    OS Names

    I love animals, so naturally I like Apple's affinity for cats, as evidenced by the OS X versions Tiger and Leopard, along with the forthcoming Snow Leopard.

    Since I'm from West Dakota, I also love jackalopes. So I was tickled to learn about an Ubuntu version named Jaunty Jackalope. Apparently, Ubuntu's next upgrade will be Karmic Koala.

    I'm not really sure if Ubuntu's naming scheme is cool or corny, but it's certainly interesting. Personally, I think snow leopards and jackalopes are about as cool as you can get. I'm pretty sure we'll never see an OS named Two-Toed Sloth or Dung Beetle.

    Fortunately, there are plenlty of animals to choose from.

    I've had a few that could have been named Road Kill.

    P.S. I neglected to mention Mozilla's browser/e-mail names - like Thunderbird and Firefox. They're now working on a Firefox browser for mobile devices named Fennec, after a big-eared desert fox.

    The next version of Windows should be labelled "Radioactive Chicken"
    The next version of Mac should be labelled "Supersonic Dolphin"
    The next version of Ubuntu should be labelled "Golden Ferret"
