    i have been thinking about the mac softwares and noticing that they are all about cats not cats cats but those wild cats like
    Jaguar,Leopard,Tiger,Panther etc.
    why did apple pick these names?
    and is there a cheeta?

    lol, i can see it now
    "OS Lygar"

    but, on topic, i honestly have no idea
    maybe just for aesthetic reasons?
    like, just cause a cat appeals more than
    something called windows '98
    or windows XP pro?
    that's just an opinion though

    lol, and a new question
    is there ANY relation between the cat and the word "apple"?
    i think not
    what was apple smoking...

    What would be funny is if they named them by apples. eg:

    Mac OS X Granny Smith, or
    Mac OS X Golden Delicious

    xD

    Anyways, they have named their Operating System's after cats for reasons I don't know, but they are keeping the theme going with Mac OS X Snow Leopard next (aka 10.6)
