The release name of OS X 10.11 is…

With WWDC just around the corner, we have a competition going on at work as to who can accurately pick the release name for version 10.11 of OS X (pronounced /ˌ ɛs ˈtɛn/;[11] originally Mac OS X  see – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OS_X).

For years and years OS X was named after large cats.  It began in 2001 with 10.0 Cheetah and progressed through with each release.  10.2 was Jaguar, that was the first official version of OS X I personally used day in and day out. Through the years, other cat names followed, Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion.

Well, Apple ran out of cool cat names and the theme changed in 2013 to California state attractions, the first of which was OS X 10.9 Mavericks.  A year later OS X 10.10 Yosemite followed suit and next week OS X 10.11 will be announced – presumably with a new shiny name.

As a result, the betting is on.  Here are some of the potential names we’ve come up with:

  • Redwood
  • Mammoth
  • California
  • Big Sur
  • Pacific
  • Diablo
  • Miramar
  • Rincon
  • El Cap
  • Redtail
  • Condor
  • Grizzly
  • Farallon
  • Tiburon
  • Monterey
  • Skyline
  • Shasta
  • Sierra
  • Mojave
  • Sequoia
  • Ventura
  • Sonoma

I’ve selected Condor and feel like I have about a 2% chance of getting it correct.  What’s your pick?

    El Capitan it is. Unfortunately, we had no winners in our pool of guessers.

    I think we’ll all stay away from Vegas this weekend.
