Mac OS X "OS X 10.9, which is internally codenamed 'Cabernet', will focus on various 'power-user' enhancements and take core features from iOS, according to our sources. Unlike operating system updates such as OS X Leopard and OS X Lion, OS X 10.9 will likely not be an overhauled approach to how the operating system feels and functions." Features for power users and features from iOS? Seems like an oxymoron. Still, if they manage to finally fix the Finder and Spaces, I'll be happy.

Is this when everybody hits up Wikipedia to find out what type of cat a Cabernet is?


Not until you said so ;) But it will probably get another name for release - they don't always use a cat name internally in early development. 10.0 was called Cyan before it became Cheetah for example.

Was 10.0 actually called Cheetah publicly? I only became aware that 10.0, which I used extensively was codenamed Cheetah after Puma and "Jagwyre" (sic) had been released.

Also, 10.0 for all it's awesomeness was slower than a dead frozen snail. Calling it after the worlds fastest land animal is a bit of an own goal.

I'm just waiting for the first pundit to call it "kaber - net" rather than "cab-a-nay".
