The total geek in me freaked out a little bit this morning with the image that Apple used for the media event that has been announced for October 20th. The image, seen above, shows a lion behind a revolving Apple logo.
So, it looks like the new title is OS 10.7 Lion!
Something tells me we’re in for quite a treat. The last update was Snow Leopard a little over a year ago, which was only a small upgrade to Leopard which came out in 2007. Since then, Apple’s released a whole new mobile operating system and has taken the mobile devices market by storm. I expect A LOT of iOS and Mac OS integration.
October 20th can’t get here soon enough!
UPDATE: Some Apple blogs are saying that the preview is actually going to be Mac OS 11 and not OSX 10.7. This may line up with 2011, and the fact that OS X came out 10 years ago, and it may be time to move away from that marketing. Innnnnteresting.
