    not heard: Kubuntu hardy = no LTS support

    http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/1005960

    so if u plan on using Kubuntu apparently with Kubuntu ONLY it will NOT be a LTS supported version, and u'll get only 18 months of support as usually, however it looks like ubuntu with gnome on hardy heron will get the LTS label.

    Old news, but yes. With the work they are doing with KDE, it doesn't make sense to have an LTS version.

    I think it's a stupid idea and they are allowing themselves to succumb to the hype of KDE 4. Kubuntu 8.04 should be an LTS release with KDE 3.5 and then allow KDE 4 to mature with testing in Kubuntu 8.10.

    Well there is talk of closing all kde 3.X bugs once 4 comes out and Kubuntu already has some kde4 elements like dolphin and stargi(sp?). Kde is in fluxs so it makes sense that kubuntu not be LTS. LTS does mean 4 years support on the desktop right? By then kde 4 will be king and perhaps many parts of kde 3.X will be unmaintained.

    I think we may be giving far too much importance to the whole LTS deal.

    It has to do with the KDE release cycle.

    You can install KDE on Ubuntu LTS, so there isn't a problem.

    The point of LTS isn't increased stability, but for Businesses and those who need a system supported for longer than 6 months.

    At the time of release of KDE4, it's going to be in its infancy... you can get kubuntu 8.04 with KDE3 with the LTS label. At least, this is what I read somewhere... but lost the link.

    Indeed, I look upon LTS as boring. Strangely, the majority of people still use Dapper (Ubuntu counter).

    Maybe the counter wasn't updated.
