Some surfer dudes were out doing what they do along with their dog, Maverick. The dog kept going into the water which was unsafe for dog and man alike so they tied him up on shore. The place where the dudes were surfing hadn't been named so they decided to name it Mavericks in honor of their dog. The plural came about because of the topography of the land. The surfer dudes' nickname stuck and people just started referring to that area as Mavericks.

Hence the name.

The Wikipedia article I linked to has a mention of OS X 10.9. The line may have been added after I posted.

I think it's a great idea for naming, with some implications. The naming possibilities are endless. The implication is that Apple plans many more updated to OS X.

I'm going to really like having iBooks on my Mac. (I haven't read anything about multitouch iBooks.)
My wife, who has two monitors for her MacBook Pro, will love the new multiple-monitor features.
iCloud Keychain could be an easy-to-use replacement for other password wallet apps. We'll have to wait to see how it actually works.
Finder Tabs will be good for people working on small monitors. (At least if you can drag from one tab to another.)
