    Phoronix: Tux, Say Hi To Apple's macOS "Sierra"

    At WWDC, Apple just announced that OS X is being renamed to macOS. That renaming of their desktop OS comes after weeks of rumors that Apple would be going with the new macOS name. Besides announcing the name change, they also lifted the lid on "Sierra" as their annual update to the desktop stack...

        Mac OS -> Mac OS X -> OS X -> macOS. Wow, they do a loop. «This is a revolution.»

          No wonder their HQ is on the Infinite Loop.

          Also, does that mean that this is technically Mac OS 11?

            Is Microsoft going to follow suit and become just WinDOS, and then just DOS for a shortname?

              This page references an "OS X 10.12", but it may not be final, especially since the "OS X" part of it will change.

                Wonder if they'll finally update OpenGL support past 4.1 or add Vulkan support. If they were going to support Vulkan (instead of going it alone with their Metal path) we'd hear about it at WWDC now.

                  Yup, Here I am.

                  Eff Apple, and eff their sick elitist ideology. You wanna be a capitalist, because that's just how you roll, at least do it Microsoft style. It's more honest about who it is, and far less disrespectful to the user. Apple is a hipster chic elitist, Ayn Rand-ian egoist, community destroying, neo-liberal threat to society. Basically the Vice magazine of technology.

                  ... O and eff Jobs, he was innovative on marketing, and consumer money extraction, and pushing the limits of how far our economic system promotes sociopaths. He is the modern Edison, who ripped off real geniuses like Tesla, but we must worship him to maintain the myth of the Übermensch.
