    I wonder if it is going to change again like it did with 19.10, seems a bit early to announce the name, I did not see a link to the actual announcement by Canonical which is usually included in Articles on OMG.

    I've found nothing on Launchpad but a couple of vague references on IRC by those that would know and a comment by 'popey' on the OMG article suggest that Focal Fossa is what it will be.

    I did not read the comments previously but yes I see popey commented and I am sure he would not have done that if it is not a sure thing. Thanks for posting this, I checked my feeds and all and did not find an official announcement yet, but it is very early still.

    I would have said that a fossa was a ditch, but apparently it actually is an animal.

    Just goes to show — jump to conclusions and fall into a fossa ditch.

    when i see "fossa" it makes me think of "fossil". but it's a Cryptoprocta ferox.

    A fossa is considered a relative of the mongoose and found in areas around Madagascar. The size of a fossa is comparable to a small cougar, according to Wikipedia.

    I don't think I want to run into one on a dark night.

    Edit: All the more so, now that I've seen the picture.
