Just a quick question, really - although this may turn into a slightly longer post!
I have been a very happy user of 10.04LTS (Lucid Lynx) on my desktop since it was released. In that time, I've tried out the various new releases, but quite frankly Ubuntu lost me at Unity. I like the desktop I've got with my Lucid, I've had three years to get it just the way I want, and I don't really want to change to a completely new desktop style. But I believe that support for this version is about to go away, and I don't really want to run a desktop that is not getting security updates.
Over the past few months, I've spent time trying out different alternatives. The closest I've got to my beloved 10.04LTS has been Xubuntu, but it has so many little niggles that make it just that little bit too different. Linux Mint with MATE has also been on my radar, but it doesn't seem to support Compiz, at least on my computer. And Kubuntu with the latest KDE is a good distro, but a bit too much of a step change.
Are there any other people out there still devoted to Lucid Lynx? If so, what are your plans once support expires? I'd like to be inspired by some other people's stories. I know it's getting long in the tooth, but I like to take something on and stick with it for as long as possible. If support wasn't going away, I'd stay with it for a lot longer! I'm also open to other distributions, if anyone has any suggestions.
I don't want this to be a pro/anti Unity bunfight. There are enough of those around the internet, and I've made my decision on Unity. It's a good product, but doesn't suit me personally, and I'd like to leave it at that!
