RE: Code names?

Ubuntu has always had these crazy code names for their releases, such as Warty Warthog, Breezy Badger, Dapper Drake. It is just a fun thing I guess.

Since Fawns are found in groups called Herds, the ubuntu folks have named their Feisty Fawn test releases Herd 1, Herd 2, etc.

They will probably have an RC1 (maybe an RC 2) before the final release which will officially be called Ubuntu 7.04 if it goes out on schedule.

We all probably need to focus less on the code names, and more on the quality OS that will be out soon!

Hope this clears it up a little bit.
