Ubuntu is well-known for its odd, creative and alliterative codenames that it assigns to OS releases. Version 4.10, for example, was codenamed "Warty Warthog." Version 5.04 was called "Hoary Hedgehog," followed by "Breezy Badger," "Dapper Drake," "Edgy Eft," "Feisty Fawn," "Gusty Gibbon," "Hardy Heron," "Intrepid Ibex," "Jaunty Jackalope," "Karmic Koala," "Lucid Lynx," "Maverick Meerkat," "Natty Narwhal," "Oneiric Ocelot" and, most recently, "Precise Pangolin."
