    Next LTS

    So does anyone know if the next Ubuntu LTS release will be set up like Unity or GNOME?

    Precise Pangolin 12.04 LTS will have Unity and will be supported for 5 years on the desktop.

    +1.

    Next LTS comes next April with 5 years support. It will come with Unity + Gnome 3 by default and Gnome-shell and Gnome-fallback available in the Software Center. Basically 12.04 will be a more polished version of 11.10, I don't think there will be any major changes.

    GNOME 2.32 is over, and will never come back. GNOME 3 has switched to Shell and Fallback mode. Ubuntu's Unity is a layer (a shell) over GNOME 3.

    Most likely Unity will be much better than it is right now. It's still quite young, and so is GNOME Shell. I strongly recommend you get used to GNOME 3's Shell or Unity.

    If you want a classic and long-term support for GNOME 2, then check the Scientific Linux link in my signature. It uses GNOME 2.28 and will be supported for at least another 5 years.

    If by "GNOME" you mean GNOME 2, then no, it wont. It's dead an won't be brought back to life. 12.04 will use Unity on GTK 3.

    No, it shouldn't.

    There would be a Lott less bugs making it a better system to release

    Not necessarily. A longer dev period would mean more new features (UI changes, program updates, new kernel versions, etc.), so there would just be more to debug. If you want less bugs, use the LTS release.

    Some changes would have to take place though. First of all, there should really be a netinstall version if that happens, because you're going to have a lot of updates, no matter how much they update the image on the servers.
    Second of all, newer versions of everything should regularly be provided. Everything being maintained to the same level as Arch would be a dream. That obviously happens for the first few months a version is released, but it quickly goes out of regular maintenance after a new version is released (-cough- 10.10), and you have to resort to adding PPAs.
