Careful study of the entomology of the release name will illuminate why I chose it.
- Alluvial - something that is created over a very long time. This should be your first Big Clue as to what is to come. Since I am a group of one, don't expect this product to come flying out in record time. In other words don't hold your breath. And since I want a quality release (where I define quality to include as few bugs as possible), you really shouldn't hold your breath.
- Alligator - I live in Florida after all. We have a fair number of Alligator mississippiensis roaming about the state, through canals and retention ponds. We also have Gainesville and the University of Florida (however, I am more of the 'Nole persuasion, and thus a certified Gater Hater). It thus seemed only right and proper to name my first release after such a creature. Besides that, the 'gator is known for it's bone crushing bite, and the fact it will bite you if you get near it at all, which just goes to remind me of many of my encounters with Linux distributions in the past.
