    Sorry for my bad english it's not my native language. Is Mavericks last version of OS X? I know that X stands for 10, so what's next? Will OS 11/XI work with current Macs? Will it require touchscreen? Or will Apple just change the name of OS?

    After 10.9(Mavericks) there could be 10.10.

    It'll likely still be marketed as OS X (ten). The name is fairly known, and just sounds and looks more "badass" than OS XI (eleven). :D

    Version numbers aren't decimals. For example, Tiger 10.4.11 exists. 10.4.10 was obviously different than 10.4.1 also

    Software version numbers don't work like that, otherwise what would 10.8.5 be equal too? =)

    Apple pretty much said as much.

    Yeah. It will still be OS X and releases will be named after places in California.

    Apple doesn't market OS X as OS X 10.9, its OS X Mavericks.

    10.10 is just the next logical version after 10.9.

    OS X 10.0 will have a OS X "Californian-themed name"

    a few options are on the table really. They could merge with iOS or make some other term like mOS.

    Apple could stick with OS X and leave the decimals for fine print which don't actually add up to os x (11.3 etc).

    Apple could go with a completely different naming scheme like just calling it Mavericks then when the next version comes out a completely new place without any OS X in front. Maybe Apple Mavericks.

    I assume they are going to continue with these new naming iconic places naming conventions because they can hardly do only one especially comparing it with how many animals they used previously.

    One thing for sure is, they probably have figured it out 5+ years ago. They planned Lion / Mountain Lion (king of beasts) to be the final animal before switching to Mavericks so they must have planned that ages ago. There are a lot of iconic places in the world.
