Ubuntu Naming Convention

Each Ubuntu release is named in two ways. The official name is the year and month combined, separated by a period. The release made in April 2010 was named 10.04, for example.

Releases also have nicknames, decided upon by Mark Shuttleworth, and humorously derived from types of animals. 8.04 has the nickname Hardy Heron. 8.10 is called Intrepid Ibex. Sometimes the animal component is dropped in formal conversation 8.04 is referred to simply as “Ubuntu Hardy”, or just “Hardy”.
