Utopic Unicorn (Ubuntu Codename)

Utopic Unicorn is the Ubuntu codename for version 14.10 of the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system. Officially released in October 2014, Utopic Unicorn follows the Trusty Tahr (v14.04 LTS) release and introduces a variety of improved application deployment and orchestration capabilities.

Other additions in the Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn release include the new Linux 3.16 kernel, the Juno release of OpenStack, a new AppArmor with fine-grained socket control, and updated LibreOffice and GNOME components.

What Exactly Is a Utopic Unicorn?

Utopic is an adjective that refers to a real or imaginary place or state that is considered to be perfect or ideal in nature (i.e. utopia), and a unicorn is a mythological creature that typically appears as a horse with a single horn extending from its forehead.

The Utopic Unicorn release of Ubuntu Linux was succeeded by Vivid Vervet (Ubuntu 15.04) in April 2015.
