Many Apple pundits believed that Lion is the ultimate in cat series, and therefore thought that Apple would start with another animal family, such as snakes or birds, for it's next release.

Do you think it is a fail, because the Lion is the most superior cat. And a Mountain Lion first, would have made more sense.


Don't take this too seriously. Just a thought. ;)

Garfield is superior. Unfortunately, Apple can't reinvent it.

I would argue that mountain lions are superior. Lions have to hunt in packs. Mountain Lions don't. If I was in a 20 square mile fenced off area, I would be more worried about the mountain lion than the lion.

The only thing I don't like about them using Mountain Lion is that now they can't use cougar or more importantly, puma. OS X Puma!!!!

I have read about this animal before, what an incredible creature! Imagine coming around a corner and walking into that! At full maturity he will get to about 12 feet in length and weigh in the region of 1250 lbs! That's more than a half an metric tonne of muscle and sinew, wow!

Mountain Lions are just cougars. That gives us the impression of an over-the-hill OS lusting after young male nerdlings.

Clearly we needed to go for Ligers here. These half-Lion half-Tigers are bigger than either parent.

Edit: Too late for the Liger reference... :(

I think that the next version should be called OSX Tabby Cat.
