    Writing such statement in this forum is somehow kind of party-breaking...

    Me three! I am hanging on to Lucid Lynx right up until April. Plus I have 12.04.1 on here too.
    I guess I will always have 2 of the other releases on here also but, LTS's are for the good, important stuff.

    Me four

    I still test all of the interim releases but I usually start using each LTS as my "stable" OS when the first point release drops.

    Although 9.04 (Jaunty) was an exception, it just worked so well I preferred it to 8.04. Then 10.04 was super great also

    This seems pretty strange:

    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ cat /etc/*release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS"
    NAME="Ubuntu"
    VERSION="12.04.2 LTS, Precise Pangolin"
    ID=ubuntu
    ID_LIKE=debian
    PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu precise (12.04.2 LTS)"
    VERSION_ID="12.04"
    Why would it say this?

    That it says 12.04.2 already. I thought that hadn't been released yet and I have noticed my conky has reported that for quite a while.

    Should it not say 12.04.1 right now?

    They pushed that update here:

    base-files (6.5ubuntu6.5) precise; urgency=low

    * /etc/issue, /etc/issue.net, /etc/lsb-release, /etc/os-release: Bump
    version number to 12.04.2 in preparation for the point release.

    But the official download is still 12.04.1.

    Thanks. I noticed my Lucid install says 12.04.4 even though I did not do a clean install with 12.04.4

    Since everyone is spell checking everyone else lately I assume you mean 10.04.4

    Is there going to be a way of remaining on the binary driver with Ubuntu 12.04.2? (Perhaps with some legacy package to change X.org and other packages to proper/older versions)

    Thanks anyway!
    This is a good question, and one I can't answer, so I thought I'd give it a bump
