Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope

It was recently announced by Mark Shuttleworth that Ubuntu 9.04 will be codenamed Jaunty Jackalope. I just wanted to summarize the main goals in the next version of Ubuntu:
  • Ubuntu on over a million devices
  • Faster boot time
  • Integrate web applications with the desktop
More is being planned and more ideas will be shared come the Developer Summit.
Just to note: the jackalope isn't a real animal....

[...] Ubuntu on over a million devices [...]

Ubuntu might have better luck if its goal were to fix a million bugs.
