Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is the first long-term support release with support for the new "arm64" architecture for 64-bit ARM systems, as well as the "ppc64el" architecture for little-endian 64-bit POWER systems. This release also includes several subtle but welcome improvements to Unity, AppArmor, and a host of other great software.

Is it just me, or do releases of major Linux distributions simply not create much excitement anymore? I remember a time when these releases were hotly anticipated and much debated. These days, they go by and nobody really seems to care. Is this a reflection of shifting focus in the industry - towards mobile - or because the interest in desktop Linux in general has waned considerably?

We can remember years ago when you had long articles. Now what you do is a short "copy paste" (citation) , and then one or two sentences of your own saying your subjective opinion...or even less, just asking something on your own, that in most cases has just rhetoric value.

Where are the article of the past that had also technical information ? Longer aritcles with techincal insight?

What you do is simply doing a copy-paste , then writing a question or short statement, to provoce the users to comment it (and to create the content by themselves).
I think it's a cheap strategy.
