    Re: The next LTS version has a name.

    Pangolin fine, but Precise? Most of us use the adjective, not the noun, as shorthand - "I'm running Lucid." "Upgrading to Maverick." "Natty is the best release yet." "Oneiric is even better."

    But "Precise" will sound weird (imho):

    "The first LTS to be built on gnome 3 will be Precise."

    "Precisely when will the Precise alpha be released?"

    I would have went with Patient Panther.

    The idea being that ubuntu is patiently stalking Windows to overtake its majority marketshare. Along the same lines, Mark said he expects 200 million ubuntu uses within the next few years.

    An anteater? Makes it sound like Ubuntu is picking up the crumbs (users) that Windows leaves behind.

    Not bad... not bad at all. I like the idea of a scaly anteater being the mascot. Mark sure likes his odd animals. But Precise? Somehow, that doesn't quite work. Perky or Plucky would've been better... but eh.

    Precise Pangolin, I like

    I do wonder, though, what will happen when Ubuntu reaches Z? Will he start over again with A? (I'm sure Ubuntu will be around for a good long while)

    Possibly, even though Ubuntu did start on W first:
