    I'll give them a break this time. There aren't a huge number of animals starting with 'Q' that have simple names. I think I'll remember Quantal better than Oneiric anyway (though no as well as Precise obviously). It's easier to spell and easier to pronounce (which makes it easier to remember the spelling too), so it will help me avoid...

    Oneiric Ocelot is a tongue twister by comparison.

      All you need to know is the first part anyway as thats the name of the repository. When i first googled quetzal my impression was that U has got a bird now, well in german language it sounds even more funny

        Maybe that is the reason for the dominance of numbers in versions - they are so international...
        Nope, I'm Lithuanian, English is my second language. Although I usually do make a habit of finding out what the names mean if I don't know them. Oh, and I hate everything about maths, so that could be somewhat related

I also remember Edgy, though not what the animal was about right now... And all of those associate with the specific circumstances of their release. The numbers say nothing to me, especially since it's quite similar to other distributions, like Mandriva and openSUSE... And I never even used Ubuntu as my primary distribution.
