Apple Computer uses in-house code names for various upcoming versions of their OS X operating system, a practice used by many companies. In the past, Apple has used names like Galileo, Newton and others as a way of honouring great scientific minds. One project, some years ago, was called "Sagan" after noted astronomer Carl Sagan. However, the eminent stargazer learned of the unlicensed use of his name and threatened a lawsuit. So, according to the article I read, in response Apple changed the code name to "Butthead Astronomer."
