As has become a tradition, Mark Shuttleworth has published in your blog the name or nickname of the next version of Ubuntu. Usually Shuttleworth usually creates a somewhat vague blog entry to express the next cycle of Ubuntu, which is what it will have, what aspects it will focus on and why this name is chosen. In this case the leader of Ubuntu has been parked in words and has expressed the name: yakkety Yak.
If we really like cinema, surely you all already know the Yak, the mythical pack animal living in Tibet. An animal that is usually accompanied by a Sherpa or mountain guide. This animal will be the symbol of Ubuntu 16.10, an animal that looks like its quality will be that of a chatterbox and heavy.
Yakkety Yak appeared as a reference in the Ubuntu 16.10 code
Yakkety is a vague term that comes to mean a lot and is used in many fields, but it seems that the best term that resembles Yakkety is the term “cotorrear”. So the new name for Ubuntu 16.10 would be the «Yak CotorreadorOr “the heavy Yak.”
In any case the name is already fixed since if we look at the Ubuntu repository, the name Yakkety Yak appears as the nickname of a version of Ubuntu. Unfortunately we would like to say more about the new version, but we know nothing, which could indicate that Ubuntu 16.10 could have Unity 8 as standard and hence the nickname insistent. The truth is that Ubuntu 16.10 is a non-LTS version that could well incorporate new features that were not introduced in Ubuntu 16.04, as well as MIR or Unity 8, but it can also be the arrival of LXD and the new application package What do you think? What news do you think will come to Yakkety Yak?
