AMD have been naming their CPUs since 90 nm generations under the K8 micro-architecture after the name of cities around the world. For the CPUs under the Phenom brand, the names of stars were used as code names. For Opteron server CPUs and platforms, cities related to the Ferrari Formula One team were used. Mobile platforms are named after birds (except for Puma).
Apple has named the various major releases of Mac OS X after big cats, such as Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and the most recent Mountain Lion.
Intel often names CPU projects after rivers in the American West, particularly in the state of Oregon (where most of Intel's CPU projects are designed). Examples include Willamette, Deschutes, Yamhill, Tualatin, and Clackamas.
Microsoft often names projects (in particular, versions of the Microsoft Windows operating systems) after place names. Examples include Chicago (Windows 95), Daytona (Windows NT 3.5), Memphis (Windows 98), Whistler (Windows XP), Longhorn (Windows Vista), Blackcomb/Vienna (Windows 7) and Cairo (originally thought to be Windows NT 4.0, though many observers now believe that Cairo never turned into a project).
Mozilla uses code names which are mostly named after national parks to reference different versions of the Mozilla Firefox browser:
Firefox 2.0: Bon Echo
Firefox 3.0: Gran Paradiso
Firefox 3.5: Shiretoko
Firefox 3.6: Namoroka
Firefox 4.0: Tumucumaque
Since April 2009, each Android version has been developed under a codename based on a dessert or sweet treat. These versions have been released in alphabetical order: Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean.
