OSX version 10.10, briefly known as "Weed", was introduced as the eleventh major release of OS X by Apple Senior VP Craig Federighi on June 2 at the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Background[]

Federighi had previously introduced OS X Sea Lion as a joke during the WWDC 2013 keynote address before adopting California landmarks for the name of OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" and future releases.[1]

During the introduction of OS X 10.10 at WWDC 2014, he jokingly brought up the real-life locations of "Oxnard", "Rancho Cucamonga", and "Weed" proposed by the "crack product marketing team" before settling on "Yosemite".[2]

Reception[]

The WWDC audience cheered in support of the joke announcement, which then became a trending topic on social media.[3][4] Federighi revisited cannabis-themed humor at WWDC 2017 with the introduction of macOS High Sierra.[5][6][7]
