...these:

OS X 10.8 "Snow Lion"
OS X 10.9 "Mountain Lion"

Snow Lion as it both harkens back to Snow Leopard & is a "celestial animal" of Tibet, making it appropriate to Steve Jobs' Buddhism - and Mountain Lion is another name for Cougar, a well-known colloquialism for an older lady who's still got it seems appropriate for what will presumably be the last version of OS X before something completely new is brought out for the Mac platform!

Maybe... Just seems like it would be appropriate to finish-out the run of OS X with all cat names...

Discuss away! Undoubtably folks will reply with "cat" names for upcoming OS versions...so the links were included to bring folks "up to speed" with what's already been creatively suggested.

Thought occurs, maybe there'll be one last version, in honour of all those old console games set in the year "20XX":

OS X 10.X "Nyan Cat!"

IIRC Steve did say that they used Lion because it is the "King of the Jungle". As such the implication is that "Lion" may be the last iteration of OSX and we may see OS XI (11) after that. The truth of any of that remains to be seen however.

That's why I was thinking that if OS X does go all the way up to 10.9 they might keep the Lion name & just add to it...

Of course, only time will tell...

Maybe the next version will be OSXX Dos Equis and they will do a series of beer names.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

That would be quite appropriate to the 2009 Star Trek movie; where the Enterprise bridge had a very Apple-inspired look to it, while the engine room was a Budweiser brewery!

I can see the logic in that. We got to get to OS 11 sometime...and there's certainly no rule that says we have to go all the way to OS 10.9 before getting to 11.0.
