I'm pretty sure there's the saber-toothed tiger in the smilodon category too. That's gonna be faaar to the right. Davidy22[talk] 10:05, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

@davidy: saber-toothed tiger == saber-toothed cat. Same animal, different name. 21:38, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

If I'm not mistaken, Dracorex hogwartsia was specifically named for Hogwarts, so the name isn't disturbingly similar.Kdesltd (talk) 06:13, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

this page is useless without a table of cat names to osx versions

cause where else am i going to go for that information? obviously [explain]xkcd. 22:43, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

I see your sarcasm and raise you one wikitable. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

No one addresses what the Ox problem is - I believe that he could be referring to the fact that all the cool names are taken. Although it could be the strange order? Seems like the mountain lion version wasn't even out? Did he know that this was the name or did he guess? No matter what he did spot a problem since they did stop using cat names.

The version Mountain Lion had been announced in (I believe) February of that year, so he would have known about the name. 03:40, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

I personally interpreted "the OSX problem" as them increasingly struggling to find cat names for their releases which top the previous names in some way. The first three releases were clearly moving up the scale of "which would win in a fight". The fourth takes a step backwards in "would win in a fight" but moves forward in "coolness of name". Then we see a step up in both scales. Then a double step back in coolness of name. Then further progress on coolness of name before finally taking steps backwards in BOTH "coolness of name" and "would win in a fight". -- plugwash

One other problem: cheetahs are the fastest animal on earth. 10.0 Cheetah was SLOW. 18:15, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

The next versions of the OS X were named "Mavericks", "Yosemite" and "El Capitan". No more cats indeed. :-( 09:42, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Really have to disagree with the coolness of the name sort results in this comic. I'd rank them probably as: Lion < Snow Leopard < Leopard < Tiger < Jaguar Zorlax the Mighty'); DROP TABLE users;-- (talk) 17:55, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

"Panther" is an ill-defined term, not only referring to the puma species but large black cats in general (see ) 20:05, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

You can use {{w|Panther to put Panther 02:29, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

I think, the Revolver Ocelot meme made Ocelot cooler, than Cheetah. If you swap those two, you get a route to housecat and lynx. Problem solved. 04:17, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
I agree. Although that would be a reference to a videogame, a joy unavailable to Mac OS users. 05:46, 8 June 2024 (UTC)

Whoever called it a mountain "lion" has obviously never seen a real lion. Lions are enormous animals, that tiny felid isn't worthy of the name "lion". -- The Cat Lady (talk) 09:50, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Still a deadly surprise. 05:46, 8 June 2024 (UTC)

This comic pretty much lacks serval and caracal 05:46, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
