Ubuntu 12.10 Named ‘Quantal Quetzal’

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Ubuntu 12.10 finally has a codename – Quantal Quetzal.

Writing (in lavish quantities of alliteration) on his blog, Mark Shuttleworth gave reasoning behind the codename for the Ubuntu 12.10 release, which, he says, will largely focus around ‘Quality’.

Quality comes from focus and clarity of purpose, it comes from careful design and rigorous practices.

And, in order to live up to the ‘resplendent’ bird it’s named after, Shuttleworth says:

Q will be all about style on the client, with a refresh of our theme and typography, a start on new iconography and perhaps even a new form factor taking flight.
