Cars, Guitars, Thinking and Guts.

We all know that Mac has carefully chosen the names of their operating systems over the years, what you don’t know is that there’s a whole slew of names that didn’t make the cut and were nixed from coming to market. A top-secret source from Cupertino (who shall not be named) has provided us with this list of Mac OS names that never made it to market.:

  • Glow Worm
  • Sloth (or 3-toed Sloth)
  • Snow Lemur
  • Sea Cucumber
  • Chihuahua
  • Big Dog (or Big Dogg)
  • Slug
  • Cephalopod
  • Ice Lamb

Do you know of any other names that didn’t make it?  Please post below.
