I keep seeing people referring to Ubuntu versions by nicknames rather than their version number. Is there a matrix that shows who's who? I can't find anything on the Ubuntu website.

I don't who's hardy, sleepy, bashful, moe, larry or curly. Who's who? Where's the Ubuntu telephone directory?

These are cute animal names with a rhyming word with them.. like Intrepid Ibex would be the next release...
The version indicated the month and year of release. Read here:

Well, they go in alphabetical order. People usually just keep track of the latest release, regular or LTS. Right now it's easy because they're the same :) (8.04 aka Hardy is an LTS)

I knew it had to be readily available somewhere, but I couldn't find it on the web site.

Ubuntu itself is an African word. The startup sound is like a jungle jingle!!
"Linux for Human beings"

PS: I love Orange + African + Coffee!!!

Well, it should read as "GNU/Linux for Human beings". That's why RMS dislikes most of the current distros, incl, Ubuntu. They never acknowledge GNU!!!!

To be a stickler, that's not rhyming. They just start with the same letter. :)

You will also note that releases are generally referred to by their adjective ("I just installed Gusty" or "Never had a problem with Hardy").

I'm personally looking forward to Monolithic Meerkat. :)
