Re: Why must LTS die?
Ok. By development, I was thinking of pre-release, like the next version's alpha and beta. That's a lot more like a rolling release than the current release is. So I was thinking that you're either stuck with an LTS or a constant alpha. That would be scary. With a lot of rolling releases, they have different branches, so you can have the latest software, but with a little more stability.

For it to resemble a rolling release, they'd have to change that if they haven't already. But like I said, I'm sure I'm out of the loop.
But now people use PPAs so much that it practically is a rolling release.
