For a while, Apple was naming their operating system releases after wild cats … Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, etc.
But, in what was indoubtedly a typographical error, they went from cats to cattle with the name Mavericks. So theoretically, the next
operating system should have been some adjective with Mavericks … Lazy Mavericks, Cool Mavericks, etc.
Instead, they went off in another direction altogether, calling their upcoming release Yosemite, which is either a national park or a
boisterous Warner Bros. cartoon character. We’ll have to wait to see if the following version is called Yellowstone or Elmer.
Or perhaps it will be something else entirely, like Mozzarella.
