    Phoronix: Ubuntu 10.10 Is The Maverick Meerkat

    We already know the Ubuntu 10.10 release schedule (with the official release coming on the 28th of October), but now we know the codename for this Ubuntu 10.04 LTS successor. Ubuntu 10.10 is being named the "Maverick Meerkat", according to a blog post this morning by Mark Shuttleworth...

    Mad Monkey would have been a better suited codename

            One rarely sees "free" and "licensed from Disney" in the same sentence

                  Who's in charge of choosing the names? They should be shot, imho.

                  Seems like they're getting worse.

                  I would have called it 'Mighty Mamba' or something like that. The 'official one' if that is what it will be, is too long and not smooth sounding. It sucks.

                    Nobody really uses the full name. Karmic, Lucid, Maverick. You can give a suggestion for the next codename here:
