Ubuntu 13.04 to be Called Raring Ringtail, Emphasis on Mobile and Battery Life
Canonical has used a variety of alliterative codenames for Ubuntu releases, with ones like Oneiric Ocelot, Precise Pangolin, and Quantal Quetzel being some of the most recent revisions. The upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 is no different, as Canonical is calling the new release Raring Ringtail. Among the numerous alliterations in CEO Mark Shuttleworth's blog comes some information concerning 13.04. For starters, Canonical is focusing on the phone, tablet, and TV market, with the first two emphasizing battery life, the number of running processes, and memory size, to name a few. However, Ubuntu 13.04 is not going to be a full-fledged mobile OS by the time it launches, but rather nailing down some specifics to make it a viable alternative. Canonical launched Ubuntu 12.10, Quantal Quetzel, earlier today, and does not expect a full release of Raring Ringtail until next spring.
