Agree 100% about “Jelly Bean” and “Ice Cream Sandwich”. Absolute shockers, especially the latter.

Well all the names are supposed to be sugary treats or desserts and I guess they don’t want it to be too plain (e.g. ‘Ice cream’)
(In case you didn’t notice, the Android names are in alphabetical order)

Ubuntu has a similar naming convention with animals
I’m using Quantal Quetzal (12.10) on my laptop and Maverick Meerkat (10.10) on my development virtual machine. I’d like to have kept Karmic Koala (9.10) but it’s well out of date :)

Microsoft seem to be all over the place using several methods.
Windows 3.1, 7, 8
Windows NT, XP, Vista
Windows 95,98,2000,2003,2008
