    I can't...I just can't...

    As far as the name goes, they could call it Hookie Pookie La La Bologna Pants...as long as it runs well and adds new features, I simply do not care AT ALL what the name of the OS is.

    I'll put this out there though, I've got $10 that says we'll see OS X "Tahoe" or "Big Sur" within the next few OS updates.
    Wouldn't expect you to understand considering your avi

    You do realize that "El Capitan" is the name of the iconic vertical rock formation inside Yosemite National Park, don't you? SMH
    Doesn't change my opinion

    Not surprised. Just wanted to clarify that Apple, "a company with no Latin representation" didn't just randomly decide to make up some Hispanic name for their new release of OS X.

    Just another example of political correctness (real or imagined) run amok. Other than than, I have no comment. SMFH

    Not that representation has any bearing on product branding, but Eduardo Cue is Cuban, and he's one of the most prominent faces of Apple. What I do know is Apple has no native Americans among its senior management, so naming OS X Yosemite is definitely offensive. Same goes for felines.

    Personally I'd be stoked if they decided to name 10.19-10.28 after world foods. OS X Phở and OS X Bnh M, let's make it happen.

    Oh I understood it, it's just ridiculous...the reality is, I don't think you understood, even a little, what the name of the OS represented...but you'll never admit that (even if it's clear as day to everyone else in this thread). But knowing that YOU know you didn't have a clue is satisfying, and pretty funny too.

    The lack of big cat representation among Apple's senior leadership is no joking matter.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure somehow who realized what El Capitn was wouldn't have said, "they should have just called it captain or something"

    To be honest, I didn't even know what the name represented. I didn't even know that Mavericks is a location in California. Color me embarrassed.

    Don't be embarrassed...not having the information isn't something to be embarrassed about, it only becomes embarrassing when you don't have the information and then, out of left field, you try and attribute the name to some kind of racial issue. At that point you move from simply uneducated to full blown stupidity.

    Coming from California, I think I have a slightly good reason to be embarrassed though. In my defense, I have been gone for eight years.

    They can call it tomato soup as long as it isn't a mess.
