Dapper Drake is Breezy+1 September 14, 2005Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.
Mark Shuttleworth has just let it be known that the next version of Ubuntu, after the upcoming Breezy will be known as the “Dapper Drake“. That will be version 6.04, hopefully. If you hadn’t noticed the version numbers are always Y.MM (Year.Month), so 6.04 should be out in April 2006. The community members might refer to the next version after Breezy by saying “Breezy+1”. So yes,
Breezy+1 = Dapper!!
Warty the Warthog
Hoary the Hedgehog
Breezy the Badger
Dapper the Drake
So do I see you wondering what a “drake” is? It is a male duck. Here’s some pictures…
Mark seems to want to add more polish and make this the release to watch out for – the end of two years of work on the part of Ubuntu developers and Canonical. I am sure it will be a compelling alternative choice for users when Vista comes out.
