Removing Ubuntu releases, just Ubuntu (Aitor Pazos)

Nowadays Ubuntu has to support 4 releases at a time (8.04,8.10,9.04 and
9.10) and as result of that some issues aren't solved as quickly as it
could. Having a LTS (Desktop and Server) with periodical releases and a
Ubuntu for human beans ;) could be interesting.

Is it still necessary to even have releases every 6 months? How many more new features/changes need to be made to the OS? It seems pretty well developed as-is.
