Ubuntu 14.04 LTS codename “Trusty Tahr” Announced!

Trusty Tahr is the codename for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS which is scheduled to be released in April 2014. On October 18th 2013, a day after the official release of the much awaited Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Which everyone is busily downloading. Mark Shuttleworth, has just announced, the codename of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is “Trusty Tahr”.

What is Tahr?

From WikipediaTahrs are three species of large Asian ungulates related to the wild goat.” simply Tahrs are wild goats.

Here is part of the blog post from Mark Shuttleworth blog announcement

“So our titular totem, our tamper-proof taboo, our tranquil memento of mission and dues, our topical target of both cry and hue, the name for our LTS thoughtful and true: I give you, as Seuss would, with hullabaloo, the temperate and thrifty, the talented and tactful but ultimately, and tellingly, trusty tahr.”

We can’t wait. ;-D

    If it doesn’t have support of switchable graphic, I think I’m jumping ship. It’s been murder dealing with it for the last two years.

    Why is this post titled “Ubuntu 14.04 LTS codename “Trusty Tahr” Released!” when it’s about the NAME being announced. The release isn’t until next April, as the first sentence of the post says.

    Hi SeaFox, Thanks for the correction. It should have been “Announced” rather. Thanks.
