My brother was just wondering when Mac OS X 10.4 Mountain Lion, and OS 10.5 Kitty were coming out.
Actually, I thought I read somewhere that Lion was the name for 10.4.
Mountain Lion is the same as a Puma or Cougar, that was 10.0 IIRC.
"Kitty" would be a little nonspecific. 10.5 Domestic Shorthair?
There is still Tiger, Leopard, Bobcat, Serval, Caracal, and of course Lynx, but that probably sounds too much like Linux, and they might not use it unless they do some sort of Linux/Unix fusion.
I read somewhere that 10.4 is called Lynx. I may be wrong tho.
Since the cat is out of the bag, I can tell you about OS X for x86 processors, code name *****.
edit: damn filters ruin a great joke. (p*ssy)
Lynx is the name of a popular deodorant over here, I'm not sure that's a great name..
That was OS X 10.2 Server.
really? i didnt know that oh well are you sure they used TIGGER and not TIGER
What was Apple thinking with not registering Ocelot?!?! It sort of rolllllllllllllls off the tongue. OS X Ocelot. However invaribly Jobs would slauter the name as his Jagwire reference. UGH.
What would be cool is if the version of OS X that comes out before Longhorn is called Sabertooth.
I hope that whenever MOS is upgraded they will maintain the feline names. It just sounds cool. Or if nothing else with OS 11 they call it
OS XI: "MS @$$ Beater" Edition
OS XI.1: "MS Dominatrix" Edition
OS XI.2: "Oh god Microsoft is going down" Edition
OS XI.3: "[insert snappy name here]" Edition
OS XI.4: "DAMN THAT'S SOME GOOD S**T!" Edition
OS XI.5: "Marauder" Edition
OS XI.6: "MS ain't got nothing on us." Edition
OS XI.7: "Virus free edition"
OS XI.8: "Copy THIS Microsoft!" Edition
OS XI.9: "Prelude" Edition
OS XII: [Infinity Symbol]
Ya know. I like that idea a lot:
OS XII: [Infinity Symbol]
Sort of a slap in the face of those that think Apple is dieing.
Damn, I was gonna suggest Ocelot!
It's quite an attractive animal
Yep. See this list
I thought Tiger was next...
personally they should go with os x garfield or os x pookie, IMHOP.
i think os x bovine would be the best then everyone mooing their macs.
I hope they stick with the cat names, especially since it's so funny to hear Steve Jobs go through the list at all of the keynotes. "Well we started with..."
Duff-Man says....while I like the sound of "lynx" I wonder if it maybe will sound a bit too much like "linux"...so how about - "fat domestic tabby" - oh yeah!
speaking of which, the text web browser in unix/linux is lynx...http://lynx.browser.org/
I don't know if naming an OS that the media often sees as a dying system after an extinct cat is really the best idea.
How about Bastet
10.9.9.9. -> FELINE ETERNAL
(or should they quit the silly cats and just give it a good old-fashioned name like 'Beauregard'?)
"Bastet" would be Steve himself
XI: Bert Lahr
XIII: Julie Newmar
XIV: Smelly Cat
