Default It's all in the name?

Fedora have just released the beta version of 18 called... "Spherical Cow". Whoever dreamed that up needs putting out to pasture with a whole herd of them.

They should rather work on making Fedora a better Distro and not making so much fuss about the name. Who cares?

"...Thank you to everyone who participated in voting for the Fedora 18 release name. The name for Fedora 18, the follow-up to Beefy Miracle, is:

Spherical Cow

Voting period: Friday 2012-04-20 00:00:00 to Friday 2012-04-27 00:00:00
Number of valid ballots cast: 429

Using the range voting method, each candidate could attain a maximum
of (429*8) = 3,432

Results:


Votes :: Name
-------------------------------
1359 :: Spherical Cow
1087 :: Halva
1072 :: Chamoy
1035 :: Pamukkale
964 :: Tandoori Chicken
930 :: Frankfurter
821 :: Pop Soda
536 :: Ketchy Ketchup ..."

This is true in one respect but at least we can rely on Chris from Korora to make a decent release out of it and include all the missing bits as standard.
