    Alliteration

    I notice the catchy names "Edgy Eft" and "Dapper Drake"

    they both have the same letter in each word, is this intentional? Do all Ubuntu versions do this? [I only know of these two..]

    I love the Alliteration....

    hmmm, yep, looks like all of em. think it makes it easier to remember what version you have then 5.10, 6.06, 6.1, 7.04
    Debian Testing(64bit) + XFCE4 AM2 5200+ ATI Radeon HD4350, 4gig RAM,320Gig and 750gig HDs

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear

    Re: Alliteration

    They are also going to be alphabetical for the most part. Since 6.10 was Edgy Eft and 7.04 will be Feisty Fawn. G... G... is already taken up by Grumpy Groundhog, and H... H... is Hoary Hedgehog, so the next release will be codenamed I... I.... .

    Also, in case you didn't know, the numbering scheme has reason to it as well. It's numbered like this:
    Year.Month. So, 6.10 came out in October of 2006 (10/2006) and 7.04 is coming out in April 2007 (04/2007)

    If I were a groundhog, I would be grumpy too. Stupid people pulling you out of your nice warm den ever Feb 2....

    How about "Insane Ibis"?

    Probably has something to do with a version of Debian. A Debian version has a similar name.

    PS: Alliteration is appreciated by a Real G 187 (Homicide)? I found that somewhat funny.

    Nah, the format for the codenames is a certain way. The first word is a personality trait or characteristic. The second word is an animal.

    So "Edgy" means new technologies, testing the waters, on the edge. "Eft" is a lizard, like a newt.

    That can be applied to any of the release codenames. It doesn't have anything to do with Debian Etch.

    For those of you wondering an eft is actually an animal. It's some sort of salamander. I was curious about why this seemed to be the only one without an animal name so I looked it up. They are weird pudgy little red lizards.
