    POLL: Extend Support for 10.04LTS

    How many of you would like to see support for 10.04 extended for 3 or more years longer. If users could convince MS to extend support for XP, why shouldn't 10.04 users have the same input?

    To vote no just vote What's 10.04.

    I can't vote any of these. I used 10.04 once, so I know it's there and what it is, but I do not want to extend the support.

    12.04 and a great Desktop that will be their flagship for 5 years is what they need to focus on now.

    If you're worried about Unity, you can very easily install Gnome Classic mode and have a familiar 2 panel interface. There is no need to extend the life of Lucid.

    XP support was extended not because of consumers but because of the underwhelming amount of companies that purchased Vista for enterprise use.

    If you want a Linux distro for super extended life and stability, use Debian. In my world I rather have Cutting Edge than Cutting Room Floor, 10.04 should just die a natural death.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Personally I'd rather they made 11.04 the extended LTS. Natty works much better than lucid on my machines.

    Your poll has no option for "no" therefore I did not vote.
    Ubuntu 10.04 will always be around and you can use it for 20 years if you want to. It's a question of manpower; if you are trying to run a company, do you want your developers spending their valuable time making minor improvements to a 5-year-old release, or working on projects that benefit the distro going forward (like fixing the Unity debacle)?

    The next LTS is going to have an extended life on the desktop, but I don't see any reason to retrospectively apply that to 10.04. The upgrade path from 10.04 is straight to 12.04, and then you're good for five years, and with more up-to-date packages.
