The next release of Ubuntu will be called Raring Ringtail.
What should they call the following release?

I vote for Sensuous Silvia

Keep in mind ... adjective followed by the name of an actual creature or living being!

For instance:

Surreptitious Spider = 13.10

... to give a bad example.

Raring Ringtail might give you all a clue ...

PS: I have moved this to the Community Cafe as it's not a game. This is serious! lol ;)

Your wife is a genius.

I'd say Sour Soda, would be cool.

Well, I tried, and I was able to log in, but there's no "Edit" option on my wiki page.

Probably just as well, I was going to nominate "Soaring Sericipterus".
