Like many technology companies, Apple employs 'code names' for various projects (for example, earlier versions of Mac OS and related projects were named after American composers: Gershwin, Copland, etc.). The Mac OS X project started with version 10.0, code named "Cheetah." 10.1 was known internally as "Puma." By the time 10.2 'Jaguar" was nearing release, the big cat names had practically become common knowledge among the Mac community, and Apple's marketing started including the names officially as part of the released product.
