So far, each new version of OS X has had the name of a cat.

Cheetah, Puma, Jaguar, Panther, Tiger...

All two syllables, which makes me think the next release will follow the same pattern. This rules out Ocelot and Lynx. A potential candidate is Lion, but this name seems too... common, especially when preceded by Tiger, which is why I believe the next release will be called...

*drumroll*

Leopard

edit: No wait. Cougar! Much better.

who knows, since the pace of major OS updates is changing after tiger, maybe the way they market it will change too, i just dont see any big cat names working as well after tiger, Lion doesnt fit and neither does Leopard

Lion doesn't sounds so good. I mean when I think of Lion, I think of a cat just sitting there waiting for the girls to catch his meal :rolleyes: ;) Leopard does sound alright, IMO. How about Cougar?

How high will 10.x.x go? Maybe after Tiger will see OS XI (OS 11) :eek: :)

now that i think about it, Cougar might be a possibility, but i still think that they may go with a different marketing stategy

It's time to move on

"OS11 - Unparalleled"

It's time to give up the X and go back to Arabic numerals.

And the cool cats need to be traded in for something else. Maybe - reindeer names!!!

OS11 - Dasher

;)

I was going to say Lion, because it's the king of the jungle and all... but now that I read it.... It's going to be Cougar all the way.
