    Next OS X name?
    What do you think the next Mac OS X will be called? I have a few suggestions:

    Cheetah - because it will be faster than anything we've ever seen.

    Sabertooth - because it will be unlike anything on this planet.

    Or Ocelot - because it is just fun to say.

    What do you think?

    They already used "Cheetah" that was Mac OS 10.0!

    I'm still a little confused as to whether it's been used.

    I know one of the MacWorld writers once referred to 10.6 as Lynx, probably about a year ago...as in, "When Lynx (10.6) comes out..." or something. Wish I could find that issue!!!

    Not unless we've run out of cat names!

    Maybe with 11.0 is will be "dogs"...woof woof!

    - 11.0 "Poodle"
    - 11.1 "****shu" (can I say ****shu )
    - 11.2 "Pinscher"
    - 11.3 "Beagle"
    - 11.4 "Pug"
    - 11.5 "Spitz"
    - 11.6 "Terrier"

    Doesn't seem to have the "meow" as the cat names!
