    Phoronix: Debian 9.0 Reportedly Codenamed Zurg

    The next Debian release, 8.0, is codenamed Jessie, but succeeding that will be Debian 9.0 "Zurg" in a few years time...

    It was just a joke!

    Gosh, it was a joke inside default init debate (reference here or here).

      So, will Zurg be used when they officially switch to systemd? I think it'd be somewhat inappropriate to transition Jessie to systemd. I feel the debian release cycles have been somewhat arbitrary.

        • there will be no Debian Zurg (at least it was not decided, just blogged as a joke)
        • The tech-ctte decision was to switch to systemd for Linux ports in jessie

          In other news, Apple is exploring a patent lawsuit against the Debian community for infringement of their patent on "dominating and enslaving the human race" through use of the name Zorg.

              Meaning what? Because they're not time based releases? Debian releases when its ready and the developers feel it meets their level of QA

                All hail debian zurg! Over-lord of all the other linux distrobutions!..
