Code name for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Every Ubuntu release gets an alliterative code name from Mark Shuttleworth. It is a composition of an adjective and an animal. The upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 has the code name “Raring Ringtail”. Since nearly the beginning, the code names follow the alphabetical order. We will reach the letter Z with Ubuntu 17.04 if no letters are skipped. Will we wrap then and begin with A again?

At UDS-R in Copenhagen, Mark Shuttleworth jokingly said between Jono Bacon’s introduction and Mark’s keynote speech, that vegetables will be used once we run out of letters. He proposed the code name for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS: Brilliant Broccoli!

  1. Heh. Maybe they should use different things. I particularily like 12.04 “prolonged pain” (Long Term Suffering).

    Funnily enough, I’m not really fond of broccoli either.
