "Geoffroy's Cat"?

    And "Siamese" for the twins of OS X and OS X Mobile?

    Ocelot sounds good to me, but I like Chundles' idea of calling it Mac OS X Siamese :p

    Lynx is too close to linux, plus it is a name of a browser i believe. I go with Cougar...

    Cougar seems most logical to me. It is probably the next most-commonly known cat after the ones that have already been used in previous versions of OSX, including Leopard.

    Well, it'll almost certainly be Cougar or Lynx...those are the two remaining "cat" trademarks they have.

    Explain why you would name the finest desktop OS in history those names?

    Seconded. Surely "Tabby" is a much better name.

    Isn't Cougar the same animal as the Puma or Mountain Lion?

    And Puma has been used already for Mac OS X 10.1.

    EDIT: Well, I just learned that the Panther is nothing else than a black Jaguar or a black Leopard. :)

    Obviously I wouldn't. It's just a joke. Would you prefer Chinese Mountain Cat or Fishing Cat? Ok Ok just kidding again.
