        I most associate squirrels with running out in the road and not being able to make up their mind if they want to cross when a car is oncoming.

          Then running right in front of your right or left tire at the exact right time such that you only run over their head. :/

                Youthful Yeti? (They used a unicorn for U, so why not a yeti for Y?)

                  Hopefully we don't get our nuts cracked.

                    I was sort of wondering if this code name would be "Xless (anything)" though I suppose their MIR display server isn't ready for that and only the GNOME spin would have a chance at wayland being usable by default. The other day I fired up Weston and tried to get a mate-panel running on it, no luck. Could get caja and pluma working but that was about it. Also "Xless" rhymes with "Sexless" so I guess that would never do no matter how the display server situation went.
