    If OSX isn't really "oh-ess-X" but instead OS 10, Does that mean that this should be considered Flash one-thousand and ten?

    Can this really be that huge a leap from Version 5?

    Or maybe it's Flash1010, just to really drive home the OSX compatability.

    perhaps it's a play on macOS X and winXP... both have X... so, Flash multi-platform X?

    bleh. it's a weirdo name, if you ask me. why not flash mofo sho' nuff X?

    and what about upgrades? NX, OX, PX?

    I am still a strong believer that it's Macromedia Xpanded. It fits totally their profile...
