OS X is dead


[link to this post]
 
Well, nearly:
After 15 years of large cats and a few California landmarks, Apple's OS X is getting a new name that's actually an old name. Apple's senior VP of software engineering, Craig Federighi announced that, henceforth, the operating system on desktop and laptops will be called macOS.

The first version of the operating system will be called Sierra and will be available today to developers with a public beta available in July. The gold master will launch in the fall.
So the way is open (in effect) for OS 11... can't have Microsoft using a higher OS version number than Apple tongue

How long are my 2009 24" iMac and my mid-2012 15" MacBook Pro going to be able to take the OS upgrades?
