Google Says Farewell to Desserts

Google deserts desserts: Android 10 is the official name for Android Q

About time! Besides, what dessert begins with the letter Q?

Quote:
Google has officially named the next version of Android, which is due to be released this fall: Android 10. Breaking the 10-year history of naming releases after desserts, the company is bailing on providing a codename beginning with a subsequent letter of the alphabet (in this case, Q), which is the way we’ve been referring to Android up to now. This year is Android 10, next year will be Android 11, and so on.

After a quarter of quiet, the quintessence of Android’s brand has quickly changed without quarrel, resolving a quandary and quitting the quixotic quest to pull a Q dessert out of the quiver. Google won’t quaver on the decision to move away from desserts, which answers a quadrillion querulous questions about the names. Google has decided it is a quaint tradition that needed to be quite quashed — or at least quelled. Instead, the codename will be quarantined inside Google, so I have qualms and feel queasy about the quantity of quips that will queue up quoting the Android source code in an attempt to quibble that the dessert names still qualify as real. It all seems like a quagmire, but at least qualitatively, the new naming scheme is less quirky.
Quote:
Going with a new naming scheme for the 10th version of Android makes a bit of sense; it’s a landmark release. Still, given how difficult it is to put a common dessert to the letter Q, I noted to Google’s Sameer Samat, VP of product management for Android, that it was awfully convenient that Google picked this release to switch up the naming scheme.

that, i think, is a record on the number of "q" words used in an article.

Quenelle? That's the only one that I could think of, and I wasn't even sure what it was.

Can you buy puffed quinoa? Imagine making Rice Krispies treats with that.

Quenepas.
Picked at the right time they are mildly sweet, slightly tangy, and great to suck on. A seasonal fruit they just happen to be in season right now.

(They can also be fermented to make killer booze. Taino indians knew their stuff.)

It didn't look as "advanced" as Windows 10 or iPhone X.

Some people seem to think higher numbers are a sign of superiority.
And they think roman numerals are sexier, than mundane hinduarabics.
But Google went with the mundane me2 way instead of a way more clever "Android 00001010".

Using the English alphabet, they were going to run out of letters. There’s always been a numeric version to every Android release, but maybe they wanted to reserve the possibility of skipping a number, as Windows did going from Windows 8 to Windows 10 (what the heck is wrong with the number 9? Apple skipped it for iPhone as well..). Surely it is not the Curse of the Ninth?:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse_of_the_ninth

If so Google has already been cursed.

I hate Roman numerals. I bet even the Romans hated them. They should never ever ever be used again. It might have been an honest mistake, but it is one of the first things I would want to correct when time travel becomes broadly possible.

In keeping with the times, perhaps there should be an emoji for every release.

What about using the year, like Microsoft did with Windows 95? But make it the full year; Android 2020.

Android 2020 sounds more like a movie.
