Hi,

I note that UBUNTU 10.04 includes long term support.

Does this mean that further editions will be reduced?

In addition, what does 'Long term Support' mean. I get the impression that support is voluntary and, therfore, cannot be guaranteed.

Thanks

A

LTS just means that they plan on giving updates for that release for longer than a normal release. It's geared towards computers that would be a hassle to do an entire update to a new release.

A new LTS version is usually released every 2 years. With the Long Term Support (LTS) version you get 3 years support on Ubuntu Desktop, and 5 years on Ubuntu Server. There is no extra fee for the LTS version; we make our very best work available to everyone on the same free terms. Upgrades to new versions of Ubuntu are and always will be free of charge.
