Mac OS X 10.10 after 10.9 or Mac OS XI?

In the far future when we get to Mac OS X 10.9 do you think apples will do 10.10 or go to Mac OS XI? I think apple will go to Mac OS XI. What do you think? Post your prediction!

Probably iOS X.

By then, I think the Mac will have been somewhat assimilated into iOS, as per Craig's prediction.

This is too easy, yet people make a big deal out of nothing. If there is a 10.9, it will be followed numerically by 10.10 without a doubt. Mac OS X is a product name. The versioning (not to be confused with the product name) began with 10.0 and each major release increments it. Thus 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, etc.

I really want a MacBook Touch or an iMac Touch. If that ever happens we'll want the iOS. Actually iOS is based off OSX, but some things change on the technical side (programmer zone).

The user interfaces are completely different. It would be hard to merge the two.

People find the iOS interface a lot more intuitive than OS X because that's the way iOS was made.

Really I think that OS X will morph into the new UI, not be assimilated. Maybe an iMac touch would look just like an iOS, except with more apps available at a time -- say 6 tiled apps. The keyboard/mouse/trackpad would still be there, but the UI would be tap-tappity-tap and not click-clickety-click.
