So, the Dapper Drake Beta is out, which marks the first real use of its formal name: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. The LTS distinguishes our Long Term Support releases from the fast-paced, action-packed, high-energy, six-month time-based releases (with an 18 month support period) we’ve seen so far.

But LTS is just begging for some alternative acronym action…

  • Luxury Theatre Seats
  • Leather Trumps Silk
  • Long Tall Sally
  • Lingering Table Sausage
  • Lunch Time Seminar
  • Leaning Toothpick Syndrome
  • Laser Tracking System (we have one of these on GNOME’s Orbital Laser Platform!)

Add your suggestions in the comments! 🙂

  1. Leaning Toothpick Syndrome is the one I’m familiar with. LTS is also a railway running through Barking, where I used to live (it’s the London, Tilbury and Southend line).
