From the release notes regarding the release of Ubuntu 10.10 on Sunday Oct 10, 2010 (10/10/10)
Some time ago a group of hyper-intelligent pan dimensional beings decided to finally answer the great question of Life, The Universe and Everything. To this end, a small band of these Debians built an incredibly powerful distribution, Ubuntu. After this great computer programme had run a very quick 3 million minutes…or 6 years the answer was announced. The Ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is…42, and in its purest form 101010. Which suggests that what you really need to know is ‘What was the Question?’. The great distribution kindly pointed out that what the problem really was that no-one knew the question. Accordingly, the distribution designed a set of successors, marked by a circle of friends…to ultimately bring Unity to all things living…Ubuntu 10.10, to find the question to the ultimate answer.
