          It's a joke, pointing out that the name "Cosmic Cuttlefish" sounds like it could have been intended as a reference to the Reapers in the Mass Effect games.

            There are 2 applications on Linux one is Cuttlefish a Kde application "Cuttlefish attempts to render the icons exactly as they would look drawn in the application" -Ubuntu store.
            Ubuntu switching to kde confirmed.
            or
            "Cuttlefish allows you to create events that only happen under certain circumstances". This project appears dead from 2012 sounds like a good fit for Canonical

              Hm, I'll allow that.

              I always thought they were more insect-like things due to their legs and body shape and armor plates. For example they do have a striking resemblance for a diving beetle larvae.

                    On Windows 10 you have UWP apps which run sandboxes and isolated.
                    On Linux, any application can access anything and do anything.
                    Example, a calculator can access your files, a text editor can access your webcam, etc.
