Ubuntu 12.10 Codenames?

With the release of Ubuntu 12.04 due out next week, Mark Shuttleworth will soon be announcing the codename of the six-month successor to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which carries the codename of Precise Pangolin.

Following in past tradition for Ubuntu codenames, the Ubuntu 12.10 should be a codename that’s two words with each letter beginning with a Q for the 12.10 cycle. The first word is generally an adjective followed by the name of an animal. This name is decided internally by Canonical / Mark without a community voting process like what happens with Fedora.

The Ubuntu codenames tend to be much more formal than what’s now happened with Fedora codenames where the community process is effectively a loose cannon. Fedora 17 is codenamed the “Beefy Miracle” and it looks like Fedora 18 will also lead to an “interesting” codename like Spherical Cow, Ketchy Ketchup, Frankfurter, or Tandoori Chicken.

When meeting up with some Phoronix readers earlier this week in Boston over beers, an off-topic conversation began to be what would be the Ubuntu 12.10 codename if it were chosen by Fedora developers… While still complying with the traditional Ubuntu code-naming convention but involving what Fedora developers/users seem to like more than animals: food.

Here’s a list of some of the oddball Fedora-inspired potential codenames for Ubuntu 12.10, but don’t look for Mark to be picking any names off this list for the next Ubuntu Linux release.

– The Quirky Quesadilla
– The Quintessential Quiche
– The Questionable Queso
– The Quimsical Quaaludes
– The Quilled Quinoa
– The Quadrangular Quale
– The Qualified Quark
– The Quintessential Quiche
– The Quaint Quetsche
