    So as we all know after cat names Apple has turned to California landmarks for name suggestions in OS X. I miraculously guessed the name correctly last year as Yosemite (and got absolutely "0" upvotes) and I wonder what it will be this year. I'm eager to hear your guesses too but I think this year it will be "OS X 10.11 Sequoia"

    It's free to try!

    I like OS X Diablo.

    Considering they are only focusing on places in California as they said during both the Mavericks & Yosemite unveil I'm not sure what they will go with. But here are some of my guesses.

    OS X 10.11 Tahoe

    OS X 10.11 Mojave

    OS X 10.11 Sequoia


    And my favorite.. OS X 10.11 Catalina which sounds really nice. Saw it over at MacWorld UK.

    Apple usually make copyrights when they have a selection of names and they usually do that 1 month ahead of WWDC like they did back with Yosemite. But of course they couldn't copyright Yosemite.

    They can't copyright "Yosemite" by itself, but they can copyright "OS X Yosemite," "OS X Catalina," etc. Also, look at the post earlier in this thread where it lists names Apples has already applied for trademarks on - Yosemite was on the list.

    Osx 11

    I'm guessing OSX Redwood / OSX Sequoia. My next guess would be OSX Mojave.

    We have had Water with Mavericks and we have had Mountain range with Yosemite so I thought maybe trees/forests with Redwood / Sequoia. The other alternative is desert with OSX Mojave. I'm not really familiar with places in California so I'm probably over simplifying it.

    I can see it possibly being OSX 11 rather than OSX 10.11 - but it probably won't happen. Either way I will probably end up calling it OSX 11.

    I know some people think it does not make sense as X stands for 10... but OSX 11 is still OS 10 11 but sounds better. To me OSX has become an icon and the X means mac like PC means Windows. To change to OS 11 would be confusing with Ios and also would tend to indicate the operating system has had a significant re-write.
    So I expect to see OSX and IOS until the two finally merge into one.

    Also some people think that 10.9 should have then gone to 11... but I see 10.10 as actually completing the cycle so to speak. This is why I think it may be called OSX 11 even though it will probably end up being OSX 10.11

    Either way I will probably end up calling it OSX 11.
    (Sorry for my long wordy post!)

    Hmmm

    My guesses are:

    OS X Shasta

    OS X Tahoe

    OS X Sequoia

    OS X Mojave


    I know Shasta sounds a bit silly considering it's a brand of pop but it is a place in California, Mt. Shasta, beautiful at that.

    Maybe they will take a page out of Microsoft's playbook and call it OS X 10.12 ;-)

    10.10 should have been named La Brea since it's such a big Tar Pit.
