    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    LTS = Long Term Support = 5 years.

    And your information from the Internet is incorrect in another way. Not 18 months but 9 months. Used to be 18 months for interim releases (the six monthly releases inbetween the 2 yearly Ubuntu LTS releases but the support for interim releases is now down to 9 months). The correct information is here. Ubuntu 12.04 is the last LTS release. It will be replaced by 14.04 LTS at the end of April.

    Oh, in case anybody is wondering, the support period starts from the release date and not from the day we install Ubuntu.

    Regards.

    Well for the desktop it's only been two years.
    But I think it's been five for servers for as long as LTS has existed.

    True it was three.
    But it's only been two years since they increased it to five.

    Words seem to make more sense in my head than the real world, I guess.

    Stable and a decent version. I did have an issue a few weeks ago with high system load but all seems well now. 14.04 is in feature freeze and basically we are in bugfixes only until release.
