Debian GNU/Linux 9.0 Will Be Known as 'Stretch'

On April 26, the Debian Release Team, through Niels Thykier, announced that the next major release of the acclaimed Debian GNU/Linux computer operating system will be named Stretch.

Yes, we are talking about Debian 9.0, whose codename is Stretch, another character from the well-known Toy Story animated movie. If you didn't know, it is a tradition to name major Debian GNU/Linux releases after Toy Story characters.

"Pixar is making Toy Story episodes faster than Debian releases consume them. There are at least 64 toy names left!" says the Debian Project in a tweet, which means that they are not running out of codenames very soon.
