I am reading that Ubuntu 13.04 (and Xubuntu, too) will be supported for _ONLY_ nine months.
Why just 9 months? What after those 9 months? Installing (yet again) the new version? I thought one would be rid of installing a new version every time again (like with Windows), but it seems that Ubuntu (at least) is becoming just like MS Windows. Why not sticking with one version for several years; like LTS editions?
Only nine months. Isn't this, kind of, insane?
