10th day of the 10th month in 10th year, Ubuntu released 10.10 , a perfect date to denotes geekiness at its best 1010101010 🙂 Kidding aside, here’s the excerpt
Coming from the Meerkat department
Some time ago a group of hyper-intelligent pan dimensional beings decided to finally answer the great question of Life, The Universe and Everything. To this end, a small band of these Debians built an incredibly powerful distribution, Ubuntu. After this great computer programme had run (a very quick 3 million minutes…or 6 years) the answer was announced. The Ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and
Everything is…42, and in its’ purest form 101010. Which suggests that what you really need to know is ‘What was the Question?’. The great distribution kindly pointed out that what the problem really was that no-one knew the question. Accordingly, the distribution designed a set of successors, marked by a circle of friends…to ultimately bring Unity to all things living…Ubuntu 10.10, to find the question to the ultimate answer.
Ubuntu team announced Ubuntu 10.10 with Codenamed “Maverick Meerkat”. Official announcement can be seen at https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2010-October/000139.html.
