Mac OS X Names. Very annoying. Just useng the version number❗

why they do that? Partly, a name is easier to remember. But mostly, it's for marketing purposes. Because, a name, can give people something to talk about. Am sure there's statistics in market research field that shows that people are more likely to talk about something when it has a name than just version number.

Sun Microsystems is the worst trangressor here.
