Ubuntu 19.10 to Be Dubbed “Eoan Ermine,” Arrives on October 17th

We already knew the first part of the codename of Ubuntu 19.10 as being “Eoan” when Canonical kicked off the development cycle and pushed the first daily builds, but we had no idea which animal that starts with the letter E the company decides to add to the upcoming operating system, and today is has been revealed as the “Ermine”. Ok, so what’s an Ermine you might ask? Well, according to the New World Encyclopedia, the Ermine is a common name given to a small, northern weasel called Mustela erminea. The Ermine is characterized by a long body with short legs, black-tipped and short tail, and a dark brown fur, but only in the summer months because it turns white in the winter.
