    [release]

    Codename:
    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’.

    Release Date:

    What will you be doing come October 18th, 2012? I’m not psychic, but there’s a very good chance you’ll be downloading Ubuntu 12.10.

    The date comes from the tentative release schedule for the post-Precise release, which has been published online.

    In keeping with the last few development cycles a total of 3 alphas and 2 beta releases are planned.

    Alpha 1 is pegged for release on June 7th, with the first beta following a few months later on September 6th.

    The full list of dates is as follows, but do be aware that they are subject to change.

    Alpha 1 – June 7th
    Alpha 2 - June 28th
    Alpha 3 - August 2nd
    Beta 1 - September 6th
    Beta 2 - September 27th
    Ubuntu 12.10 - October 18th

    That name made me automatically cringe.

    Quantal Quetzal? Someone has had to be high while thinking about that name. And even if it is based off a beautiful bird... seriously? It sounds almost like something from the Star Wars :L

    My brain is full of fuck again... but about the Ubuntu, let's hope it will be less buggy this time. I was literally ripping off my hair in the 11.10 and 12.04 Final Beta.

    Being that 12.04 is an LTS release, they have been bug-squashing like crazy, more than usual. And with Unity 5.8, Kernel 3.3, and Gnome 3.4, this release is fabulous so far.

    I thought they used names starting with alphabetically ascending letters?

    It seems like they just decided to skip all the way to Q

    The letter Q definitely comes right after P, they're not using a non-standard alphabet.

    because a name totally is descriptive of stability, features, quality of interface, and ability to easily modify configs.

    oh lol, I went and looked up the release history and they are indeed up to Q.

    Edited:

    I could've sworn they were only up to M or something

    I've used Ubuntu since 7.04 Feisty Fawn, and I love it.

    I'm really looking forward to (hopefully) some better OpenCL support and hopefully some better 'drivers' for AMD/ATi GPUs. I still have trouble running a few games on Linux :\
