Almost every Ubuntu user have a question about the the code name given by Ubuntu with every version they launch.
Canonical launch two version of the this Linux Distro every year (In April & October) & LTS (Long-Term-Support) version in every two year.An Ubuntu release has version number in the format of YY.MM , Where the YY is the year of the release and MM is the month of the release.
So far, there has only been one exception to the Ubuntu releases in the past 11 years.Ubuntu 6.04 was delayed for two months and this is t why it was named as Ubuntu 6.06, instead of the 6.04 as standard naming convention as per release cycle of Ubuntu.
Every version of Ubuntu Linux Comes With Unique & Interesting Code Name (For Example Ubuntu 19.04 will have code name Disco Dingo).
Now everyone wonders why & from where this names comes from , also these code names has any naming convention to be followed By the Foundation.
Here we are going to explain the logic behind every Ubuntu version’s Code name & Naming convention that is followed.
First thing to notice in Ubuntu Code name is that they have two word names where starting Letter of both the words are same (For example, Ubuntu 19.04 will be called Disco Dingo where both first letters of the two words starting with a D).
Ubuntu Version’s code names are made of two words, first being an adjective and the second one is an animal name with the same first letter.
In the example given of Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo , First word Disco is a adjective & Second word Dingo is an Animal name (Here the meaning of Dingo is Dog)
Another interesting fact to notice is that these code names here are incremented alphabetically in each release.
