10.3 or 11?
Authored by: lettertiep on Jun 24, '03 08:50:09AM

I found a strange thing on the Apple Website:

at the "panther sneak preview" site, Panther gets the version-number 10.3.
However on the Press photo's, the CD-label says "Mac OS X Version 11"

???????

10.3 or 11?
Authored by: truhe on Jun 24, '03 12:02:14PM

since the first release of mac os x apple was unable to name it properly:

MacOS 9.0
MacOS 9.2
MacOS 10.0
MacOS 10.2
MacOS 10.3

or

MacOS 9.2
Mac OS X
Mac OS X 2
Mac OS X 3

Apple is using "Mac OS X 10.2" which of course means that I'm running version 10.2 of Mac OS X. This is obviously wrong. "Mac OS X Version 11" is also wrong.

While the current Jaguar version is "Mac OS X 2.7" or "Mac OS 10.2.7" the correct name for Panther would be "Mac OS X 3" or Mac OS 10.3 or Mac OS XI.

So whatever Apple means with "Mac OS X Version 11", "Mac OS X 10.2" - these products do not exist.
