Interesting Things – (Linux Kernel Names)

I’d like to turn this post as a template for future one’s on similar lines. About the little things in technology make the geek in me chuckle once in a while, when I’m fighting deadlines and general annoyances.

I recently found out that Linux has quirky names for their Kernel Version. Started with Greased Weasel (1.3.51) and the most recent one with Saber-toothed Squirrel (3.2-rc1-). The more interesting ones I found were:

  • Sheep on Meth
  • Jeff Thinks I Should Change This, But To What?
  • Man-Eating Seals of Antiquity
