Ubuntu 9 Is Jaunty Jackalope, Coming Next April

timothy posted more than 5 years ago | from the good-eatin'-if-you-can-catch-'em dept.

Debian 318

mr_3ntropy writes "Ars is reporting Mark Shuttleworth announced today that Ubuntu 9.04 will be called Jaunty Jackalope, to be released next April. It will focus on improving boot times and the convergence of desktop and web. The 8.10 release, Intrepid Ibex, is coming next month with GNOME 2.24 and will include better support for subnotebooks."

...what the hell are they going to do after 26 releases?

As far as I know, there's only three animals that start with "aa", and no adjectives. Unless they're going to roll over to just "a" again, which would be lame (but more practical).

Why would rolling over to 'a' be lame? It would be like over a decade by the time they got there, so anyone getting confused would be running some *really* legacy stuff don't you think?

Re:What I want to know is (1)

3p1ph4ny (835701) | more than 5 years ago | (#24932101)

It was a joke. I assume they'd choose different animals and adjectives, so nobody would be confused.

...what the hell are they going to do after 26 releases?

I lay awake in bed at night wondering the same thing, cold sweat running down my face as I count down the seconds until the release of Ubuntu 17.10. Then I consider that the world is becoming increasingly unstable and fractured and I realise that there's a good chance the human race will destroy itself in a fiery hellstorm of nuclear war long before then. With this thought comes overwhelming relief and I cry myself to sleep with tears of joy that I will never have to face the terrible reality of knowing what comes after Zesty Zebra.

17 represents the year 2017. 2017-2004=13, because the original release was in 2004. 13x2=26, because releases are every 6 months, i.e. twice a year.

In Ubuntu, there are more than two releases per year.

Considering every release is either a .04 (April) or a .10 (October) release, how do you figure? Are you counting Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, etc?

BPPG (1181851) | more than 5 years ago | (#24932983)

He might be talking about the updated releases for the LTS versions. 8.04.1 is out now, for example. I'm not sure if the non-LTS versions also do this.

But really, referring to these as separate releases is kind of nit-picking.

Guessing the new name is fun... (3, Funny)

MindKata (957167) | more than 5 years ago | (#24931989)

Not sure about "Intrepid $animal". As for Jaunty Jackalope?, what a name ... I was hoping for a Jucy Jezabel. Oh well, at least they are going for Intrepid Ibex. My best guess was Incontinent Iguana. So what next?, Kinky Hangaroo and Lopsided Lobster?

Oh well, trying to guess the new name is making waiting for each update more fun. Maybe Microsoft should try using names. I guess they could try to be different and start with Zoosporangium Zebra and work backwards.

Microsoft always use names for their unfinished products. Which probably explains Vista (which was previously "Longhorn"). Ubuntu never actually uses the codenames for the final releases anyway..

Kjella (173770) | more than 5 years ago | (#24933033)

So what next?, Kinky Hangaroo and Lopsided Lobster?

With two exceptions (Dapper and Intrepid) they've gone for short, simple, fairly uncommon words ending in -y. They know that many people search for help on google using the keywords, as "ubuntu hardy" will return what you want while "ubuntu 8.04" will return lots of pages that happen to contain those numbers somewhere. For that reason "kinky" is entirely out of the question becaues of all the NSFW hits you'd get. So if you want an educated guess I'd go with "kozy" and "lofty" as the adjectives. The animals well that's just what they feel like...

Ugh.. you make me want to throw up. Anything different than Windows is good. Saying "Ubuntu 2008" is going to make it sound like a Windows clone, not to mention it just sounds lame.

Blimey85 (609949) | more than 5 years ago | (#24932545)

Right but when you go to the irc channel to ask for help, then you are going to get confused. I'm running Hardy and when I have a question I can tell people that's what I'm running, but I don't even know what the corresponding version number is, nor have I needed to know that. Also, when you are searching for answers, most if not all of the tutorials I have come across use the codename. They might also use the version number but I haven't noticed if that's the case or not.

Speed is important... (5, Interesting)

Blice (1208832) | more than 5 years ago | (#24932255)

I'm glad they're finally going to put some attention on boot time and speed. I'm a big fan of getting your boot times down, mine is 8 seconds (brag brag...).

But when I see Ubuntu and it boots slower than XP and... Well, feels slower than XP, I have to facepalm. Linux is supposed to be the faster one, it's supposed to be the one where you can say "Man, you use XP? It's so slow! Use Linux!", but with Ubuntu you can't really say that. Not that it's Ubuntu's fault, I put the blame on Gnome. The Gnome desktop is bulky and slow, your *panel* shouldn't be using CPU cycles constantly, or the amount of memory gnome-panel uses. There's alternatives for sure (And I'm not talking about KDE, it's almost as bad.), but you have to piece it together yourself because it isn't a single DE. I.E, Openbox WM, pypanel or bmpanel or lxpanel or lbpanel or one of those (I prefer pypanel and bmpanel), pcmanfm filenavigator (Can also set icons on the desktop and manage wallpapers), and on and on. There's tons of lightweight programs out there with the same abilities, just not packaged neatly together. But people are trying! Just have a look at crunchbang linux [crunchbang.org] and DEs like lxde [lxde.org] . Using this stuff, you can get that old 550mhz thinkpad you have in your closet up and running again, webbrowsing and e-mailing at lightning speeds. THIS, to me, is what Linux should represent. Not the slow bulky thing you have to buy a new computer for!

But about the other things with the new Ubuntu release, polishlinux has a great review of what Ubuntu alpha looks like right now, and what we can expect from it here [polishlinux.org] .

Looks like nautilus is finally getting tabs, although the lighter pcmanfm has had tabs for awhile. I'm really excited about is improvements with the network manager and with xorg... Two places that really need improvement. Seems like wireless support improves with each release, and I hope it continues on that awesome path. And it seems that the kernel 2.6.27 will be out in time for this release! It's already on rc5, and most kernels don't go past rc10 before release (And they're releasing an rc once a week, or about once a week).

It's all very exciting, but again the one thing I hope for more than anything else is speed and bloat! Keep Linux the OS that you say "You don't even have to get a new computer for it. It's fast, unlike Vista/XP/OSX/Everythingever", please please please

Re:Speed is important... (1)

nawcom (941663) | more than 5 years ago | (#24932351)

What runs on X11 really shouldn't be a component of Linux by itself, since X11 runs on many OSs. though I do agree with you in saying that the fault goes to GNOME developers, I must say that it was Ubuntu who decided to design the distribution around it. I can't tell you how many times people insist I'm using Linux since they see I'm running Xfce, yet they look at me strange when i run uname and show that I'm running it off of FreeBSD. Oh well. When it comes to Linux, I'm the Slackware type, so I come from a different perspective on what to expect. Hopefully the next Ubuntu release will be better.

I'd rather have a linux version that is more user friendly for installing apps, instead of having to google instructions each time I want to install stuff that isn't in synaptic.

I mean cmon, do I really have to open the terminal and type 4-5 command lines each time plus my root pw?

Installing stuff should be as easy as click, are you sure? yes/no.

For Debian/Ubuntu based distros, if you can't find something in Synaptic you can search for a .deb of the program you're looking for. Think of it as a .msi for Windows, you double click it and it has a button to install. Very easy.

I suggest searching for the program you can't find here [getdeb.net]

Mod parent up. I was getting annoyed that no-one seemed to care about anything except what they named the release! I was starting to think I was on a PHB forum!

Now that will be AWESOME, even though a yiffy yak sounds like a very scary thing.

A new version of this crap OS comes out and the fosstards are lulling about the name. Exactly 1 thread on speed ("Speed is important").

One more time before I split: Desktop Linux isn't free, it's worthless.

Bye dickheads, bye /. Wank away.
