Dibyo is right, I have missed this dude below.. one of my all-time favorites.


Yes, they are all famous jazz artists. But thats not the answer.

WordPress, the awesome and uber-famous blogging software’s releases are named after famous jazz artists, mainly because the developers love jazz music.

Charles Mingus
Billy Strayhorn
Duke Ellington
Ella Fitzgerald
Stan Getz
Dexter Gordon

and I missed “Miles”  Miles Davis which was the code name for release 1.0.1

WordPress powers Boiledbeans and if you Scroll all the way down, you can see a “Powered by WordPress” line, which was the hint in the subject line ;)
