View Full Version : 2014 - OS XI?

24th October 2013, 06:54 AM

Have to admit it caught me by surprise, but then I'm not running anything over 10.6.8...

Yesterday I went into AppleStore Highpoint, and went over to play on an iMac. I was told - no, not that one - we're upgrading it... Use this one - you can be the first (in store) to use the new OS...

Being behind the times, I opened About this Mac to see it was running 10.9...

So - What will Apple call its OS next year? Will it mark a complete change like X did? A merger of iOS an OS X?

Do we know anything yet?

Could just be 10.10

We do know they already have internal builds of 10.10 and the rumours are saying it'll take on some design elements of ios 7. It'll be interesting that's for sure!

Edit: it will be 10.10. Version numbers are not decimal numbers.

Well, yes, but they didn't get to 7.11, or 8.15...

OS X Point Break?

Nah, didn't they say they were looking to their local area for inspiration? So whatever it is it'll be local to San Francisco/California.

OS X Knots Berry Farm?

OS X Compton?

OS X San Quentin Penitentiary?

OS X Beach Boys...

Hmm, probably too close to beach balls for Apple's liking...

OSX California Girls/Gurls..... depending on if you like the Beach Boys or Katy Perry better..

Did everyone know that Apple went from naming OS X after cats to naming them after a dog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mavericks_(location)#Origin_of_the_name)?

And I wonder if it's merely a coincidence that OS X Mavericks was released in 2013? That is, "M" is the 13th letter of the alphabet. Will next year's OS X begin with the letter "N"? OS X Napa? OS X Novato? OS X Needles? If this were the case, the only "Q" I can find is Quincy.

Named after California Historical Landmark #252, located on State Route 49 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Andreas,_California). I present to you...


Now that would be an interesting release.
