    So Apple has had Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, and the up & coming Lion. But what bout after Lion? Post some names you think they could possibly do. This could be a fun thread.

    "This could be a fun thread." I can't think of anything more fun.

    Since 2001 they have all been named after cats, so the next one could be 'house cat'.

    Or they could change everything completely and call it 'mole' or 'goat'.

    I'm guessing it'll just be MacOS to go with iOS.

    No it will be a snappier version. So it will be Cheetah.

    they can do an incremental update to Mountain Lion, unless they get pedantic and say it's the same thing as a puma.

    and then I dunno...Bobcat? Saber-tooth? Siamese?

    Yes, I think so. Of course, I thought 10.7 would be Cougar. :eek:

    I think this would sound (and look) too much like Linux. I can already imagine the confusion. Then again, Apple doesn't have a problem with iPod/iPad, so who knows?

    Nobody has thought of it, but there could be a time when OS 11 may be a good idea. The "X" in OS X is cool though but can't last forever. Maybe X-11 could be a good name for the next OS beyond Lion.

    XII is twelve, so that would be confusing as hell. I'm sticking with Courgette.

    I love it, as it brings up images of Courteney Cox.

    Would Courtney Cox be flattered to know this?

    Maybe it will be named after a famous James Bond girl from Goldfinger.

    "I must be dreaming!" :D

    On a serious note, it will definitely be interesting to see how long Apple keeps their cat naming convention.
