Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "For the longest time Canonical has slapped an LTS moniker on some of their Ubuntu releases. Currently, a new major release of the operating system happens every six months, and is supported for 18 months after release. Whereas in the past when LTS versions received two years support or more, the current model - starting with 12.04 - supports new LTS releases for five years. However, a recent public Google Hangouts session revealed that Canonical has been thinking about switching from the venerable LTS model to a rolling release, starting with version 14.04."

Canonical apparently didn't get the memo that it nor Ubuntu is still relevant. Sorry, but when you ignore your users and crawl out on a limb, you do so at your own peril.

Compare Ubuntu to other Linux distros on http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2012-10/SquidRepor... (also, check out trends http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/ ). Ubuntu looks like pretty much the only non-Android Linux that is really growing.
