With the new millenium, Apple began to replace its classic operating system with a new one based on Unix. The new software was dubbed Mac OS X, where "X" is the Roman numeral for 10 (it also echoes the "x" in Unix.). Each major update was given a number and a code name. Originally, the code names were for internal use, but eventually they were used for marketing purposes as well. Below is a list of the versions, code names and the year released.
