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.

They can't get upgrades to work. They break systems on each upgrade, yet they want us to believe they'll be able to backport apps (for how long?) and keep everyone happy.

If they only could guarantee that they can provide non-breaking upgrades, this wouldn't be much of an issue. I would gladly wait for the next release if I knew I wouldn't have to re-install because upgrade won't work.

In recent releases (9.10 onwards) I have found upgrading painless.
