Mountain Lion - back to the past

21/02/12 | by admin [mail] | Categories: Software, Mac, OSX

I must say that the naming of 10.8 struck me as a little odd in the context of past names.

Mountain Lions are in fact the same species as Pumas (and arguably Panthers). This requires a closer look.

10.0 - Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)
10.1 - Puma (Puma concolor)
10.2 - Jaguar (Panthera onca)
10.3 - Panther (Puma concolor OR Panthera pardus)
10.4 - Tiger (Panthera tigris)
10.5 - Leopard (Panthera pardus)
10.6 - Snow Leopard (Panthera uncia or Uncia uncia)
10.7 - Lion (Panthera leo)
10.8 - Mountain Lion (Puma concolor)

So, a cynic might say that superficially 10.8 is an improvement on 10.7 but is really 5 (or 7) steps back.
