(sorry - I made a mistake in some dates I specified, in the prior e-mail)
I noticed in the link, that Lubuntu 18.04 LTS will be supported until
April 2021, which is 3 years (not 5).
I dug into this discrepancy, and found the following:
The 'main' archive of /Ubuntu 18.04 LTS/ will be supported for 5
years until April 2023. /Ubuntu 18.04 LTS/ will be supported for 5
years for /Ubuntu/ Desktop, /Ubuntu/ Server, and /Ubuntu/ Core.
/Ubuntu/ Studio /18.04/ will be supported for 9 months. All other
flavors will be supported for 3 years.
This means that even though the main archive of 18.04 LTS is supported
until April 2023, where Ubuntu has no i386 desktop support (and Lubuntu
is apparently the only Ubuntu variant supporting i386 desktop), support
of 32-bit desktop in Ubuntu will end in 2021, rather than the expected
Please let me know if this is correct, or not.
