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


I discussed this issue with thorwil on IRC a bit.  As he points out, "OS
X capitals rip holes into our page".

I've attached a couple PDFs that demonstrate the difference between
small-caps and uppercase "OS X".

Since the uppercase versions of acronyms are so jarring, we've decided
to stick with the small-caps version -- including "OS X".

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"..
