they could have called it kitten basket and it would have been the same OS so i am not sure why anyone would care what it is called.

Seriously? We're debating whether 'Mountain Lion' is a failure of a name for the next version of OS X? I might as well call Windows 'Charms' a failure in Windows 8. Not sure how that even represents what the feature is, but then again, it doesn't really matter. Windows 8 and OS X Mountain Lion will still likely be popular. The name is irrelevant. Except in a nonsense debate like this.

I really usually don't respond like this but I can't see why this sort of debate is nothing more useful than to get people chatting about something.

Although the 'cat' part might be redundant.

How is debating the name of an OS any more "irrelevant" than its logo?

"Do you like the Windows 8 logo?" Thread

I'd need to see it in context to really come to some sort of proper conclusion personally. I do think Microsoft need to make the logo match the simplistic and elegant UI Metro is. I don't know about the angle of the 4 "windows" to the left of the branding name, perhaps. Then again the logo looks a bit fuzzy that Microsoft detailed in their blog.




Here is my twist on it

That looks pretty cool :). Although Microsoft wouldn't likely use a colour theme like that anyway. Looks cool though :).


Just asking, I'm actually sure you'll have a personal answer that makes sense from your point of view, I personally just find this to be amusing, as the gap isn't that wide and here you come complaining when "[you] really usually don't respond like this [...]".

Really, bro, just wondering. :/

If you consider going from OS X Lion to OS X Mountain Lion a naming fail, surely going from Windows 3.11 to Windows 98 to Windows 7 is an even bigger fail.

EDIT ybrett23 beat me to it. :p

I should of known I'd get a response like this. We could endlessly debate about anything, so it's no point me adding anything to respond to what you say. Come on, you see it everywhere on any forum or site. I could add a response here but sure enough you'd respond back with something else. There's no point in responding with an answer to you. People argue over the most idiotic things on sites like these simply because of disagreements. I can guarantee if I made a response to your question you'd sharply respond back to me. I'm not going to reply to you again in this thread in the case you reply to me here. I had no intention to insult anyone for "debating about nonsense". Enough people cause arguments by their ignorance; I don't want to do that too. And I can totally understand what you're saying and why. I did respond to that thread with my current opinion on the newly announced Windows 8 logo, while saying here that there's no point in debating over the name of OS X and saying it is a "failure". You can come to your own conclusions (you obviously think I was being a hypocrite). Okay, that's fine :).
