The K Release

A few days ago it was announced that the Ubuntu release after Jaunty Jackalope will be known as Karmic Koala.  The funny thing is that a few months ago my friends and I were racking our brains for a K adjective and all we could come up with was Keen.  I was sure it would be Keen Koala or Keen Kangaroo.  The most interesting thing about Karmic Koala is that they will supposedly be considering getting away from brown.  Then again, they’ve been going on and on about a new art style for a few releases now.  We’ll see what they actually do.  I’m mostly excited for the new notification style in Jaunty and to see if/how this will be implemented in Crunch Bang Linux.
