    I'm sure either Lynx or Cougar, since Apple trademarked those names a while back when they did Tiger and Leopard...

    But seriously, I think it'll be Mac OS X LOLcat.

    Too confusing. Sounds like "linux," and i'm old enough that when i hear "lynx" in the software context I think of the text-based web browser.

    I 2nd that, 'Ocelot' sounds kinda different but who said it will be named after cats, now leopards theme is kinda spacy apple seem to be moving away from cat's, might be planets next, OSX 10.6 Neptune

    Snow leopard? Like freezing, slow... that kinda stuff? I think we have that now, waiting for the real leopard, the one that likes to run fast.

    Didn't they already use Cougar? If not, I think it's the most realistic name we could see. Apple want to use cool cats with cool names. Something like Lion just doesn't sound cool to me.
