[Bug 568652] Re: Mac OS X in lower case


Discussion with Godbyk.


<ChrisWoollard> ping godbyk
<godbyk> Hey, ChrisWoollard.
<ChrisWoollard> Hello
<ChrisWoollard> I was having a look at bug https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu-manual/+bug/568652
<ubot2> Launchpad bug 568652 in ubuntu-manual "Mac OS X in lower case (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,Confirmed]
<ChrisWoollard> I don't think Mac OS X should be in small caps. If you look at Apple's website, no reference to OS X is in small caps
<ChrisWoollard> What do you think?
<godbyk> On Apple's website, there's no reference to anything in small caps, afaik.
<ChrisWoollard> Exactly. So i would sticck with there styling if at all possible.
<godbyk> Well, we can't use their site as a data point on style if they're not using small caps at all.
<godbyk> We should be consistent with our own style.
<ChrisWoollard> Whatever the case. Somebody should make an executive desision to get the bug fixed / closed. It has been kicking around for ages.
<godbyk> Agreed.  I'll take a look at it again this afternoon.

Mac OS X in lower case

Status in Ubuntu Manual: Confirmed

Bug description:
"Many applications designed for Microsoft Windows or Mac os x will
not run on Ubuntu"

"Since Ubuntu’s market share is not as substantial as Microsoft’s Windows or
Apple’s Mac os x"

First, I think it should read: "Mac OS X"
Second I would consider calling it "Mac OS"..
