    Post Code names and other coelacanths

    I'm probably going to be answered as though I were a hybrid of Ebenezer Scrooge and Darth Vader, but can we quit with the code names for Linux distributions, already? People are taking them way too seriously.

    As a coelacanth I object to being spoken of as long pass my heyday. I will still be swimming around long after humans have eaten all the cod.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Since when are Ubuntu's release names "code names"? I didn't realize there was any connection between the two ideas. They're just names that sound snappier than numbers for the press releases.
