7.6 - Harmony
8.0 - Tempo
8.1 - Bride of Buster
8.5 - Allegro
8.6 - Veronica
9.0 - Sonata
9.1 - Sonata (Not sure why same name)
9.2 - Moonlight

10.1 - Puma
10.1 Server - Puma
10.2 - Jaguar
10.2 Server - Tigger

this thing is pretty cool it has a history of all of the updates for each OS and a link to download all of them as well

Mac OS X Server 10.2 is code named Jaguar. And one of the Mac OS 8's was code named Copland. Your source is wrong. and all the Mac OS X Server names a wrong cept Panther, 10.2 server was once Tigger, but it was changed to Jaguar. This app must suck

Here is the URL to the Mactracker website: http://www.mactracker.ca/
Its a great program. Maybe the author had it as 10.2 server - Tigger but he forgot to update it to 10.2 server - Jaguar.

What about mongoose? Now i would buy osx mongoose.
Oi, what happens when apple either finds the need to move on from 10 or runs out of decimals? osXI? or do you think they'll do something more.. better?

I was just thinking about the OS 11/OS XI thing. I would guess that they will call it OS XI. But I wonder how many people call OS X 'os ex' as opposed to 'os ten'? Bacause OS XI would have to be called 'os eleven' on the basis that 'os ex i' sounds stupid.

Just a random thought.

To add to galaga's thought:

I call it "OS ten" because "X" is the Roman numeral for ten. (I love Roman numerals).

When they do come out with OS XI, it should be called "OS eleven".

Here is a thought. When the OS is finally 64 Bit ready. They may change the name to something else ( .i.e Mac OS FP 1.0).
