Yes, very amusing.

But it did bring to mind one thing I find kind of cutesy in an annoying sort of way: Mac's names for theis OSs. It's all very well and good for us to talk about panthers and tigers and jaguars, but I just can NOT keep track of which is which. I wish they would just stick to the numerical naming system so that I can immediately tell the relationship between 2 OSs. Know what I mean? I'm just an ignorant biologist, I could tell you about the cats' taxonomic relationships, but MAC does not follow that in their OS evolution pathway, so I'm often confused. :P

Well, I can see your point. But every one of their releases also has a number. If you read, you'll see that Leopard is OS X 10.5. Tiger is 10.4, Panther was 10.3, Jaguar was 10.2, and Puma was 10.1. Oh, and 10.0 was Cheetah. The whole list can be found at http://applepedia.com/Apple_Product_Codenames

yes, but who refers to Leopard, OS 10.5? No, they talk about Leopard or Tiger.

And the last bit implies doing icky research. waste of time, that is. :P

Ok, I guess I'm the odd one for knowing them all. I typed them all _before_ adding that link. *grin*
