They lost the opportunity to name an Ubuntu release as something like "Powerful Penguin".
I think that Ubuntu sometimes forgets that they are Linux.
like it or not Linux has been enstablished as the name and if someone was pedantic it should have been named Ubuntu GNU/Linux/Xorg/Unity/with Gnome apps/etc/etc
its plain down stupid, pointless and matters only to people with RMS mentality
And remember, it's not the animal part it is used. It is the strange prefixes...
I at least find version numbers very easy to remember because they are dates, and always 6 months apart for the last years.
So if I saw "this package is for 11.04" I would know that it works on my laptop, and if I saw "this package is for 10.04 LTS" I would know it works on my server.
Well, I feel awesome. I first suggested the pangolin about...a year and a half ago? First time it was mentioned. Looking at the naming wiki, someone didn't like my adjective (even if "precarious" is more descriptive of Ubuntu's X.04 releases), but oh well.
I'm going to just go ahead and claim this as a victory in the name of Gentoo.
It's a shame that Porky Pig is probably a trademark. Nobody would have forgotten that one.
