    Hi guys,

    I have questions about OS X; is my homework, and I've been looking around and find nothing about it. Homework consists to know the meaning of the next codenames of Apple products:


    I found out that Pink is the codename for a version of the OS X, but don't know exactly which one. 'bout the other two i have no idea what they mean, even if they're right spelled.

    I hope you can help me.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Taligent would go with Pink, but I'm not sure about the last.

    Pink was an object-oriented operating system designed by Apple. IBM was working on something similar and worked with Apple in a join company called Taligent. It later ended up as much less than an operating system--an operating environment.

    If you want to know about the codenames behind OS X -- you'll need to look at the history of NeXT and pick up some of the Rhapsody history (Which is Mac OS X Server 1.0) -- first edition of Mac OS X that failed with developers due to the effort to port the apps to the new OS.


    Mac OS X v10 added added Classic/Carbon and made the transition for users (and developers) rather easy.

    If you call losing a lot of apps that diddled h/w and old scanners/printers easy.


    Copland & Pink/Taligent were Apple previous efforts to create the next generation OS -- failures.

    Though a lot of Copland features got rolled into System 8&9.
