webOS 1.0 is "Albacore"
webOS 2.0 is "Blowfish"
webOS 2.1 is "Catfish"
webOS 3.0 is "Dartfish"
Pre to postmortem:
I'm going unofficially code name Open webOS Escolar.
Palm had a two-tier codename system for new software releases: major versions were fish in alphabetical order (webOS 1.0 was "Albacore," for instance), while minor releases were alcohols that started with the same letter (like "Absinthe"). Toward the end of 2009, focus on iterating Albacore — which had started to become a major drain on morale — shifted to Blowfish, better known as webOS 2.0. In some respects, Blowfish is what Palm engineers had wanted to release on day one: it was the true "de-Mercerization" of the platform, to use a term one source floated with us. Unlike Albacore, which still had significant chunks of Prima left behind with special hooks into Luna, Blowfish would be a clean-slate effort with Prima completely removed. For the first time, Java would be entirely gone.
Escolar can be mislabeled in both restaurants and at fish markets. In 2009, as part of a project to create a DNA database of every fish species, scientists from Columbia University and the American Museum of Natural History tested tuna samples from sushi restaurants in New York City and Denver, Colorado. They discovered five of nine restaurants serving fish labeled “white tuna,” “white tuna (albacore)”
or “super white tuna” were actually serving escolar.
