OS X 10.9 Longcat [Humor]

OS X 10.9 Longcat

Now that OS X 10.9 is regularly appearing in usage logs, we thought we’d take a stab at the naming convention. How about OS X Longcat?

Yup, we’re bored today and diving straight into the pool of Longcat memes, and there’s nothing better than boredom and some Pixelmator fun to create something totally stupid. Don’t worry, we’ll be back to our normal useful selves soon here.

On a more serious note, what do you think the next version of OS X will be called? There have been some pretty hilarious suggestions on our Facebook page

    Hmmm, I think 10.9 should be called “Polecat.” Definately lethal and sends out that message of “don’t mess with me.” :)

  2. CK says:

    I guess the naming rules of OSX are all those animals on top of the food chain and very lethal. I would bet if those big cat names are exhausted, new names will come from either eagle family in the sky or shark family under the sea.

    iCloud OS.

    As it’ll be yet another incremental upgrade

    How about – OSX Mounting Lion

    with the front cover something like this…


  10. Rich W. says:

    It will be The New OS X … because I think that dude is still on the marketing staff.

  11. Daz says:

    I’m pulling for Cowardly Lion.

  12. Tom says:

    Please.. we still have Ocelot, Lynx, Cougar, Bobcat, Caracal…. and of course the Clouded Leopard…. but they might be saving that one up until iCloud works better…

  13. Matt says:

    OS X Meowmix is scheduled to blend 10.8 and 10.9 seamlessly.

  14. Brennan says:

    I’m kind of confused as to how the tenth iteration of OSX will be displayed… OSX 10.10? OSXI (11)? I have no idea. :o

    OS X 10.9 Puss in Boots

  16. Mister Apple says:

    still waiting for some jailbreak news …

  17. pox minimus says:

    Apple should switch to canine names: afterall, OS X and the entire Mac platform is going to the dogs. (It’s humor, relax fanboys).

  18. Pippox0 says:

    Next os x 10.9 will be sea lion … An OS that’s swim on the Cloud where the others drown !!

  19. Graham says:

    Obviously we’ve had leopard to snow leopard and lion to mountain lion so it could be OS X Sea lion !

  20. parakeet says:

    ha haha

  21. David says:

    Ha. I may be an outlier but I think Apple will abandon the cat names. We are in a transition stage as Apple edges Macs closer to iOS, sooner than later it may just be iOS X, iOS Pro, or OS XI anyway.
