Mac OS X Mountain Lion
Avoidance to misunderstandings. The animal depicted in the logo of the new Mac OS X Lion Mountain is not really a “Mountain Lion” (though the literal translation is accurate in itself), but to make it more understandable to move on to his translation more generic: Puma .
After you have verified and certified that “Firefox” is not a fox on fire, but a red panda , it must now make a new distinction.
The “Mountain Lion”, in fact, is nothing if not a local branch of the species of Puma, whose name takes many variations according to the reference zone (including also “cougar”, similar to the translation “cougar”) . The origin of “Mountain Lion” probably derives from physical animal, which makes the Puma like a female lion.
Curious is the fact that the species itself is a close relative than with a cat like a cat than with the leopard (the animal used by Apple in past editions of the operating system), but apparently is not about aggression that Cupertino aims orientate their release.
Curious, moreover, is the derivation of the Italian dialect “Puma”. People living in northern Italy, in fact, the redundancy notice of the fact that both “Apple” (in English) as “Puma” (in dialect) mean “apple.”
