What Popular Operating System Has Sugary Sweet Code Names?

NetWare
Ubuntu
Linux Mint
Android

Answer: Android

Code names can take on all manner of themes–like Apple’s cat theme for OSX–but Google opted to go with a sugary sweet spin on code naming for their mobile operating system Android.

The first version had no code name but by the time it worked its way into public consumption it was sporting a delicious code name: Cupcake. From there on Android code names have named after things sweet treats: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo (Frozen yogurt), Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and IceCreamSandwich.

Although naming software after treats is rather uncommon, there is one other notable code name series with a sweet spin. The code names assigned to Sugar on a Stick–a version of Fedora Spin Live designed to support the Sugar Learning Platform, an educational suite originally designed for the One Laptop Per Child initiative–are fruit-based like Strawberry, Blueberry, and Pineapple.
