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?

It seems to me that not much changes for the end user each release it takes a few releases before things actually change that much. They are more like glorified update bundling. To be fair I don't use linux much or often simple because of lacking of gaming support. I am only actually watching steamOS with interest inhopes that it will take off creating gaming on linux. If that happens I would start looking at linux distros again with more interest.
