File this squarely in the “take it with a grain of salt” category, but I just received a tip from an Apple Employee that says:
“Mac OS Leopard name changed to Mac OS Now to indicate a leap in its development rather then just hinting on a small update”
You guys know how I feel about all the rumors floating around with nothing to back them up…and I normally wouldn’t even post something like this, but I thought it might spark some interesting conversation….
Because it raises and interesting question….are the cat names getting old? I don’t really think Leopard needs a name change, but I do think the cat thing is starting to drag a bit. OS X is feeling kind of “stale” these days…not to say that it isn’t the best OS out there…because it is…it just hasn’t really had that face lift that I think it needs just yet…and I’m hoping that Leopard will be it…and I wouldn’t be opposed to a name change, but something about “Mac OS Now” just sounds a little too Microsoft to me…what do you think?
UPDATE: As suspected, this is complete crap…
