I believe the was never the term “MacOSX”, it was either “MacOS”, or “Mac
OS X”, “OS X”, or “macOS”. And to be fair, the last change, renaming from
“OS X” to “macOS”, happened in 2016, so that was 5 years ago.

Keep using the term “Mac OS X” makes even less sense since the current
version number has been changed to 11 last year.
