Ubuntu 12.04 Named Precise Pangolin

Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has announced that the codename for Ubuntu 12.04 will be ‘Precise Pangolin‘.

“12.04 is an LTS. So we want it to be tough and long-lasting, reliable, solid as a rock and well defended. It’s also going to be the face of Ubuntu for large deployments for a long time, so we want it to have no loose ends, we want it to be coherent, neat.

“We’ve told the story of the cloud in previous releases, and that comes to fruition in 12.04 with the first LTS that supports both the cloud guest, and cloud infrastructure, across ARM and x86 architectures. We’ve also told the story of Unity in previous releases, and that comes to fruition in a fast, lean interface that works well across clients both thick and thin. 12.04 is going to be a lot more than all that, but for the full reveal, you’ll need to wait till UDS! Nevertheless, we can take reliability, precision, and polish as a given.

Balancing all of those options, I think we have just the right mix in our designated mascot for 12.04 LTS. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Precise Pangolin.”

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is due for release in April 2012.

    It is no wonder that distrowatch has had so many hits for LinuxMint in the past 6 months. I don’t doubt that they will pull it off but I fail to realize how.

    Since their following is moving towards other distros.
