Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

Totally agree. This is a complete deal breaker for me, as well. I refuse to use an OS that requires me to upgrade it every 6 months just to install a newer browser release, new version of OO.org, updated music player, etc...

That's OK, so you won't mind using Ubuntu Lucid LTS then, because it DOESN'T require that of you.

Oh really, so every upgrade of popular software will be automatically available for this release for the next 3 years, will it? I won't have to resort to the command line, fuss with a bunch of special repositories, etc?
