    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 :-)

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

    The names are suggested by anyone interested at

    You can find explanation of the names as well as the corelation to the previous name in that page.

    The release naming is actually a GAME.

    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)

    I don't think either of those meet Fedora's FOSS licence requirements, so don't bother.
