Since 10.12 (Sierra, released in 2016), macOS is no longer called OS X. References to macOS in the documentation should be updated to reflect this. This is now especially important because macOS 11 (Big Sur) is now in preview, and the X meaning 10 in roman numerals is now completely incorrect (not just the wrong name).

While I'm at it, should I change "Macintosh" to "Mac"?

As I mentioned in my review on the PR I'd prefer to keep using Macintosh where it is used to denote to MacOS 9 and earlier. Both out of nostalgia and because that older OS was substantially different from the current OS.
