Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu On his blog, Mark Shuttleworth has outlined a proposal to change how Canonical handles Ubuntu releases. In the proposal, future LTS releases will receive new kernels and software (something we've already seen in 12.04.2 which had a backported Xorg stack from Quantal) and interim releases will only be supported for 7 months instead of 18. Of course, the current situation where you often have to upgrade the whole OS just to get new software and drivers isn't great, so Canonical might be on to something here.

"Slightly more rolling" doesn't roll off the tongue very well. "Semi-rolling" sounds too passe.

Lets invent a new term. How does "lumbering-release" sound?
