Ubuntu 15.04 Name to Be Vivid Vervet

Mark Shuttleworth has just announced that Ubuntu 15.04 will be called Vivid Vervet:

“In my favourite places, the smartest thing around is a particular kind of monkey. Vexatious at times, volant and vogie at others, a vervet gets in anywhere and delights in teasing cats and dogs alike. As the upstart monkey in this business I can think of no better mascot. And so let’s launch our vicenary cycle, our verist varlet, the Vivid Vervet!”

According to Wikipedia, the Vervet is a monkey that can be found “throughout Southern Africa and some of the eastern countries.”
