As someone with minimal experience of the Mac O/S, please can someone give me a quick rundown of the various code names and their meaning - such as panther and tiger.
Regards
Echo

Is this a new concept for OS X? Did OS 9 have similar names?

Actually, for 10.0 and 10.1 it had only been an Apple-internal codename, they weren't advertised as 10.0 Cheetah or 10.1 Puma. Only since 10.2 they use it also for advertising, and since then it has become part of the official name.

The later versions of the Classic Mac OS had musical names

Mac OS 9 - Sonata
Mac OS 8.5 - Allegro
Mac OS 8 - Tempo (actual release)
Copland - cancelled; would have been Mac OS 8
Gershwin - never developed; was cancelled along with Copland
Rhapsody - never released; project eventually became Mac OS X.

A few versions had names based on the color of the index cards used in planning the feature sets - Red, Pink, and Blue. Only Mac System 7.0 (Blue, also called Big Bang) actually made it to market. I think Red became Copland.

All of these were true code names; as Avalon said, they were internal names used by the developers until Jaguar made them public.

I was under the impression Copland was the 'pink' project.

At least the Mac OS 8.0 (7.7 ;-) ) we ended up with looked like Copland would have done. and OS 9.0 was nearly just 8.7.

Wikipedia probably has something on this, it has everything!
