Nameless Fedora 21 Linux Is an Opportunity for Growth


Quote:
The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Linux community recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, capping off a decade of releases and evolution. In 2014, Fedora could be in store for its biggest evolution since the project's creation, with fewer releases and even a new naming strategy.
Typically, the Fedora project has had two releases in any given year: one in the early spring, the other early winter. For 2014, that likely won't be the case.

Fedora 20 was released on Dec. 17, 2013, and its successor won't debut until August 2014.

Another key change in the Fedora Linux world is the naming strategy for new releases. The Fedora project has chosen some interesting names for its Linux distribution releases in recent years. The Fedora 20 release was named Heisenbug, Fedora 19 was called Schrodinger's Cat, Fedora 18 was the Spherical Cow, and Fedora 17 was the Beefy Miracle.

In the past, Fedora community members nominated and then voted on the name for each new release. The basic idea was that the new name somehow had a connection with the prior release's name, though that connection was sometimes somewhat tenuous.

That naming process was not one that everyone was comfortable with. In April 2012, the Fedora community began to publicly debate the merits of their naming approach, and in October 2013, the Fedora Board decided to end the existing naming process following the Fedora 20 release.

"What will be the code name for Fedora 21?" Red Hat's Jaroslav Reznik wrote in a blog post. "Short answer: null. Not null as null string, but null."
