    Well, we've had Cheetah, Puma, Jaguar, Panther, Tiger and Leopard. Snow Leopard will be arriving soon... What's next??

    Lynx and Cougar are both already trademarked by Apple apparently, and what about Lion?
    I personally favour Lynx for 10.7. Opinions please :)

    Personally I'm hoping for "Mac OS 10.7 El Gato."

    Though I really like the sound of Cougar too.

    I'm hoping for Lion! I think it's a shame they moved away from the big cat inspired packaging when Leopard came along, I much prefer it to the space theme.

    j/k

    did the cat names only start from os x?

    so when os 11 comes, there will be a different "theme"?

    if so, then i vote LION :)

    Lynx sounds pretty damn cool, sounds like a nickname to some street talking pimp on a starsky and hutch style show

    After Snow Leopard they could have clouded leopard.

    If they are using snow leopard what happened to white Tiger (Or snow Tiger)

    Has Cheetah been used? That would suggest a huge speed increase.

    But I think they will use Lion for 10.10 or what ever the last OSX will be. The King of the OS's

    cougar sounds pretty cool.

    when os XI comes, watch them start using dog breeds or something. i would say birds, but ubuntu already has that :rolleyes:

    Cheetah was the internal Apple name for 10.0. They didn't openly use a name until 10.2 Jaguar.

    How about "Snow Lion"? It's a celestial animal of Tibet and symbolizes fearlessness and healing. Typically portrayed as white with turquoise or jade-green mane. Also:

    "The Snow Lion resides in the East and represents unconditional cheerfulness, a mind free of doubt, clear and precise. It has a beauty and dignity resulting from a body and mind that are synchronized. The Snow Lion has a youthful, vibrant energy of goodness and a natural sense of delight."

    Sounds like a great Apple creature to me--especially that bit about "natural sense of delight!

    How about a hybrid? Perhaps this:

    Mac OSX 10.7 Liger: Like Tiger, only better.

    Apple has abandoned their trademarks on Lynx and Cougar, and they do not hold one on Lion. Not that it really means anything...they didn't apply for a trademark on Snow Leopard until WWDC keynote day when they announced it.

    I still think White Tiger is a good choice. A rare cat like snow leopard.

    @ggjstudios, new folks may not have give it thought. Participation is always a good thing. ;)

    What about Panthera - it's a genus of cats (includes Leopard, Lion, Jaguar, and Tiger)

    Lynx sounds good. If they are already trademarked by Apple, then Apple is probably planning to use them in the future. I doubt that Apple will use Lion, if they haven't trademarked it though. Anyways, the name "Lion" doesn't really fit in. I like the El Gato idea too lol.
