Ubuntu 15.10 Codenamed Wily Werewolf

Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf

Ubuntu 15.04 was released couple of weeks back and has been accepted favorably by Linux community. A seasoned Ubuntu user knows that a new release is shortly followed by announcing the codename of the next release. It took some time, but Canonical founder, Mark Shuttleworth, announced the codename of Ubuntu 15.10 and it is: Wily Werewolf.

The normal naming convention at Ubuntu is a two worded codename and both words start with the same alphabets. While the first world is an adjective, the second is usually named after an endangered species. Werewolf is not exactly an endangered species but this is not the first time Canonical has used a mythical creature in the codename. Earlier, Ubuntu 14.10 was named Utopic Unicorn. More than naming, it would be interesting to see what features Ubuntu 15.10 is going to bring to the table.
