Mac OS X 10.9 Pops Up In Our Server Logs

Mac OS X 10.9 Pops Up In Our Server Logs
Our friend Roman Zavřel over at emailed us to let us know that he’d spotted the first initial appearances of OS X 10.9 in his server logs. We checked ours, and what do you know: we’ve also gotten a handful of visitors reporting the next version of OS X as their operating system.

With OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion released just a few months ago, it would normally be too early to see the next version of OS X popping up in server logs, but with Mountain Lion, Apple has apparently moved to a yearly release schedule for their Mac operating system.

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what Apple will call OS X 10.9? I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Space Lion and an official Voltron partnership.

    Can’t that be faked?

    I just hope this is a release that compels me to upgrade. I’m telling you, if the improvements are “Better iOS App Integration,” I’m flying to California and give someone a judy chop…lol

    Missed op to extend the leopard series with: Clouded Lepoard, and the tiger series with Bengal Tiger.

    Opportunity for tic toc naming within the big cat convention still exists with:
    Jaguar / Black Jaguar
    Panther / Black Panther (not to be confused w the radical political org.)

    And what, pray tell, is 11.7 ?!

    Space Lion? WTH?! John, you don’t get it. It’s supposed to be the name of a cat species.

  • Aaron

    I think they could go with OS X 10.9 Cheetah

    Cheetah was the code name for Mac OS X 10.0.
