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.

You might think that but I'm afraid the sign of success is that you have a lot of people using a wide variety of older systems. The reason why no one runs a nine year old Linux system, on their desktop anyway, is because no one uses it.

I'm sure there are nine year old Linux server systems that haven't been upgraded simply because they'll be running applications quite happily, and there isn't the time or the urge to mess with them because someone on OSNews thinks they should be upgrading continually.

It doesn't work like that.
