Poll Results: Teneration X

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: Teneration X -- Apple has made it clear that the official pronunciation of the X in Mac OS X is "Ten," and not "Ex." But it's going to be interesting to see if Apple backs down on that over time, since a full 53 percent of the 1,300 respondents to last week's poll claim they most commonly say "Mac OS Ex" when talking about Apple's forthcoming operating system. Apple will face an uphill battle in insisting on proper pronunciation, but at least the confusion inspired Shannon Spires to post an "X on X" spoof of the famous Abbott and Costello "Who's on First?" sketch to TidBITS Talk.
