The xubuntu help and support page statesIt is my understanding that starting with 12.04 the Ubuntu support duration is 5 years on both server and desktop. Is this not true of the Ubuntu variants?Below you’ll find a plethora of resources that will make getting help and resolving issues a snap. Getting help with Xubuntu is easy! The currently supported Xubuntu releases are:
Precise Pangolin 12.04 LTS, until April 2015
I am considering Xubuntu as an alternative to Unity but I would like to have a longer support timeline. Can anyone clarify this for me?
