Now it is neither! As of June 13, 2016, the name has been changed to macOS https://www.apple.com/macos/sierra/ During the keynote at WWDC on June 13, 2016, Apple announced that OS X would be renamed macOS to stylistically match Apple's other operating systems, such as iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Ask Different is a play on the Think Different ad campaign that Apple ran in the '90s. The Ask part just represents one of the site's core functions, asking. The goal is in no way to label Apple users as somehow different; it's just a bit of nostalgia.

We DO! (We being the employees of Stack Exchange) After this question was asked, we were able to find and acquire the twitter handle @askdifferent! From now on, we will be using @askdifferent instead of @stackapple, so remember that if you want to @ reply or mention us. Psst - if you don't follow @askdifferent already, feel free to do so :-)

Proposal 2 -- Q&A for users of Apple hardware and software Edit the description on the list of sites so that the word 'power' is removed and it now reads Q&A for users of Apple hardware and software.

I favor to exclude CW posts from the mountainlionchallengeTM as it distorts the results. On Ask Different posts are made community wikis mostly because: multiple people worked on an answer but only one get's the votes collect gems which Apple hides in their software Excluding CW posts will encourage communal editing to provide the best answers and hints ...

Thank you for making this entirely raffle-based. That, combined with the higher (10-score) bar for quality should produce better results than the last contest.

I've submitted a pull request to the GitHub repo. This pull request deals with resizing the ad to the necessary size and adding a border (required by guidelines). https://github.com/51cards/Stack-Exchange-Bounty-Ad/pull/7

I'm writing a Blog Post (one that I always intended to write), and it's going to be more than 750 Characters - is this OK? It's not massively over, it will be approaching a thousand words.

The hall is the main landing page as far as I can tell. http://www.thenewipadishere.com/ Stack Exchange bought that domain and it's still up, so Q.E.D. or perhaps QEF?

Proposal 0 — It remains as it is. Proposal 1 isn't suitable: the list of site descriptions are always of the form ‘Q&A for [scope]’. Proposal 2 might be ok, but I don't think it's necessary. Many site descriptions use ‘power’ for the reasons discussed in: Why “Pro” in “Pro Webmasters”. As for me, (the newly added) proposal 3 sounds good.
