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.

I've always been a fan of ArchLinux and its sane rolling system. Ubuntu should do this, IMHO. They could release a snapshot every 6 months to supply clean installations.

(And, yes, by that it could be the end of the ridiculous out-of-nowhere animal names and weird inflated release versions)
