Since late September, we observed on our various servers, some visits from Cupertino and identified by the acronym "Intel 10.9".

No surprises so far, since internal, Apple distributes always 2 or 3 months after a major release, a renumbering of its operating system for its employees. These early versions were also often not big news and not even their names off.

After Lion and Mountain Lion, which feline is Apple going to adopt?


And what will happen then after Mac OS 10.9?

So many questions that will occupy us for a good year :)

Apple must be testing early builds of the next OS. After all, they planned to do annual OS releases going forward.
Does anyone have a source for that? Couldn't find info that os x is now on an annual cycle. All I found was this funny tweet:

Apple Rumor: Mac OS X 10.9 "Cougar" will have special networking options to automatically seek out Macs running the more boyish System 6.0.5
Anyway, 10.9 soonish could be confusing for the average user.

Free iOS updates every year make sense with each new iPhone but OS X doesn't need to ape iOS features and its release cycles.

Many people I know skipped 10.7, too many useless gimmicks and other issues. 10.8 is better again, but more iOS gimmicks added, no need for a rushed 10.9 in 2013 imho.
