...the codename "Citrine" for the next version of Linux Lite, looks and sounds similarly to the car company "CitroŽn". Maybe that just shows my love of cars a bit too much. :P

Or Cadillac :)

Sounds fruity to me, the other option was Coral. There just aren't many gemstones that start with C.


Thank you everyone for your honest feedback to date, much appreciated.

Carnelian, Celestite, Cerussite, Chalcedony, Charoite, Chiastolite, Chlorite, Chrysanthemum Stone, Chrysocolla, Chrysoprase, Cinnabar are a few in one book I have.
I only found these in the book I looked , I have some other books on the subject and can look in them if it is of any help.

I should have been more specific, what I should have said is that out of all the gems starting with C, there aren't many that are either easily pronounceable, to long or are not more familiar to people than others.

Great. Now we can call them dynasties instead of series. :)
From Citrine the first to Citrine the fifth will be Citrine dynasty. ;)
Citrine reminds me of lemon. Citrus, Citric acid.
I think Copal is considered a gemstone although it's organic. It's usually full of insects but it would be cool if there was one Lite feather inside.

That just gave me an idea for the wallpapers. We could have series of wallpapers like: feather in a balloon, feather in a lightbulb, feather in a bottle...

Jerry,

I just re-read the original post and realized that the schedule seems to reflect 3 new releases a year (every 4 months) instead of 2 (as was done before).  Is that correct?  Or did you mean to schedule at 6 months intervals for 2 releases per year?

I think we should keep the existing numbering system, for the reasons explained already by others.  I really don't see why it needs to be changed.  There is an established scheme that can be extended in a consistent way. If it ain't broke, ...............

I think the original numbering is much easier to understand and straight forward why waste time on gimmicks? Linux Lite is known for its great OS and the numbering system is part of this simple straight forward philosophy surely.

Please don't change it.

I agree colinkx250 the version numbering system currently used is exact.

If we do end up switching to a name system, I vote for Wirezfree's suggestion -- planets and moons.  (Still prefer numbering system, but if we're going to switch I kind of like his idea.)

May I suggest a poll be created so you can get a more accurate preference representation?

I understand the reason for raising the request, as I have seen this before. However, I have not seen it work well anywhere, as we (mere humans) find it a lot easier to deal with numbers in a sequence.  Code names are great while something gets developed, but a numerical sequential representation provides an anchor and consistency across time and feature set.

I'll get to work setting that up on this thread. We have the feature, why not use it?

I'm quite happy with the numbering system as it is as it is quite clear where we are. Names make it more confusing unless you want to use both Linux Lite 3.0 Citrine.

I agree with an update script as I use a separate LL laptop to do manage all my music files for teh music server (1Tb of FLAC and mp3 files). I use specific multimedia software (mp3Tag, Audacity, MP3Diags, Album Cover Tool, abcde, Easymp3gain). It is a right pain in the bum to reinstall them via wine and installing binaries and re-installing the config files. Not to mention all my favourite other programs. Takes me several hours to get the machine back to where it was before the upgrade.
