Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Named �Trusty Tahr�
The tantalising trials of taxonomy are complete: the mascot for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS has been chosen � get used to typing out the name �Trusty Tahr�.
�What�s a�tahr?�, you ask? Google tells me it�s a goat-like mammal found in mountainous areas in Oman, India and the Himalayas.
The sure-footed animal reflects the goals for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which Shuttleworth says, will see conservative choices made on the desktop as it focuses on delivering ��performance, refinement, maintainability [and] technical debt.�
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for servers and desktops is pencilled in for release in April 2014.
