Warty ready to Retire
<p>After eighteen months of faithful service, Ubuntu 4.10 (aka the Warty Warthog), will be end-of-lifed on 30 April 2005. Matt Zimmerman made the expected <a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2006-March/000061.html">notice</a> on the announcement mailing list, along with the upgrade path for those of you still running Warty:</p>
<blockquote ><p>The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 4.10 is via Ubuntu 5.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at <a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HoaryUpgradeNotes">Hoary Upgrade Notes</a>. Note that upgrades to version 5.10 and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via an upgrade first to 5.04, then to 5.10.

Surely that's 30 April 2006, right?

Anyway, how many people do you think use Warty? I think they are few, if any. Upgrading is a simple apt-get command away.
Re: A year-o?
if they have internet connection...
Re: Warty ready to Retire
warty was a dam good first release!
it was the first distro that stood on my hd and with warty i became a real linux lover. now a bit more than one year later i learned to love linux (especially ubuntu and debian) and hell i kicked microsoft off my harddisk.
Thanks to all the developers, and all the people in the forum & the mailing lists. keep up the good work!
One soul saved
