    Phoronix: Ubuntu 11.10 Is Called The "Oneiric Ocelot"

    While Fedora 16 might be codenamed Bacon, Mark Shuttleworth has announced the codename for Ubuntu 11.10 and it's to be called the "Oneiric Ocelot" release...

      Cool small cat thing

      However we missed another great chance. They could have easily called it Onanistic Orangutan. It would fit well with the stupidity and the apeing in the design/UI department.

        I nearly crapped myself laughing about the apeing around with the UI... XD I totally agree though though. I don't think Canonical and the Ubuntu devs get the idea of don't fix something that isn't broken. Hell, the Gnome devs don't get the idea either.

          Just wait for 12.04...

          ... Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Quizzical Quagga"
          Some more adj. just for kicks: Quaint - Queasy - Quirky - Queroluos - Quashed - Quivering - Quixotic

            More like => Keep playing with it until lots of people complain. Then stop.

              hmm, the convention of just using the adjective (the first word in the name) as eg. the apt release name will be difficult for this one - sounds like "anaemic"

                Oops... Oh-shit!

                  Seriously, I think Canonical SHOULD BUY QT FROM Nokia, period.

                    I wonder whether they've deliberately chosen an unusual word to make the release name easier to include/exclude in searches (if you can spell it right) without hitting normal uses of the word.
