Re: Why must LTS die?
While I do agree with LTS releases, there are some things that push users/server operators to update to newer releases and/or give them serious headaches.
For example (seriously, this is just an example, dont fire at it...), you have probably heard of the RT Request Tracker, which Canonical uses for ticket management. I tried setting up that thing on 12.04 with LDAP Integration. It never happened, because 12.04 was missing a package required for LDAP integration (rt4-extension-authenexternalauth), which mysteriously appeared in 12.10. If I were an administrator in a company who was looking at long term support, and wanted to setup RT, I would be looking to use 12.04, which I wouldn't be able to use since it is missing the integration for AD/LDAP that is used.
a) Company goes, whacks RT a few times, and compiles it manually
b) Goes to some other distro where the package actually exists, while having LTS
c) .etc .etc
It is mainly these random situations that I have against LTS releases

Okay then. We're relying on mirror dust and fairies but now we have a plan which is progress - Emma
