GNU, GPL, Open Source When Windows Vista was launched, the Free Software Foundation started its BadVista campaign, which was aimed at informing users about what the FSF considered user-restrictive features in Vista. Luckily for the FSF, Vista didn't really need a bad-mouthing campaign to fail. Now that Windows 7 is receiving a lot of positive press, the FSF dusted off the BadVista drum, and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

Ubuntu does have a third solution to that - the LTS versions.

Although, I don't think LTS gets application upgrades, just security updates, but you could use a variation on that theme to reduce resources used updating older OSes, by only updating a specific older OS. Pick an LTS version if you like your kernel and GUI to remain the same, but your apps to upgrade, or pick a normal version if you don't mind an OS upgrade cycle.
