So why isn't this "preview release" named (K)Ubuntu 5.11? It isn't yet April 2006. Check calendar.

Because the final release version will come out in April 2006.

"So why isn't this "preview release" named (K)Ubuntu 5.11? It isn't yet April 2006. Check calendar."

Because of the month/year naming system Ubuntu employs. The release version is 5 (as in 2005) and 11 (corresponding to the 11th month, November)
