Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After announcing the move to Unity, and the eventual move to Wayland further down the line (someday one day perhaps eventually maybe once when unicorns roam the earth), Ubuntu is announcing yet another major change, this time in its release policy. While they're not moving to a rolling release as some websites are claiming, they will update components and applications more often.

Enterprise wants STABLE software release.

Software on which you can rely on and that is easy to provide support for.

Because if it's old it means it's stable. Like Windows 98.

I see this as an option in software sources > updates > automatic updates.

You will be able to choose whether to get upgrades or just patches.

Enterprises will choose patches.
