Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

Fedora should just name future releases "Windows" and forget about silly trademark laws. We'll watch people screaming and the world burning as it comes to an end, with popcorn and cold beer in our hands.

Maybe Windows 7 was an attempt to make users forget the Vista snafu?

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

Without a codename it becomes so sterile, cold and it is kind of boring to just have version as a name.
Even though the names don't really reflect the nature of the releases, it does make them a bit more personal.
If the current way of determing a name is too.much of a hassle, the proccess should rather be simplified than eliminated altogether.

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

"We believe that we know something about the things themselves when we speak of trees, colors, snow, and flowers; and yet we possess nothing but metaphors for things — metaphors which correspond in no way to the original entities.

In the same way that the sound appears as a sand figure, so the mysterious X of the thing in itself first appears as a nerve stimulus, then as an image, and finally as a sound. Thus the genesis of language does not proceed logically in any case, and all the material within and with which the man of truth, the scientist, and the philosopher later work and build, if not derived from never-never land, is a least not derived from the essence of things."

On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense (1873)

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

I like the name "Fedora". It's cool and better than calling it "Blue Hat" or something.

Ok, fine. If you all want to be that way about it, I'll just code-name them myself.

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

Thanks Dan. I needed a laugh this morning. I'd like to see the splash screens and themes that accompany your new names.

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?
"beefy miracle" has a connotation, and even an implication or harm to animals, and so to in deference to the vegetarians and especially the Jains who strive to never harm even an insect I propose that all future Fedora projects be code-named "BugHaven" to connote an environment where even bugs are safe to thrive and multiply

More sincerely -
The Fedora code names are dumb dumb dumb - good riddance.
I hope any Jainas here will accept my pun as a humorous intent - no offense meant.
A true Jain cannot take offence, so don't worry.

Morning Dan ( or whatever time it is in Texas! ). In accordance with Mr Murphy's law, because we're supposed to be facing a drought situation my corner of the UK is getting frequent downpours Other than that no more than the usual quota of human stupidity. I for one am hoping that the media will be providing a sport-free safe haven for those of us who couldn't care who gets a gold for the Windows XP reinstall - sorry, getting confused with glennzo's thread . Looking forward to F17 coming out, I might try cinnamon if I have any problems with pre-upgrade, if F17 is as stable as F16 has been for me I'll be one happy bunny - or penguin.

All I know is I don't want to get into the habit of saying Beefy Miracle unironically.

Re: Fedora decides to drop Codenames?

I think release names are useful only to decide the standard theme of the release.
If they decide to drop release names, they will do the same elections to decide themes, so there's no difference to have or not release names...
