Trusty Tahr (Ubuntu Codename)

Trusty Tahr is the Ubuntu codename for version 14.04 LTS of the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system.  Officially released in April 2014, Trusty Tahr follows the Saucy Salamander (v13.10) release and serves as a significant update for Ubuntu, featuring improved integration with OpenStack (including Icehouse support), enhancements to the Unity Linux desktop interface, the new Linux 3.13 kernel and more.

As a long-term support (LTS) release, Trusty Tahr users will receive five years of support from Canonical, the developers of Ubuntu, for the operating system (as opposed to nine months of security updates and support for the non-LTS releases). New Ubuntu LTS releases debut every two years, with the last Ubuntu LTS being the Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin distribution in April 2012.

What Exactly Is a Trusty Tahr?

Trusty is an adjective that refers to someone regarded as reliable or trustworthy, and the Tahr is a horned wild goat found in a number of areas throughout southern Asia.

The Trusty Tahr release of Ubuntu Linux was succeeded by Utopic Unicorn (Ubuntu 14.10) in October 2014.
