    So far, each new version of OS X has had the name of a cat.

    Cheetah, Puma, Jaguar, Panther, Tiger...

    All two syllables, which makes me think the next release will follow the same pattern. This rules out Ocelot and Lynx. A potential candidate is Lion, but this name seems too... common, especially when preceded by Tiger, which is why I believe the next release will be called...

    *drumroll*

    Leopard

    edit: No wait. Cougar! Much better.

    I forgot about Cougar! That would be an awesome name.

    10.5 Leopard
    10.6 Cougar

    who knows, since the pace of major OS updates is changing after tiger, maybe the way they market it will change too, i just dont see any big cat names working as well after tiger, Lion doesnt fit and neither does Leopard

    Lion doesn't sounds so good. I mean when I think of Lion, I think of a cat just sitting there waiting for the girls to catch his meal :rolleyes: ;) Leopard does sound alright, IMO. How about Cougar?

    How high will 10.x.x go? Maybe after Tiger will see OS XI (OS 11) :eek: :)

    now that i think about it, Cougar might be a possibility, but i still think that they may go with a different marketing stategy

    Don't know if Linus Torvald would approve. Too closely named also to Linux!

    It's time to move on

    "OS11 - Unparalleled"

    It's time to give up the X and go back to Arabic numerals.

    And the cool cats need to be traded in for something else. Maybe - reindeer names!!!

    OS11 - Dasher

    ;)

    I thought OS11 versions are going to be named after quantum particles ....... but I hope for famous people. Would you love to have an Elvis OS ;)

    Just as an observation, I remember "Tiger" sounding awkward at first.

    I was going to say Lion, because it's the king of the jungle and all... but now that I read it.... It's going to be Cougar all the way.
