Aha, I've figured out why I find the name of the newest Ubuntu release even more ridiculous than normal!
Intrepid Ibex... urgh. I shall be referring to it as "8.10".
Anyway, it's a naming convention. 'adjective animal', alliteration, blah blah blah. No secret that I do not like it. But let's look at the last few:
- hardy heron
- gutsy gibbon
- feisty fawn
- edgy eft
And the next one will be 'jaunty jackalope'. All with an 'eeeee' sound. These, I can sort of cope with, because it doesn't sound completely moronic just to refer to them by the first work. 'Intrepid', however, does not end in 'y', and therefore fails.
