Ubuntu Versions and their Nicknames

There have been various versions of Ubuntu released. Each version has got its own nickname. I found these nicknames very fascinating and decided to blog about them. Have you noticed one thing ? The versions all seem to end with a .04 or a 0.10. This is because in the fourth month – April of every year, they release a new version of Ubuntu. After a gap of six months, in October(which is the tenth month, they release the next version. Also, the year that the version was released, is also mentioned. For example, 10.04 means that the version was released in April,  2010. These are the various Ubuntu versions and their nicknames :
