After the successful release of Mac OS X Mavericks, Apple Inc. now is all the way ready for the release of another successor in the series – well, this is not what I have to say, but the speculation does.

Will the assigning number be Mac OS X 10.10, Mac OS X 11, or Mac OS 11? Well, until the company officials publicize it, I only have to say, keep imagining how the newer versions will look like and when it is going to release to public officially.’
