    According to Launchpad, it looks like we finally have the codename for the successor to the Zesty Zapus...

    Can't wait for the funny ones to start calling it Awful Aardvark.

    Pretty cool name, tbh.

        Wifi configuration via Stick&Surf would be cool and i also would like to see a dnssec by default resolver config that plays nice with captive portals.
        Fedora wanted to do this last year.

          Joking aside, archeopteryx wouldn't qualify, even if it wasn't extinct or a mouthful of a name. I'm not 100% sure, but I think Ubuntu is only named after African animals; archeopteryx was discovered in Germany.

            Can we call him Arty for short? Arty Aardvark!

              So then my old standby "Itchy Inchworm" still has a chance if I'm remembering my species distributions correction.

                    I find "artful" rather silly as a name, with so many better Absurd Alliterations Available.
