Will there ever be an OS XI? Or what?

Will 10.9 be followed by 10.10, and so on? How long will it continue? Does this one go to eleven someday? (Ooh, I can see the ads now, featuring Spinal Tap.)

Funny you mentioned that. I've started wondering the same thing. The ads seem like they could be hilarious ("Oh, you only go to 8? Ours goes to 11...")

My prediction...yes, the marriage of iOS and OS X (like Microsoft just did) will be OS 11

I predict they'll, finally, jettison the, confusing, Latin number scheme.
I mean, who needs to spend 15 - 20 seconds figuring out a number....like Super Bowl XLVIII?

It's been so long I hear people calling it OS EX all the time.

Well, let's see. Since they migrated completely from PowerPC to iNtel which made no difference in full release version I reckon it will be hard to think of a design to make a change out of X even if the design was in 3d.

Now officially 10.2, as an example, is completely incompatible with 10.8 which in itself is truly odd.

It's natural to see three letters in a row, and assume it's an "eks".

It's one thing to see Super Bowl X (word, word, Latin number) and understand what it should be, it's another to expect people to switch gears after saying "oh-ess" (letter, letter) and then pronounce a number (when they see the X).

Yes, I know, years ago it was OS IX, but tens of millions of new users never used that system
