    Does it bug anyone else that 10.9 is mathematically a far greater value than 10.11?

    No because 11 > 9 this is version numbering not math.

    Version numbers are not decimals.

    Welcome to last year and 10.10.:eek:

    It is Roman number 10 and branding OS X so it's X.9, X.10 and now X.11

    Does it also bother you that there are 3 letters between O and S and that they didn't just make it OP X?

    For a second I thought this thread would be about someone's experience transitioning from 10.9 to 10.11 .....

    No.. To state the obvious.. OS means operating system.. OP X means absolutely nothing, therefore that doesn't bug me at all. OP X would bug me.

    ....but why now and not last year? So 10.10 was OK but not 10.11?

    Because I never noticed it.. Hence "it didn't bug me until you mentioned it"

    I would have preferred to see it renamed to OS XI with the 11th version, Yosemite ;)

    Wow, really...

    Many people put "." in there telephone numbers instead of [spaces] or [dashes].

    does 704.568.3399 look like a mathmatical entry? Of course not..

    It's OS Ten - v. 11, what bothers me are bugs, not version numbers.

    Sheldon, don't let your OCD get you down. ;)

    My bad. I just think it's pretty obvious what 10.11 means for software versions.

    Your sarcasm escapes me at the moment. Are you not aware that the X in OS X is the Roman Numeral Ten (10)? :rolleyes:

    I know. And that's why I call it OS X "insert name". I never call it 10.9/10.10/10.11. But it does irk me thinking about how 10.11 comes after 10.9. Lol I'm just being difficult.
