Separate names with a comma.

Why are the OS X Forums naming conventions so different?
I'm gonna guess typo ?
I believe it is because Apple stopped branding their operating system as 'Mac OS X' in favour of just 'OS X'. And I'm now assuming they're attempting to phase out version numbering before they hit either OS 11 or 10.10.
The official MacRumors reason for this is that Apple isn't using the number in the branding of OS X, nor are they using 'Mac' as a part of it either. This is why 'Mac' isn't part of the forum name and why '10.9' is in parentheses.
They didn't use the numbers publicly in 10.8. 10.9 really doesn't need to be in parentheses.
Apple doesn't even say 10.9 in their literature for Mavericks now, so the parenthesis is just to say it's version 10.9
It should read:
OS X Mavericks (10.9)
OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
Mac OS X Lion (10.7)
annoys the heckins out of me each time i see it
my OCD kicks in too.
I agree with the Mac OS X/OS X thing, but I think the version numbers should always be in parentheses.
