In honour of Ubuntu 17.04 the new unisex aubergine shirt bears the Ubuntu 17.04 ‘Zapus’ mouse artwork in a pumpkin orange colour.

Announcing the Ubuntu 17.04 codename last year, Mark Shuttleworth explained why he chose the Zapus mouse to be the ‘face’ of Ubuntu 17.04:

“We are a tiny band in a market of giants, but our focus on delivering free software freely together with enterprise support, services and solutions appears to be opening doors, and minds, everywhere.

”So, in honour of the valiantly tiny leaping long-tailed over the obstacles of life, our new 17.04 release, is hereby code named the ‘Zesty Zapus’.”
