Wierd, but...

If you look in Wikipedia under Mentha (Mint) species, there are a lot of different awesome names. For example "aquatica", "crispata", etc. They (of course) sound weird, but that would be closely related to mint.

Anyway, here's the article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mint#Species

Doesn't make sense. :? We're not at "P" and "N" yet, and "A" is out of the question, as we already are past the letter "A" ... and that release was called Ada. :wink: ... see below:

The sense behind a naming system is that you stick to it :wink: Known Linux Mint releases so far:

- Ada (Mint 1.x)
- Barbara (Mint 2.0)
- Bea (Mint 2.1)
- Bianca (Mint 2.2)
- Cassandra (Mint 3.0)
- Celene (Mint 3.1 ?)

So the next one will probably be Daniela ... ?

good points chem. I like those rules.

Having alphabetical order match chronological order is most important in my eyes. Files will automatically be sorted.

I do think that you guys are going a little overboard on naming. Is there really that much difference between gnome mint and kde mint to give it another code name. Its not like its a new model, its just a revision. I'd have to agree with just tagging KDE or GNOME to it. No reason to flood the community with more useless naming terminology,,, thats just elitism.

Wow, I never know that people's discussing 'bout naming here... :o

Guys, just wondering (and I hope it's true), what if our beloved Mint ever exceeded 26.x (the 'Zeta' I guess?). What will the next release's name after 26.x be? Well, I really longing for the 27.x and so.

:D It's DANGEROUSLY beautiful! :D

I'd suppose that you'd have to proceed to Double-Mint
