    Hm. Maybe Ross should have trademarked that.

    As I understand it, Catalina is a generalised C environment, just like GCC. Catalyst is some form of libraries. They are open source. Ross just implement this for the P1, and is now targeting P2.

    Since these have been around for so long, it’s unusual Apple have chosen these names as MacOS code names.

    BTW Catalina was an airplane (seaplane?) family/manufacturer. Not sure about Catalyst, but I’m sure google could help.

  • Apple names its macOS (Mac operating system official name) versions with names of California natural areas of interest (Yosemite, Mavericks, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, etc...). It's a nod to Apple's "Designed by Apple in California" labeling on its products. Although most products are built in China, the design and software development ownership resides in California (with contributions from other states, of course).
