Since early December the Fedora community has been generating possible codenames
for Fedora 11
. Earlier this week the final voting took place
where the active Fedora contributors had to ultimately decide on the codename to use for this next Linux release.
The final choices were Blarney, Brasilia, Claypool, Duchess, Euryalus, Indomitable, Leonidas, and Zampone. With just over 1,000 votes, Leonidas is the winner and the name for Fedora 11. In second place was Claypool.
Who or what is a Leonidas? Well, Leonidas was a king of Sparta
and it means "Lion's son" or "Lion-like" in Greek.
The Fedora 11 naming announcement was made on the Fedora mailing list
