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?

Yes, and yes.
And it's also Linux Release Burnout. Ubuntu alone has has 20 releases in under ten years. And how many other distros have regular releases? After about a thousand release announcements... yawn.


But there have only been 4 LTS releases.
