David (my 15 year old son) argues that Mac OS 11 will be the next version after Mac OS X Lion. He writes:
“After Lion is released, I think that Apple will go from Mac OS X to Mac OS XI or Mac OS 11.
Why? My reason is, what is Apple going to do next if they don’t go to Mac OS 11? After you have Lion, the “king of the jungle”, what do you go to next? One possibility could have been Tiger, but Apple already did that. What else can you go to? You could go back down, and go to… say… pussycat, but it doesn’t quite seem to fit.
If Mac OS 11 is released next, I wonder what Apple will call it? Mac OS 11, Mac OS XI, or something else? If it is Mac OS 11, I can imagine a video with the “X” splitting and forming the “11″
Another question is, will Apple have names for the versions, similar to Lion, Snow Leopard, or Leopard? What could they do? “
What do you think? David would love to hear your perspective.
