What is Mac OS X (OSX)?


Mac OS X or, as it is commonly referred to, OSX is the operating system that ships with all Apple Mac computers. It is comparable to Microsoft’s Windows or a Linux system.

Versions of Mac OS X have historically been named after big cats:

Although that changed with the latest edition of Mac OS X v10.9 – released October 22, 2013 – named Mavericks.

While this is not always important for translation, developers may mention their software “runs on Lion but not Leopard”. These names are comparable to “Windows XP” vs “Windows 7”. Don’t translate the cat names of OS X.
