Maya is named after Clem's daughter. So don't be crass, and it is tradition :wink: (http://www.linuxmint.com/oldreleases.php)

It's a tradition? Clem has a new daughter every 6 months or so? Quite the little baby factory going on there. :lol:

*sigh* :lol: No, tradition is the release has a female name ending in the letter a, and the first letter is incremented with each major release.
