    I like how Craig Federighi was making fun on the name "High Sierra" and other names that they announced realizing that they were just silly..

    Specs:

    My initial thought was that this was an unfortunate name likely to cause confusion - Sierra v High Sierra. But there are precedents for this approach: Leopard/Snow Leopard; Lion/Mountain Lion.

    And on further reading, it seems likely that High Sierra is more of an add-on or expansion of Sierra than a "full blown" upgrade, so the name is probably appropriate.

    Not that Apple cares what I think, but....

    Ian, that's the path that Apple is following in general it seems..iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S, etc..and with the macOS/OS X versions, a major upgrade following by a feature enhancement followed by a major upgrade..

    Specs:
    iPad Pro 12.9 latest iOS
    I still prefer the names of the big cats ..... OSX Garfield would have been the best version ever :-)

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Goofy or not. The code names of the various versions of the Mac OS are certainly more interesting/creative than what Windows does. Although I will admit the numbering system for Windows OS versions does help in knowing what version is newer/older...where the code names for the Mac OS tell us nothing (at first glance) what version is older/newer.

    Of course Apple did the same thing with the Classic Mac OS (going from System 1 thru System 9)...from 1984 thru 1999. But then in 2001 Apple took a different direction...and focused more on the code names rather than version numbers for each OS version.
