I have some PCs still on Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop including one that's remote - I realise that desktop updates will be stopped from May 12th, but will the Server packages still be available to Desktop installations for the next 2 years? I believe that APT doesn't know the difference anyway.

I had a look at the announcement but it doesn't cover this question: http://ubuntu-news.org/2011/04/11/ub...n-may-12-2011/
