Okay so ubuntu's names are alphabetical after dapper. What will happen after whatever "Z" will be?

Well, if we follow the ascii table we should get:
"["

Ubuntu's naming scheme reminds me of 'Letter People Land' from when I was a preschooler in the early eighties.

Like with hurricanes though, I would think the series would restart at "A" -perhaps with a new scheme, like spices or colors. That'd tax their imaginations a bit.

By then we'll probably have a whole new naming scheme.:popcorn:

They have eight years to figure it out:

9.04 J
9.10 K
10.04 L
10.10 M
11.04 N
11.10 O
12.04 P
12.10 Q
13.04 R
13.10 S
14.04 T
14.10 U
15.04 V
15.10 W
16.04 X
16.10 Y
17.04 Z

I personally can't wait for Xenophobic Xerus :)

You forget, they already used 'W'. Not as much time as you thought.

Greek fonts? hard to make two words that make sense out of that, though. hmm

Hurricanes don't start over to A until the next season, if they run out of letters during a season they go to greek alphabet for example what happened in 2005 (That was a fun year :rolleyes:)

I loved that year! It was so cool to see Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and Zeta.

i heard that too. the 'z' release will be the last one, and the code will be given to the debian devs. it's a great idea :) the debian code goes full circle.

We could go for the Norwegian alphabet:
a
b
c
d
e
f
g
h
i
j
k
l
m
n
o
p
q
r
s
t
u
v
w
x
y
z




Then start at A again!

Here's a picture of Mark Shuttleworth's house after he runs out of alphabet for Ubuntu releases:

"A".. because by that time people will forget that it started with "B" (Breezy Badger) anyway.
