Submission + - Canonical could switch to rolling releases for Ubuntu 14.04 and beyond (extremetech.com)

massivepanic writes: For the longest time Canonical has slapped an LTS (“long term support”) moniker on some of their Ubuntu releases. Currently, a new major release of the operating system happens every six months, and is supported for 18 months after release. Whereas in the past when LTS versions received two years support or more, the current model — starting with 12.04 — supports new LTS releases for five years. However, a recent public Google Hangouts session revealed that Canonical has been thinking about switching from the venerable LTS model to a rolling release, starting with version 14.04.
