With OS X Mavericks, Apple ended the era of naming their desktop operating system after big cats (Puma, Lion, Leopard,...). OS X Mavericks is the first in a series of naming conventions focused on areas around California. Mavericks is a surfing town on the coast of California, near Apple head quarters. This new naming goes nicely with the new signature Apple recently launched: “Designed by Apple in California”.
So what is next? Isn't that always the question after the launch of a new product passes? What will the name of the next OS X release be? Here's a few we thought of and a few we thought Apple should stay away from...
OS X Names to Avoid
- OS X Compton
- OS X Death Valley
- OS X Newell (location of World War II Japanese internment camp)
- OS X Weed
- OS X Rancho Cucamonga
- OS X Schwarzenegger-Shriver
Possible OS X Names
- OS X Beverly Hills
- OS X OC
- OS X By The Bay
- OS X Yosemite
- OS X Palm Springs
- OS X Newport
Of course there are many other possibilities. We'd like to hear what your ideas might be.
