As far as I know, so far they are still considering the name for the next release (Yeah I know, Thank you Captain Obvious). But from what I have heard from my sources is that the next Version of Apples OS is not going to be OS X at all. It's going to be OS 11, or OS XI or something like that... Take a look at Apples history, they don't keep an OS for my that x.5.x so this may indeed be the last version of OS X that we see, before OS 11 comes out... Now don't Quote me on this Apple has proved me wrong before... But for the most part they have kept true to form... LOL

so I think that Mac OS X 10.6.0 should in fact be named....Cougar! and when you boot up your mac you hear a voice that says "Mac OS X 10.6 Cougar"! *cougar roars* and then you see the apple logo slashed by three claws. that would be awsome ;)

Sure, Apple can keep up with the cat names, but maybe not. Like someone else said, they could just skip OSX 10.6-10.9 and jump straight into OSXI, in which some other breed of animal will be used. I'm going for "OSXI 11.0.1 Falcon".

I don't know man. I really doubt that they'll release OS 11 so soon. If they did, it probably wouldn't be too different from OS X, it wouldn't really be OS 11 at all. I see OS X being around for a while, theres no need for a major rewrite or anything.

To whoever said OSXI won't really be OSXI because it'll be too similar to OSX, you should really rethink that. From what I hear, people don't seem to like Vista's changes because they seem to be changes simply for the sake of change. Most of Apple's changes are much deeper in the kernel so looks isn't everything. I mean, all the OSX 10.x.x revisions seem to look pretty much the same to me. OSXI will probably carry on with a very similar look to OSX. Either that or they'll pull a Vista and change the whole look of the Mac OS just for the sake of change, cuz' we all know how well that works.

Aesthetically I would say Cougar then Lynx or a switch to something different.

As for Calico, I am reminded of Eugene Field's poem:
"The gingham dog and the calico cat
Side by side on the table sat; "
Kind of ruins it for me :)

Lynx is the only name that sounds halfway decent.

Cougar is a term for an older woman that only has sex with younger men. And I could never get that out of my head each time I booted up my system....

uhm, no. apple has used "puma" (10.1), so they're not sticking strictly to genus panthera.

Perhaps... Caracal.


I second that!! Caracal all the way! Ocelot's not so bad either.

If I recall correctly, aren't cougars, pumas, and panthers the same animal? Apple could go with Cougar since they already used Puma and Panther, so I don't see why not.

Seeing as how there are only four big cats and Apple has used all but one, Lion would be a pretty plausible choice as well.

But come on, there are zillions of cats out there. How about using the caracal and ocelot's relatives like:
OS X Serval or
OS X Margay


Anyways, I still think OS XI is just around the corner, but whatever.
