Auspicious signs for Maverick

A reader by the name of montini stopped by the OMG! Mailbox to point out something rather neat – if, to many, perfunctory.

If you’re in a country where the new week starts on a Monday (such as the United Kingdom) note that today, Monday and still under the reign of Ubuntu 10.04, is:

10/04/10 (in MM:dd format)

and Sunday, the release date of Ubuntu 10.10, is:

10/10/10

The week starts on 10.04 and ends on 10.10 in both date and version number,

If you live in a country where the new week starts on a Sunday then this is irrelevant ol’ tosh and there’s nothing to see here.
