You mean the Jazz names? Ella, et. al?

I think no one even knows them. Look at Ubuntu - they don't ever
publicly call Feisty Fawn "Ubuntu 7.04," so that's what the customers
call it.

If WordPress 2.2 headlines said: "WordPress Zippy Zebra Released" that's
what people would call it. But they read the headlines, it says:

"WordPress 2.2 Released!"

something something lorem epsum something something
BTW, WordPress 2.2 is codename "Zippy Zebra"


Go download WordPress 2.2


No wonder people call it WordPress 2.2 or WP22 for short :P

(And, yes, I do use DVORAK.. See how beautiful all those clustered
vowels look? :P)

(And WTF is wrong with GnuPG? "Problem with Agent" even when I try it
without --use-agent.... Maybe I'll start using Ciphire instead.. or go
back to Windows[!] - so excuse this unsigned message.)
