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.
You learn new things every day
Welcome to last year and 10.10.
It is Roman number 10 and branding OS X so it's X.9, X.10 and now X.11
It didn't bug me until you mentioned it....
But now it does, right? It doesn't help that people explained version numbers differ from mathematic ones... It just irks me ;P
To add to the confusion, just remember that 10.11 is actually the Twelfth (12th) major release of OS X.
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"
They were until they ran out of numbers.
I would have preferred to see it renamed to OS XI with the 11th version, Yosemite
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.
Well, i'm more bothered by Windows 10 who follow Windows 8.
Haven't seen that one yet, apparently it's OS Five for you.
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)?
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.
Which is fine. At least you're not being ignorant
X is 10
V is 5
v. = Version
Oh I see. I thought you meant X.11
