Yesterday, while writing the release notes for Kubuntu.org, I asked for some title names by telling people to fill in the blanks. The results? Some of them were pretty funny, and some were pretty frightening, and one I really liked. Here are some for your viewing pleasure:

This is what happens when you ask such a question to sleep deprived developers on the eve of release. Anyways, Kubuntu 7.10 is out, it kicks arse, and I am proud to have worked with the greatest group of developers that I have ever worked with. So what are you waiting for, go DOWNLOAD it already!
Thanks to every person who filed a bug report, who fixed a bug, who thought about fixing a bug, who packaged a bug, who repackaged the package to fix that bug, who answered a question on the user lists, who answered a question on IRC, who…ahh hell! Thank You Everyone!!!
