We get people in #ubuntu-uk asking for help. They mostly say things like:-

"The latest one"
"How do I find out?"

If they're 'one of us' they might well say 'lucid' or 'gutsy'.

Isn't that because they _rely_ on the animal branding. The OSX box has
a dirty great snow leopard on the outside. I actually am typing this
on a Mac and I have to make some effort to find out what version of
OSX it is because I don't know. So it's not _quite_ the same. We brand
with numbers and use codenames during development, Apple use the
codename _as_ the brand.
