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.

RE[2]: Multi-tier distributions

What would also help if more distributions selected the same base each round.

Agreed. A step in the right direction would be a central "repository" for patches used by the different distributions. Today it's a true PITA to search for all the patches used by different distributions, comb them for "useless" (read: distribution specific) patches and apply those which one can use.

LSB is kind of a step in the right direction, but then again - it's really not.
