    Default Thank God, Fedora 14 Is Not Fytnargin

    Phoronix: Thank God, Fedora 14 Is Not Fytnargin

    Following a period of Fedora contributors proposing codenames for the release of Red Hat's next community operating system, Fedora 14, voting commenced. Fortunately, the name that's been decided upon is not Fytnargin...

    Hi,

    Fedora uses a community oriented process for suggesting and electing codenames and anyone can participate in it. God does not come into the picture :-)

    Yeah, after all, Red Hat is big into cloud computing.

    I doubt that. He's supposed to be omnipotent and as such would probably install his own custom linux distro by uncompressing tarballs and compiling everything manually.

    Funny, I always expected God to be intelligent.

    Why is Laughlin better than Fytnargin? Neither one makes sense to me.

    The release naming is actually a GAME.

    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/Names
    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_s..._for_Fedora_13

    F11: Leonidas
    F12: Constantine
    F13: Goddard
    Laughlin: is-a PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS (like goddard)
    Fytnargin: is-a MOUNTAIN (like goddard)
