    With the great frequency of Mac OS releases, they are running out of cats to name future ones after....

    I wonder what they will resort to next?

    Lol. Cheetah, maybe? Although it doesn't sound very catchy. Lynx, perhaps?

    kitty


    But the bigger question: what family of animals will they use when they release OS XI. Dogs? Birds? Fish? Will there be a OS XI?

    Too bad windows doesnt imply the same naming scheme
    they could have used the names of venereal diseases for their layout

    windows xp herpes edition
    the persistant virus

    windows warts edition
    the virus that makes rust and alkali deposits form on your motherboard

    well according to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs


    "In an interview in the book What the Dormouse Said: How the 60s Counterculture Shaped the Personal Computer Industry, Steve Jobs talks about how taking LSD was "one of the two or three most important things he has done in his life".

    and


    "in Apple’s early days, wishing to surround himself with people of a similar mindset, Jobs would often ask job applicants about their sexual histories and how many times they had taken LSD.

    so i think the next OS should be names of acid

    A lot of people like Saber Tooth, but there's too much concern about extinct jokes.

    My favorite next naming trend would be for either Dragons or Galaxies.

    you bastard i was going to say dragons but i didnt know if there were any other names for dragons except for "dragons"

    but you hit the nail on the head with galaxies
    i think that it could be an 80% possibility

    Galaxies, stars, constellations, planets, or some related term would be reasonably recognizable for most people, so something of that nature might be a possibility.

    Dragons, or other mythical creatures would also be interesting.

    Dragon names........

    Liger. Love it. "It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic. "
