Okay, I'm sitting here trying to reinstall Windows (being forced to since my family hasn't taken on to Ubuntu yet and its already a painful experience) and I'm thinking about what the next Ubuntu name might be and I noticed a pattern. No, not the first letter pattern but the fact that the names are in ABC order, like Hardy Heron, then Intrepid Ibex, then Jaunty Jackelope and finally Karmic Koala. Is this intentional or coincidental?

It makes a good game betting on the next unannounced name like:

Marvelous Marmoset

-or-

Morose Mongoose

Naaah, it can't be intentional. That's why Warty Warthog and Hoary Hedgehog exist. The letter C wasn't used either.

They started the ABC at Dapper Drake 6.06 if I recall correctly. It always made more sense to follow the order.

The numbers make more sense, the daft animal names names are really annoying and the sooner they're dropped the better.

No way! Viva la crazy animal names! :)

They're harmless fun, and give the release a bit of character.

Six months before Nocturnal Nightcrawler will come Masturbating Monkey.
