    Default Codenames of all suse versions?

    I've been planning to draw (I draw xD kirbyiwaki.deviantart.com) a suse-tan (like a girl mascot for suse), but I want her to have different costumes and stuff, so I think a good idea would be adapt them like the codename versions (in case of 11.4, Celadon).

    Problem is, I can't seem to find older codenames, does anybody has a list of them?

    Thanks in advance!

    I remember 11.2 as Emerald and 11.3 as Teal, but never followed that really
    so I am not sure there were previous names at all. (I use linux since 1995
    which by the way was sold by S. u. S. E. but did not have this name and
    never took care about that).

    AFAIK people here just call them 9.0 ... 11.4, which look is "code" like enough IMHO.

    most folks don't know the code names...and, as far as i know most didn't
    have a code name...they just had a 'real' name, like S.u.S.E Linux 3/94,
    or SuSE Linux 9.0, or openSUSE 10.2..

    its all 'grown up' enterprise software, games and such came from
    Redmond and the code names picked by their marketing department to cause
    a buzzzzzzzzzz in the computer press..

    i well remember how their "Chicago" was promised for _years_ that it
    would be _the_ best software on the planet, and maybe so good there
    would never ever be another..."Chicago" was released as Windows 95..

    anyway, if you can't find a list, what would be the use of using code
    names that no one knows? there is a long list of the real names in this
    article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SUSE_Linux_distributions

    But if we have emerald, teal and celadon... there must be somebody that knows all the code names, even if they are recent. Remember what I want to use them for ;__;

    Perhaps this are all the codenames ever used ;-)

    Well, no, project code names have been in use since before the PC age. I
    don't think Microsoft popularized it, either, I seem to recall that even
    software that predated Microsoft sometimes had a project 'code name' (I
    want to say Visicalc did, as an example). DARPA also had a tendency to
    do this.

    well really!

    of course DARPA would have used project code names, as its roots are in
    matters military...and, code words and code names and project codes have
    been around since long before Bill Gates (or anyone at Visicalc) wore
    his (their) first diaper(s)....probably preceded the abacus..

    i have no idea which software maker popularized it as a marketing
    come-on, but i do know that Redmond was 'selling' the coming of Chicago
    for _years_ before it was released at midnight some evening in late '95..

    and, they have had a vaporware code named project (rumored to cure all
    ills of the current release, AND bake delicious bread) ever since the
    first elephant could fly..
