Wow, a year does pass by fast these days, Robin Williams was a great person in heart, and anyone who reads the link that hollowface proves it. Raised money for the homeless & other benefits, plus never forgot his friend in Christopher Reeves.
Those are marks of a great hearted person, and while he did have his inner demons, not a single one of us can say we're perfect. Including myself.
As to the reason why Clement Lefebvre named all of his distros after females, other than the soon coming 17.3, of which Robin is also used in female names, I don't know the specifics on that. Yet I do & will always remember the version that made me fall in love with Linux Mint was version 7, otherwise known & remembered as Gloria by me & others. At the time, Linux Mint was still an up & comer, yet a huge one & by then surely the folks at Canonical knew they had contention.
In fact, to this day, still run the Gloria wallpaper on my computer, which was brought back by popular demand.
