    Lucid still updating ?

    I've just seen a few updates (libgnutls-dev,ibgnutils2,dhcp3-client,dhcp3-common) for 10.04 Lucid : I'm curious,is that normal ? Does a recently superseded release still receive occasional security updates ?

    And I'd expect to only see security updates for packages that a server might use, since the server version doesn't go EoL for another almost 2 years. For future LTS releases, this will be different as the server and desktop versions will both be supported for 5 years.

    If you're running the Server version, you will only get very few updates, as dino99 said (and ignore the next sentence).
    If you're running the Desktop edition, it has run out of support and there will be no more updates. Please update to a newer release of Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes

    I'm using the desktop edition,and I'm positive that there are,as I'm writing this,those few updates that I've listed available.
    And I'd expect to only see security updates for packages that a server might use, since the server version doesn't go EoL for another almost 2 years
    maybe is something like that,which I would call (if it were actually the case) a very savvy move on Ubuntu's part:since the server edition has still 2 years of life left,why not share at least the basic security updates with the desktop version ? It wouldn't cost much,I suppose.

    Which brings us to the point that of course I know that there are updated releases of Ubuntu,and that's exactly why I'm still on Lucid:I've decided that newer versions are not my cup of tea when I tried the first betas of 11.04.

    Not really... of course I've been keeping an eye on what has been released after Lucid,tried the live CDs,even done some 12.04 virtualbox installations,nothing fits the bill as Lucid for me-and I have no reason to believe that 13.04 will be better,from my standpoint.

    How bout 12o4 with gnome-classic desktop?

    Its a knock-off of your old 10o4 desktop. Here's some tricks for it.

    Same here. I have used Ubuntu since Breezy Badger but the introduction of Unity and EOL for Lucid has led to a parting of the ways for me.

    If you want to keep the look and feel of a "traditional" Linux distro like Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) then I can recommend Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE). The MATE desktop, in particular, is very similar in function as it retains the Gnome2 applications (albeit renamed!) and works well with "older" machines. LMDE/MATE is a worthy successor to the best Ubuntu releases IMHO.

    As another alternative;
    How 'bout installing the 13.04 minimal ...and add only what you want ?

    I am presently so engaged, very pleasantly surprised at the results:
    xfce4 for the desk top environment -> fast !
    gedit for my program editor (gotta find some icon themes)
    google-chrome for my browser -> fast !

    I have managed to turn this into quit a learning experience ...but the installs are painless.

    just my bit

    Happy ubuntu'n !
