    Ok boys the new cat was just let out of its cage. So now we begin a new set of rumors and talk about the next OS. For now we don't know much so I figured I would post a thread on the name of the next cat. So the topic for this thread is what name do you think should be next. Personally I like Lynx myself.

    Personally I think "Keyboard Cat" is good :D


    Other than that I think that:

    Mac OS X Liger would be halarious. (have a few past experiences with ligers and they scarred me for life... :))

    Cougar would be for 10.8 meaning OS X is getting old. Although, I can see Lynx, or Clouded Leopard for 10.7 [I'm leaning more for Clouded Leopard].

    As for Lion. I imagine Apple will leave Mac OS 10.9 as Lion meaning the best OS X version of them all.

    Apple has trademarked the OS names Leopard and Tiger, they also trademarked lynx and cougar but let them lapse, so likely won't happen.

    I'd hate Lion, just a lame name. I bet another Leopard and then Bobcat.

    Nope, Steve has said that X will keep us busy for over a decade, I bet up to 2014.

    I think he actually said it would last us 20 years... but I could be wrong!

    Actually that sounds right, look at the rate we're going. It's 8 years and we're on the 6th version, which would make it, at this rate, close to 17 years total.

    Next one will be Lynx. It makes sense. Snow Leopard is an introduction to snowy cats, Lynx is the king of snowy cats.
