The Future of the Macintosh Operating System
So Tiger is just days away and this has got me thinking. System 7.5 was the biggest upgrade to System 7 and MacOS 8.5 was the biggest upgrade to MacOS 8. iTunes was also upgraded in this fashion. There are other examples as well. Will this pattern be continued with MacOS X 10.5? I know that this also was usually a jump in numbering scheme (ex. There was no System 7.4 or MacOS 8.4). Will there even be an MacOS X 10.5? Will this be the big leap to MacOS XI 11.0? What major changes in the Operating System will warrant a jump to MacOS XI 11.0? Is there some sort of semi-large jump in Operating System technology that would come somewhere in-between 10 and 11?
