Ubuntu 10.10 is “Maverick Meerkat”

By Ricky on April 3rd, 2010 

Today Mark Shuttleworth announced the name of the next Ubuntu release after 10.10 - "Maverick Meerkat".

These are what Shuttleworth is aiming for in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat:

  • Fast Boot, as always.
  • More Social Networking Features.
  • Better Netbook Functionalities

This is what Shuttleworth wrote:

Meerkats are, of course, light, fast and social – everything we want in a Perfect 10. We’re booting really fast these days, but the final push remains. Changes in the toolchain may make us even faster for every application. We’re Social from the Start, but we could get even more tightly connected, and we could bring social features into even more applications. Meerkats are family-oriented, and we aspire to having Ubuntu being the safe and efficient solution for all the family netbooks. They are also clever – meerkats teach one another new skills. And that’s what makes this such a great community.

Lets all hope that the Maverick Meerkat lives upto its name.
