Ubuntu 18.10 Operating System Dubbed “Cosmic Cuttlefish” by Mark Shuttleworth

We already knew for about a week or so, when the first daily build ISO images popped-up on the main servers, that Ubuntu 18.10’s codename will start with Cosmic, but we did not new the animal mascot it will be accompanied by. So today Mark Shuttleworth announced the full codename of Ubuntu 18.10 as the “Cosmic Cuttlefish”. According to Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu 18.10 will focus more on the overall security of the Linux-based operating system. Not that Ubuntu or any other GNU/Linux distribution out there is not already very secure by design, thanks to the powerful Linux kernel, but Shuttleworth wants to raise the bar even higher on security for the Ubuntu 18.10 release.
