    Default Fedora 19 Might Be A Prime Rib Or Crop Circle

    Phoronix: Fedora 19 Might Be A Prime Rib Or Crop Circle

    It's time to begin proposing codenames for Red Hat's Fedora 19 release. While the codename proposal process just began this morning, as usual, there's already a variety of funky codenames being shared...

    Even if fedora was called blooming flowers, normal people would run away from it because you have to add a third party repo for every stupid app like chromium or vlc. Combined with the alpha quality regression testing, only power users will care to use it.

    I have rarely if ever encountered a Fedora user who has referred to a version based on it's codename. So the Microsoft comparison actually is apposite.

    It annoys me when Ubuntu users identify it by it's codename, but in the end I doubt that this is the primary reason why Linux has not had massive widespread adoption.

    I mean, they said the same thing about Tux back in the day. I think people just need to chill out over this one...

    Default Fedora Advantage was my suggestion

    Fedora Advantage is a nice name, I thought as well to use Fedora Avantguard but choosing this latter adjective leaves out the rock solid great products that appear first in Fedora, before elsewhere. Since Fedora 6 to 17. Fedora has been (for me), crash proof.

    Default Names after Fedora 19

    I thought that significant scientists should have distributions named after them

    Jonas (Salk Vaccine)
    Thomas Edison (bringing the lightbulb to production)
    James Maxwell (Maxwells equations for Electricity and more)
    Albert Einstein (E=mc^2)
    and of course
    another 500 scientists who deserve merit-us mention and a distribution named after them.

    and me.

    Leslie Satenstein (for suggesting a naming pattern)
