'v' in Mac OS X version names[edit]

The proper names of the Mac OS X operating system releases have "v" in them, like "Mac OS X v10.0". Apple uses "v10.0" on its web site and in its documentation. Calling it "Mac OS X 10.0" is incorrect. The "X" stands for "10", so "X 10.0" would be redundant. For an example of Apple's use, see [1]. Please discuss at Talk:Mac OS X. - Brian Kendig 03:54, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This is not the most common usage. A simple Google test shows Mac OS X 10.0 is the most common name [2]. —Cantus 19:10, Apr 12, 2005 (UTC)

Comparison to Public Beta[edit]

I'm surprised there's not a section comparing the Public Beta to 10.0. The Apple Logo in the center of the Public Beta's menu bar got moved, and became an "Apple Menu" again, though it's never been the same as its predecessor in pre-OS X versions. Finder windows have also changed a LOT. The toolbar buttons across the top of a Finder window in the Public Beta, I believe got flattened for the 10.0 release. The pull-down menu for which directory you're in - I'm not sure how long that one survived, it was another Openstep holdover. And the three dots under a Dock icon to indicate an open application, also from Openstep, became a black triangle (when did the Dock gain ability to move? 10.1 or 10.2?) --JohnDBuell | Talk 07:35, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Hey there! If you want to add the section you can go ahead =) No one is stopping you and I think it would be a great addition to the article! Just a side note: please increase your use of edit summaries, it makes it a lot easier for people to see what you have done =) TDS (talkcontribs) 15:14, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

USB support[edit]

Did Mac OS X v10.0 support USB? Or, if so, were there problems with it? Many peripheral retail packages omit 10.0 when listing compatible systems. ---Ransom -- 22:37, 16 November 2005 (UTC)


<QUOTE>XNU kernel - the Unix-like kernel was a first for Macintosh operating systems, and was one of the largest changes from a technical stand point in Mac OS X.</QUOTE> What about A/UX? -- 13:31, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:MacosxlogoX1.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:MacosxlogoX1.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I have been using Macs and really love the updates as they roll out. V10 was a great one... We try to only use Mac's at work.</a>

The only operating problem I have with Mac OS X is a few of the softwares. The excel is either harder to use or I am not used to it. For graphics and building websites... there is not any better. I was glad to see more and more software become available on this system and not everyone just making their software for windows. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:29, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
