Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "I'm writing to propose a six week delay in the release date of Dapper, in order to do additional validation, certification, localisation, and polish. Work towards our feature goals for Dapper is very much on target. However, in some senses Dapper is a 'first' for us, in that it is the first 'enterprise quality' release of Ubuntu, for which we plan to offer support for a very long time. I, and others, would very much like Dapper to stand proud amongst the traditional enterprise linux releases from Red Hat, Debian and SUSE as an equal match on quality, support and presentation." And on a related note, Ubuntu now runs on Sun's UltraSPARC T1 (Niagara) processor too.

not a bad idea

Member since:

the reasons for the delay are sound, and I think it's a good idea - especially if it doesn't screw up the syncing of the rest of the releases
