Debian and its clones Most mainstream distributions, like Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mandriva, have already adopted a time-based release schedule, meaning that releases are not done on a feature basis, but according to a pre-determined time schedule. The Debian project has announced that it has adopted a time-based release schedule too.

This schedule will align Debian Stable very close to what an Ubuntu LTS will ship.

It will be interesting to see if Ubuntu will ship the Debian versions of the Kernel and Gnome. That would be a fairly major shift towards stability. I would love that for LTS releases.
