    14.10 utopic unicorn

    So what do you think of the code name for 14.10 personally I liked Unreal Unicorn which another forum member suggested. But what do you guy's think ?

    "Utopic" is pretty clunky and arcane. The preferred adjectival form is "utopian." Something like "Unstoppable" or "Unrelenting" or, as you suggest, "Unreal" all seem preferable to me.

    I couldn't care less, really. But for the sake of boredom, for once I'll care and say that Utopic Unicorn sounds... weird. At that point I'd just refer to it as "14.10". I'm not even entirely sure why there are codenames in the first place for Ubuntu releases. It's not like any of the releases were a secret.

    From the Oxford English Dictionary the definition of Utopic is "That embodies or proposes Utopian ideals".
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    Yes, I know it appears there, but a little research suggested that it is not the preferred adjectival form. And it doesn't roll off the tongue either.

    Sadly this release I didn't get to learn about an animal I had never heard of before.

    Well, this time it's a mythical animal, too.

    I thought the jackalope was mythical, too.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.
