Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After announcing the move to Unity, and the eventual move to Wayland further down the line (someday one day perhaps eventually maybe once when unicorns roam the earth), Ubuntu is announcing yet another major change, this time in its release policy. While they're not moving to a rolling release as some websites are claiming, they will update components and applications more often.

What's your definition of maintaining? I think he's referring to straight-up installation. You want the new Firefox? Go to firefox.org and download it. You don't have to wait for your flavor of distro to roll it out via the repo. And you don't often have to worry that any prereqs for the app are going to break your other apps, just as it's rare for a Windows Update to break things. Updates and service packs might break custom or in-house enterprise apps, but i don't think it's an issue most general users face.
