Ubuntu 11.10 Is Named The “Oneiric Ocelot”
You probably have heard about it but the name for Ubuntu 11.10 will be the Oneiric Ocelot…
What we want is something imaginative, something dreamy. Something sleek and neat, too. Something that has all the precision of T S Eliot’s poetry, matched with the “effable ineffability” of our shared values, friendship and expertise. Something that captures both the competence of ubuntu-devel with the imagination of ayatana.
Which leads us neatly to the Oneiric Ocelot.
Oneiric means “dreamy”, and the combination with Ocelot reminds me of the way innovation happens: part daydream, part discipline.
