    Phoronix: Fedora 17 Could Be Called Hugo Or Shakespeare

    It's time for Fedora contributors to go crazy again... a.k.a. Red Hat is looking for codename proposals for Fedora 17, which will be their first community Linux release in 2012 to succeed the soon-to-be-released Fedora 16. Here's some of the names that have been proposed thus far...

    How disappointing! Without mustard there can be no progress, and how can we hope for progress without a Beefy Miracle?

      There are two problems with mustard:
      1. Nobody wants to work on the next big thing if that's called mustard "Mustard is going to change computing for good!"... errrrr...;
      2. Google it and see if you can find useful information about an upcomming Fedora release.

        The codename was Beefy Miracle not mustard

        Google "Beefy Miracle" and see what you get.

        Anyway, who doesn't like mustard? Without mustard how can one know where one is? The mustard represents, as it were, a sublimation of the divine absolute onto the mortal world. It reminds us of our place, and of the Miracle to come

              That would probably be more appropriate for Gnome3 releases.

                Jules Verne wrote a book, "2.000 Leagues Under the Sea", about Atlantis, among other things. So did Francis Bacon, who wrote "The New Atlantis", an utopian novel about Atlantis.

                Voilà.
