OS XI?

OS X 10.10?

OS X 11.0?

OS X 11.1?

OS X Vista?

As long as it's not OS X ME, they're probably ok.

(And OS X 10.10, 10x10x10 = 1000, 1000 = 1 millenium... hopefully jinxes aren't good at math.)

And at least those are better than the software I deal with at work.  I'm running version 2011.4_35.27 while other folks are busy validating 2013.1_34.21 for production work.  You know you're doing something when major-rev.minor-rev can reset every month, and you still wind up in double-digits of each.

Though I suppose if every downloadable patch to Windows was a new revision, they'd need to use scientific notation.

2 I don't put it past Apple to go with Up Arrow notation or something really "inside baseball" but "looks cool" now. 

Actually Mac OS Arrow could last them for another decade.

3 Let's not hate on Me too much:  bundled shovelware was the main problem.
I had an HP that had all kinds of problems, including a complete inability to do https.  I was in the beta, and they gave us a free copy at the end, so I wiped the machine and reinstalled from my own CD, getting rid of all the bundled garbage, and all the problems went away.  Plus, having been in the beta, I was used to seeing it work right.

4 Testing, testing, can I comment?  Trying to answer your question over at Wonderduck's, and it keeps timing out on me..

5 OS Tenten? One of its big new features being summoning ninja weapons on demand from iCloud?

6 iCloud would be useful suddenly.  I like that idea!

And, who knew someone would work in a Naruto reference.

7 I saw it right away. The problem is, Ten-ten is a very minor character.

8 What comes after OS X 10.9? "iOS8".

Apple seems determined to turn their computers into iPads-with-keyboards, glued together by a second-rate cloud. Today's fun news is that if you upgrade to 10.9, you can no longer sync contacts and calendars directly from your Mac to your iPhone; they have to go through the cloud.

9 I have never "synched" my contacts or calendars either directly or indirectly, unless you count transferring my mail with rsync, since it automatically includes all the "contacts". Kids these days.
