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.

"Yeah who would want to run an os that has proven it self to be stable enough to run in a production enviropment where it might be part of a cnc and what not... You do realise that the desktop/servers arent the only place you'll see an os right? "



Stop right there perfect example of spreading Fear Uncertainty and Doubt.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vREspQG6ayQ -- German Air Traffic Control completely running Suse Linux, because its constantly updated that means Linux is unstable according to you, so unstable in fact that the Germans are willing to move all of their air traffic control systems over to Suse Linux..

http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1008257/faa-switches-air-t... -- FAA switches air traffic control to Linux , even the Americans are doing it.


If Linux was in any way unstable do you think it would even be considered for air traffic control ?

Being able to run OpenOffice 3 on an obsolete version of Linux is absolutely pointless and proves nothing about stability or anything else for that matter. In fact being able to sacrifice backwards compatibility enables better, faster, more stable and more secure libraries because your not left with having to support dodgy API's dodgy undocumented quirks. This is what I mean by constantly evolving.

So yeah thanks for proving my point ..

So your saying because they are switching they will update every 6 months or what ever the release schedule are for those distros?

Did i mention OO 3? Or any other new version of a piece of software that i would want to run on an older version of a OS?


So yeah thanks for proving my point ..


I did'nt. You seem to think i wrote stuff i didn't to make it seem so. But i'm sure that you will eventually get your head of out your behind and see that your just making a fool out your self.

What did you write ? Your point was what exactly? I re-read over your post and other than a complete FUD statement the rest is b*ll.

So your saying because they are switching they will update every 6 months or what ever the release schedule are for those distros?


So you trying to imply they will never upgrade their systems ? Are you trying to imply they will not in anyway update their systems over a 9 year period ?

I dont even think you understand the whole thread of conversation that went on before.. Its you whose comments make no sense, I suggest you re-read the earlier comments..


Who cares if it runs open office now?


??? This makes absolutely no sense.

I do agree with you here. The idea of a central point for software install and update are better then what we see on windows.


This only serves to prove nxsty and I right..

Are you serius trying to make it appear as if it's a linux thing only? Or just trying to make it look like linux was the first with a way to do central updating?


No I am saying Linux was first, Microsoft Copied the auto-update features from Unix Land more specifically from Linux.

And what is sudo? A veriation su?


No Sudo is much more than Su, surely you must know this. The point is, its nothing new to anyone thats used Linux, its just Microsoft playing catch up once again.

Linux? Don't you think you should give credit where due?


Did you understand my comment ?


Allways at the forefront of technology? Oh yeah right.


It was the first to support x86_64 the first to support hypervisor technology, the first for SAS/SATA ... Name me areas where Linux is using outdated tech ?


Good for you. But what part of what you did for your parents are imposible to do on a windows box?


Do this on windows box:

See what I mean ? Everything has easy access. Its molded around their needs, because they both have bad eye sight. This is not their actual desktop, but a quick mock-up of how I set it up for them and its easy to do.
