    Ubuntu X.(04|10) LTS "Adjective Animal"

    where Animal and Adjective are usually not heard of/seldom-used

      This is a pity. Trying to guess the next adjective animal (and making up the most ridiculous ideas) has been part of the Ubuntu lore for years and announcing it so early has killed the ritual this time. Mark should have waited at least a week or two.

        U think they’ll have wayland as default on the next LTS after that?

          I wonder why can't it be called... 20.04. It carries so much more information. In conversation I always refer to Ubuntu releases by their YY.MM moniker. I usually don't even remember the stupid animal names and I often have trouble finding the right release directory at the server.

            kobblestown The final product is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Animal names is only during development. But the animal names are cool and tend to stick.

              It is called 20.04. Focal Fossa is the internal development name. In the releases directory they are all numbered according to yy.mm.

                No. Packages' urls won't have any indication on YY.MM they will contain "focal".
                See https://packages.ubuntu.com/eoan/devel/apt-build for example

                  How do I find 14.04?

                  BTW, the animal names are childish, not cool.
