      Always been for me, OSX, unless I'm on about which version then it goes '10.4.8'

      Wonder if they'll go OSXI as when they need to?

      Osx

      I was under the impresion the reason it was called OSX was that one of steve jobs previous positions before coming back to apple,

      Was at a company that was running an operating system called neXt that was unix based.

      The way it is spelled was the logo ie neXt hense the X

      10 was the number of the OS,
      so all revisions of the OS come back to the old apple way ie 10.1 10.2 and so on.

      apart from running a small animation team that he funded and set up which consisted of 4 people in the begining 11 years ago and has grown a little bit and is now known as Pixar ,
      which is why steve jobs is now on the disney board.

      Busy man.

      Mind you apple do make great machines and i have one lol.

      I thought George Lucas had a hand in setting up Pixar within the LucasArts umbrella, and ended up selling it off...?

      steve jobs

      flogster yes he did, the term set up maybe wrong,
      but lucas hollywood and disney and the like couldnt see it being viable to making full length computer animation films.

      Jobs looked a bit deeper into it and bought it for 10million

      Re: OSX or OS10?

      No mate he isnt,
      and i hope steve and Jonathan Ive stay with apple for a lot longer.

      Apple is still way out there in terms of machines big or small,
      that are built and designed to not only look good.

      They are built and designed to work good as they make the hardware and software.

      Long may it continue.
