LXer: Canonical Turns Up the Heat in Ubuntu Offensive

Published at LXer:

Faithful readers of this column may remember news we reported back in early April that the next Ubuntu release had been cunningly named"Jabbering Jackass." The news came from a memo that got leaked to the Linux Loop, the story went, and it was, of course, an April Fools' Day joke -- which we knew all along.

The release names are the best bit of marketing in the universe. Other distros release point updates and get a bit of a mention. Ubuntu uses the wacky naming convention and everyone goes wild over it.

I don't care what the distro names are as long as they work. *goes back to Debian Sid*
