I'm sure people do. It is supported until Apr 2012.

I have nothing against 10.10 (it used to work great for me), but all of my computers are new(ish) and more recent ubuntu's run better for me. But hey, if 10.10 works for you, that's all that matters.

I am. I need advice on where to go next. I love 10.10. I tried Mint, Kde, Unity and others. I am just not happy with any of them. What is the next best thing to 10.10. I wish someone would continue developing where Ubuntu left off. I would do it if I could. I am taking a 3 year coding course now and it is only my second term. Maybe in three years I can start my own distro. For now I need to rely on what is available. I have been using Ubuntu since Hardy Heron. It seems to me that just when they got it right they decided to go in the wrong direction. I am currently running Win7, Vista, WinXP, Mint11, Ubuntu Natty, oops Never mind I dumped it for 10.10. so I have 2 10.10 laptops right now. Yes I use them all. I really want the closest thing possible to 10.10 that is not Mint, somebody has to have something out there! Please help!

I am still using 10.10 because it's so full of awesomeness - the type of awesomeness that is sadly missing from 11.04 and 11.10 :(. But don't take my word for it. Here is a small example of my 10.10 desktop running on a MacBook Pro:

In regards to future development of 10.10, there is 'Elementary OS' (or it may be called 'Jupiter OS'). It's still very early stages, but looks promising. What I like about Elementary's philosophy is form, function, and beauty are the primary goals and focus. It is the Elementary theme (along with my own personal Emerald theme) that is used in the YouTube video above.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Ubuntu 10.10, FTW!

Hey, good question. I'm still on 10.10 on both my desktop and laptop. Any suggestions as to whether I should upgrade to 11.04->11.10?

I would like to avoid a fresh (re)install of 11.04/11.10, since there is too much stuff to redo.

April 2012 doesn't seem too far off, especially when viewed from this side of December 2011.

My current thinking is to upgrade first, and hope for the best. If all else fails, install a fresh 11.10 but I'd appreciate any advice.

Ubuntu 10.10, 64 bit.
System specs: Home built, Pentium Dual Core 1.6Ghz / 2GB RAM / nVidia 7200
Laptop specs: Lenovo S10-3t, Intel Atom n455 / 2GB RAM
Tech level: intermediate-high.

Using a heavily modded 10.10 from an external USB drive for some support issues. The drive is partitioned out 16GB and the rest of a 750GB goes to handling dd-rescue. I've got the drive booting the 3.x kernel and have changed the look/layout. So far, I've had a ton of luck with the setup to recover nearly destroyed hard drives. I think even after the EOL, I'll still use it specifically for what I'm doing with it.

Ubuntu 10.10 has too much awesomeness, which is probably why it's not on every desktop today (because user heads would explode from awesomeness overload):

this topic will be locked for necromancy, you'd be better off creating a new topic for this

That, and as of April, Ubuntu 10.10 isn't supported anymore anyway.
