So, one can be depressed, tired and sad as much as he want, and then Mandriva can take him up and let him laugh as he didn’t in quite a bit… 🙂
I have first to say that I’m sorry for the Mandriva developers, really, I’m not trying to make a fool of you, but this makes at least smile after reading, and I know you didn’t do this on purpose, but it’s still funny to me 🙂
Frédéric Crozat announces on Planet GNOME the release of GNOME 2.16 and its availability on the new Mandriva release: Mandriva Linux 2007.0 Release Candidate 1 (codename Mona)
So now you’ll be asking me what I find of funny in that (if you’re not North-Italian)… well, “Mona” in Venice dialect (and other dialects derived or infected, which means about the whole North-East of Italy), has two meanings, none of which is really a compliment 😉
The first, is a variant of “fool”, that I’d feel like an equivalent of English’s “git”; the other is an anatomic reference to a (lower) part of woman’s body…
Now the jokes about that release will probably be on the topics of all the LUGs of the region 😀
And of course, as also Luca proposed, we should propose that the next release (rc or final) will be called “Belin” for the equity of North-West Italy 😉
Surprisingly, here in Argentina (for those US citizens who don’t know, we speak spanish ;), a girl who is “mona” (ie. “una chica mona”) is a pretty one.It’s not very common (it used to be some years ago), but it’s widely known. I don’t know if other spanish-speaking countries use that term too.
