    One of the rumored features of 10.9 was Siri integration.

    Recently there was a rumor that Siri may have been cut due to time constraints in getting OS X Mavs and iOS7 out to the public. Looks like that was true.

    Are you disappointed in the lack of Siri? Hoping it might be in 10.10?

    It may not make it in to 10.9 or it may show up as a feature at a later announcement.

    If it isn't in 10.9 I suspect it will be in 10.10.

    10.10? You don't think at that point they will just go to OS 11 already?

    Nope. 10.10.0 will come after 10.9.x

    No. I think X is a big part of the marketing. I don't see a need for them to go to XI.

    Chrome For Mac...

    Chrome for Mac is a very nice product for voice search, setting alarms, etc.

    OS "ten ten" sounds just as stupid as Mav-er-icks. :( (And more confusing).

    I agree, but who knows how far they will take OS X. None of the previous OSes have gone so high in numbering.

    Lack of Siri is disappointing for me. I really wanted to actually use voice control again. Especially if it's activated by voice.

    I'm ok with siri not making it. I don't use it for the iPhone, so I'd probably be even less inclined if that were possible to use it for the Mac

    Ahh no, 10.10.0 is not the same as 10.1.0. So 10.10 can come after 10.9. As a version, 10.10 is not a number with a decimal point, it's 2 numbers separated by a period.

    I remember reading article about why Siri won't be integrated into current macs.

    It was something about having to have multiple microphones like on iOS devices with noise canceling technologies for Siri to be able to understand and learn your voice.

    They could probably have Siri work on a Mac but would have to have a disclaimer on it saying that might not work perfectly in a workplace environment or a public place.

    And I'm not sure that Apple would release a product that did not work properly in all environments.

    Yes they have they took Tiger up to 10.4.11 which should be enough to show that it isn't decimal numbering, and Apple can do 10.10 plus since OS X has become an important enough part of branding they aren't going to get rid of it unless they have a very good reason. I could only see them going to OS 11 if at some point in the future they decide Unix isn't good enough anymore and change everything like they did going from OS 9 to OS X.

    As far as the actual topic of the thread goes about Siri, there's no reason why it couldn't be added in a later beta. Also the rumors about them planning on adding it could be wrong too.

    Agreed. Siri doesn't belong on a serious operating system like OSX. Why? because it sucks big time!

    I more meant previous versions like OS 9. There haven't been as many iterations of previous Mac OSes as there have been with OS X. 10.4.11 was an update of Tiger whereas 10.10 would be a new version of OS X. The third decimal is an update while the second is each individual version of OS X.
