    Here is a bobtail squid



    It is a deep sea species so he probably didn't see it live. Yet, hard to find a cuter inspiration for a release name.

      Apparently that's the best fun you can have as a kernel dev.

        Will upgrade to it once kernel 5.2.5 is released. I'm fed up with regressions which have led to data loss. There've been too many of them recently.

          no data loss here on Tumbleweed. Also no Samsung SSDs.

            It's Torvalds who's quite a passionate scuba diver.

                I was always a bit confused by this issue. My main drive is a 512GB Evo 850 and I didn't hear about the data corruption issue until after I'd been running 5.1 for awhile. However then I read it only manifested with specific LVM encryption setups, but then later read elsewhere it affected other system configurations as well. But I never had any problems.

                In any case, I'm going to compile and test it now. I'm always frightened when I use the first release of any software, but can't help myself when it comes to kernels Of course I keep everything backed up all the time though.

                  Frak these stupid nicknames (for Kernel revisions..!). Useless garbage invented by a-holes.

                    It was a mistake to upgrade to 5.2 from 5.1 - I am experiencing system hangs.
