安卓系统中止美食命名法

Alyssa Newcomb 2019年08月27日

系统命名已经排到了Q,谷歌的员工决定中止这套命名法。

自2009年以及推出安卓纸杯蛋糕(Android Cupcake)系统以来,谷歌按照字母表的排序,使用以该字母开头的甜品名为每个新版移动操作系统命名。然而,谷歌的产品管理副总裁萨米尔·萨玛特称,这家搜索巨头对这场甜品盛宴已经相当满足,而安卓馅饼(Android Pie)系统就是最后一道甜品。

确实如此,谷歌那些用美味点心(从冻酸奶到牛轧糖)为其作品命名的天才们从字母Q中找到了灵感——直接退出(quit)这一游戏。

萨玛特在一篇博文中写道:“这个命名传统已经成为了每年系统发布的一项趣事,但多年来我们听到的反馈是,并非全球社区的所有用户都了解这些名字的含义。”

鉴于安卓生态系统目前已经拥有25亿台设备,安卓的新命名规则旨在选用那些“?#26434;?#21508;地用户来?#23548;?#31616;单明了,又息息相关”的代号。因此,将于几周后发布的最新版安卓系统将采用一个简短、平实的名称——安卓10。

(尽管字母表中的第三个字母“C”和第十六个字母“P”存在数字和版本不一致的情况,但安卓馅饼(Android Pie)系统是该移动操作系统的第九个版?#23613;#?/p>

安卓10系统目前还处于测试阶段,它将拥有手势导航方面的变化以及其他特色,包括流行的夜间模式,以及全新的品牌形象。

平心而论,Q是一个令人十分头疼的字母。谷歌原本可以将其食物主题扩大到零食的?#27573;В?#20363;如乳蛋饼(quiche)或干酪(queso),但这样做只会越来越麻?#22330;?#22240;为字母U、V、X似乎会让安卓的美食家们陷入无词可用的困?#22330;?/p>

这则新闻?#26434;?#20805;满乐趣的硅谷传统来说是一个喜忧参半的结局。然而,现实就是如此。(财富中文网)

Since 2009 and its launch of Android Cupcake, Google has worked its way through the alphabet, naming each new version of its mobile operating system after a dessert that starts with the same letter. But according to Sameer Samat, Google’s vice president of product management, the search giant has had its fill of desserts, ending the buffet with Android Pie.

That’s right, the Google geniuses who have branded their work with tasty treats ranging from Froyo to Nougat took a cue from the letter Q and simply quit.

“This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year,” writes Samat in a blog post. “But we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community.”

Android’s new naming convention is aimed at making monikers that are “clear and relatable for everyone in the world,” an ecosystem that now includes 2.5 billion devices. As a result, the newest version of Android, which will be released in a few weeks, will be called the short and not-so sweet, Android 10.

(Despite the incongruence between “C,” the third letter of the alphabet, and “P,” the 16th, Android Pie was the ninth version of the mobile operating system.)

Currently in beta, Android 10 will bring changes to gesture navigation and other tweaks, including the popular dark mode, as well as new branding.

To be fair, Q is a tough one. Google could’ve expanded its food theme to include snacks, such as quiche or queso, but it only would’ve gotten worse down the line. U, V, and X also seem like they could leave Android’s flavor savers in a real pickle.

The news marks a bittersweet ending for a fun Silicon Valley tradition. But hey, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
