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.

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 Name me areas where Linux is using outdated tech ?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.
