Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope"

With the release of 8.10 Intrepid Ibex getting very close, the Ubuntu team have decided to announce the codename of the next version of the operating system. Jaunty Jackalope will be a much bigger leap forward than Intrepid Ibex. My favorite part of the announcement:

"There are some specific goals that we need to meet in Jaunty. One of
them is boot time. We want Ubuntu to boot as fast as possible - both in
the standard case, and especially when it is being tailored to a
specific device. The Jackalope is known for being so fast that it's
extremely hard to catch, and breeds only when lightning flashes. Let's
see if we can make booting or resuming Ubuntu blindingly quick."

I can't wait. Read the full announcement here.
