    I like the codename. It's easy to remember and pronounce by everyone in the world.

        The whole point of a Finnish company using Finnish words for their own products is to, if you cant understand it, look it up. And maybe, just maybe, you might learn about a culture other than your own.

        It makes people sit up and take notice, and maybe have a little fun trying to pronounce it.

        And its a programmes version name, not a shelf product.

          It's a marketing fail. IKEA uses nordic names for their products but they are the only one that covers their market at their scale, so they can afford of having highly-alien names that most people outside the few in nordic countries can't use or remember and is also too lazy to look up.

          I really hope that, as you said, they keep this as engineering/beta name but will use a more mass-market-friendly name.

            Do you really believe that anyone with a Sailfish-running device would give a sh*t about a nick name?

              The mass-market for these products doesn't even exist. And anyway, it's just a nick name, releases have a pretty standard looking version number as well.
