      "Superficial Sparrow" or so would have been more fitting. Also, oh man, marketing speak.

          So many possible animals that have a name starting with an 'S', and the best they could come up with was one associated with a lizard?

          'Splendid Swan' would have been so much better.

              If canonical has a sense of humor they will come up with something with tits (birds) for the next release.

                  Solid Snake

                  We all hoped for the codename to be Solid Snake.

                      Canonical is a business.
                      I am sure the last thing they want it is to be associated with sexism.

                            That hexcode is really old, and something from back in the days when computing was even more male dominated, and more nerdy and geeky with less everyday people using computers.

                            Also, was probably done in silence by geeks and upper management probably had no clue.

                            I don't get offended by anything.
                            It's just that companies really have to guard their image and their public relations, because else some assholes blow shit out of proportion and go bananas over some minor stuff like that.
